Description

This Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition was distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2015.  It is said to have elegance and distinction of the old aristocracy but it embodies the broad, muscular body of the peaty highland clan country too with notes of peat and heather in its rich repertoire.  Who would have thought a whisky could do that?.  This Dalwhinnie has been finished in ex-Oloroso casks.

Tasting Notes

Nose
Distillery: Fresh sherry embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapy.

The WSD: Pineapples in orange juice with oak sprinkles, becomes cinnamon spiced Granny Smith's apples. (M&V)

Taste
Distillery: A big, spicy buzz followed by an impressive build up of very clear, well defined malt. After a quick burst of sweetness, a rich, grape effect moves in towards the middle.

The WSD: Spiced creaminess with hints of peppered raisins. A touch of burnt toffee and Chriskingle oranges (M&V)

Finish
Distillery: Lots of oak. Very, very dry with vanilla dominating.
