Dalwhinnie Malt Whisky 70Cl
Add to basket
The long ageing process of this 15 Year Old whisky creates complex honey and vanilla flavours, with hints of malted bread and delicate spices. Known as ‘the mountain malt', this classic Highland whisky sits between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the austere character of Speyside to the north.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is perfect neat or with water. For something different though, chill the bottle in the freezer and pour into a frozen glass.
Having undergone a second maturation in casks previously used to make Oloroso Sherry, Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition should really be enjoyed neat.
The Gaelic word from which the name Dalwhinnie comes is Dail-coinneeamh, which translates as "meeting place". The highest distillery in Scotland was founded on these bleak, wind-swept central Highland pastures in 1898.
The classic Highland malt, Dalwhinnie 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 is apart.
Where it matters, Dalwhinnie retains the old ways. Increasingly rare wooden worm-tubs, a landmark outside the distillery as distinctive as its pagoda roofs, help this remain a spirit of real character.
Hidden depths are also apparent. Smooth-tasting Dalwhinnie yields flavours of creamy vanilla and a heather-honey sweetness, finishing in a smoky Highland glow of surprising intensity.
Dalwhinnie is the remote Highland destination on a journey around Scotland's six malt whisky making regions.
