Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold

Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold is a 2015 addition to the Highland distillery's range inspired by the chilly climate up in the remote part of Scotland where their single malt Scotch whisky is distilled - as the label remarks, it was "Crafted by the Cold". It's made only with spirit that has been distilled between October and March, and interestingly enough, they suggest that you try serving this expression frozen!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Oak spice, pear skins, golden syrup and gristy malt. A touch of peach polish and chewy, sticky toffee. From the freezer it's fruitier, more green apple, apple sauce, toffee apple, sultana, even redcurrant.

Palate Very honeyed with warming peppery spices, Big Red cinnamon. From the freezer the honey is kept in check much more, as are the spices. Plenty of apple flesh and orange peel.

Finish Allspice, nutmeg and smoky malt. From the freezer the finish is more about the spicy cinnamon and peppercorn heat that's found on the palate at room temperature.

Overall An assertive, spicy, honeyed Dalwhinnie with enough sweetness and character to be served straight from the freezer (as intended).

Nice apple flavours, but average overall
Served from the freezer the consistency is thicker and the flavours definitely more apple and pear. But the alcohol burn is typical of this price range and, for the same money, I’d opt for Aberlour 12. For me, a very average whisky.

Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold
Very peppery and spicy for me. Catches the back of my throat. Definite pear ( more conference than Rocha). A lot lighter than I had expected from a “Winter” whisky. I would expect thicker more viscous. Nevertheless, a nice drink but not one of my favourites from Dalwhinnie or other brands.

I have found my any day dram.
I have tried a range of whisky from Bowmore (Whitesands, Laimrig, 12year, 18year) Glenmorangie (A Tale of Cake, The Quinta Ruban 12 and 14, Nectar D’Or and original), Bunnahabhain (Toiteach, Moine, 12 year) Loch Lomond (Coffey Still Unpeated and Peated)in the search of a decent low end whisky for the average night cap and none come close to what this beautiful dram offers.

Splendid
A remarkable offer, previously unknown to me. I will try it from the freezer - with ice or not? Beautiful flavours and aroma. We have the 15 yo which was on offer, so a speculative choice. Might buy another!

Not quite there.
Not great at room temperature. Harsh raw alcohol fume masks the flavours. Better with ice. A drop of water softened it and opened some sweetness. From the freezer it was warming but lost a lot of the character of the 15yr version, (which is excellent). Ok on discount at £25. If it’s full price buy the 15yr instead.

Disappointing
Was bought this as my love of the classic 15 yo Dalwhinnie is no secret. Bit this was very disappointing, and not to my taste. Sharp, but lacking in taste. It's fine but how it is more expensive than the classic I'll never understand

A great find, couldn't be happier.
I received this as gift over the Christmas period. What a great surprise this was. A decent malt from a fine stable. The flavour is subtle, slightly sweet, the taste is easy to savour and it's easy to drink. It's also as smooth as a dolphins todger. I will buy another bottle and highly recommend.
