Whisky Discovery #2

Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old (43% abv, OB, Bottled +/- 2010 20cl)

Highland Single Malt Whisky
Circa £9 at my local supermarket

Just a sampler at 20cl
Deciding that I needed something to compare alongside my first bottle of single malt I bought two 20cl bottles.

The flavours are simple, but flawless.
The nose is quite aromatic, toffee, fruit salad, lush nectarine, custard. Floral, apple blossom, honeysuckle. Apple peels, pear, touch of smoke. A malty palate, with walnut, honey and vanilla. Gentle smoke through the cereal with a touch of spice. The finish is long, malty, walnut, almond.
