Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. Lovers of Dalwhinnie will appreciate the way the fragrance of Oloroso sherry overlays, but does not mask, the heather honey distillery notes.

Appearance: Pale Amber

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

Body: Light to Medium

Palate: 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.

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

STRENGTH 43% ABV

Producer
Its name derives from the Gaelic for a ‘meeting place’ of sheep and cattle drovers. So remote is it, that in 1994 it was officially recorded as the coldest inhabited place in Scotland for that year. No other distillery may use the water from Lochan an Doire Uaine, (Gaelic for ”Loch of the green thicket”) which lies at 2,000 feet in the Drumochter Hills; neither may they enjoy Dalwhinnie’s™ unique combination of a clean, accessible, malty-sweet taste leading in to a smooth and smoky Highland warmth. Dalwhinnie distillery is situated between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the austere, firm body of Speyside which begins some 25 miles to the north. The style is that of the Highlands; a resilient marriage of gentleness and spirit.
