So, you joined in and took part in our blind tasting session on twitter and by now you will know what whisky you sampled. So you can compare your notes with the recommended tasting notes, below are the official notes from Diageo.
What was it?
Our chosen mystery whisky was….... the lovely Dalwhinnie 15 years old. A great little dram and well priced too.
Dalwhinnie 15 - Tasting Notes*
- Region: A highland single malt scotch from the highest distillery in Scotland.
- Appearance: Gold in colour.
- Nose: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
- Body: Smooth, light to medium body.
- Palate: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather-honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
- Finish: Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.
Did you get everything described? How did your notes compare?
It’s an award winner you know. It's won awards consistently over the last few years and for a dram around £40 it certainly holds its own. And, wait for it. Dare we say it!! Jim Murray blessed this beauty with a staggering 95 points in his Whisky Bible 2014. But forget about Jim and the awards, it's about you, did YOU like it?
At Wishky we love tasting notes in principle, but we think a good dram comes down to one thing – YOUR taste! Some whisky fans have a trained palate and others don’t, but we all either like something or we don’t. It’s as simple as that.
A simple way to find out, would buy a full bottle? If you would, that’s how you’ll know you like it. We certainly would.
Did our trial work for you? Did you enjoy the engagement with your fellow whisky aficionado’s? Would you do it again?
If you want to give us some feedback on the trial please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll keep posting about the developments and changes to our service. If we think the trial was successful and you did then we do something about it.
