Dalwhinnie 15

Served with a random cheese. This is a really nice scotch. It's a dark amber, with a nice caramel nose. Going down, it's pretty full-bodied. It's got lots of honey, but with a healthy amount of peat as well. Not a peat bomb at all, just enough to balance out the sweetness. Quite smooth, but not at all flabby. Definitely one I'll be having again. Whisky Critic says he gets herbs and pepper in the body. I'm not sure I quite get that, but that's probably just a failing of my palate. It certainly seems more complex than my description above gives it credit for.
