Dalwhinnie 15 yo, 43 %

This is a part of Diageos range ”Classic Malts”. Light floral notes on the nose with caramel. Give it a couple of minutes and a lot of fruit appear.

Some dried fruit comes forward in the taste and mixes with the fresh fruit and the caramel turns to honey. The finish has some malt and spices, and perhaps I can sense some gentle and light smoke in the background? Maybe it is just from the burned or toasted oak from the barrels.

The whisky is very “Highland”-like in smell, taste and character. It is both smooth and fresh but not that complex and a bit boring in the balance. I will rate this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
