This bottle of Dalwhinnie 15y was in the first batch of scotches I received when I decided to take it up as a hobby. If drinking is a hobby. I guess the pausing to take notes validates the whole experience. Anyway, when I first tried Dalwhinnie, it was a bit of a horsekick to my naive palette. With some experience… uh… in my mouth? Dalwhinnie has become much more drinkable.
Neat: smell of apple and alcohol, sweet and mouthfilling
With ice: tamed, brings out the oak. Very smooth.
Try it? Sure. Buy it? Not for freshmen.
