Back on the Dallas Dhu

A signatory special 1975, 31 year old. Dallas Dhu is a Speyside distillery that was closed in 1983. Very pale in color because it is from a single bourbon cask. Mouth-coating, but not heavy or cloying. A clean whisky that emphasizes its sweeter notes, with honeyed malt, ripe barley, butterscotch, and vanilla. Subtle notes of cinnamon, lemon grass, and fruit in syrup. A dried, oak-spice finish provides balance.
