Whisky review: Dalwhinnie 15

Dalwhinnie is another of the Diageo Classic Malts, coming from the Highlands of Scotland. It's billed as "The Gentle Spirit" though I'd argue that most single malt drinkers don't get into whisky because it's gentle...

Dalwhinnie 15 Year, 43%
Single malt Scotch whisky (Highlands)

Nose: Sea salt and a bit of peat. Floral.

Palate: A little peat and a pinch of salt. I keep looking but there really doesn't seem to be much else. Maybe a whimper of fruit. Warming.

Finish: More of the same.

Overall (of 100): 74. Where's the beef? This is gentle with a strong note of blah.
