The classic Highland malt. Dalwhinnie say: Their malt ages slowly to develop a remarkable character. Fifteen years of gentle ageing make it a smooth, subtle malt without a trace of harshness. Heart-warming yet also mellow and honeyed, its combination of delicacy and depth sets it apart.
|Distillery: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
The WSD: Hints of maple and sherry wood mingle together. Sweet wood and mushroom risotto becoming pineapple and pear in a wooden bowl. (M&V)
|Distillery: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
The WSD: Candy sweetness. Oak sawdust, spiced pineapple chunks becomes clementine liqueur. Macerated opal fruits with a touch of wax.(M&V)
|Distillery: Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt|
