While a good 15-year old, I prefer a more complex flavor profile. It is not unreasonably priced. I think a less expensive alternative for a similar experience could be had tasting many 10 and 12 year-olds. If you’re into longer caskings, re-caskings or ex-sherry filled this may appeal to you.

General description

Today the tasting of another Diageo classic malt. The Dalwhinnie 15Y.
On the nose it is very sweet and fruity with apple, pear, vanilla and honey. Along with some hay and a touch of peat.
The 43% abv is friendly to the nose.
The taste is sweet, again with vanilla and honey, but also oaky spicyness.
The long spicy finish is a bit dry, but the honey and the touch of peat bring back the balance to this dram.

People who don't like peat or sherry bombs probably will like this one, but it's not my favourite.

76 points for this one.
