Dalwhinnie Distiller’S Edition 2002 Scotch Whiskey
Dalwhinnie Distiller’s Edition 2002 is the highest distillery in Scotland, and one of the most remote. This “double matured” single malt whiskey is finished in oloroso-cask, and is released as part of the Distillers Edition series. This one was distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2017. A reliably delicious release from the Highland-based distillery.
The 2002 vintage of Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition, bottled in 2017. Each distillery’s ‘DE’ is finished in a different wood – Dalwhinnie’s uses oloroso-sherry casks, resulting in an added layer of rich fruit. This Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition was distilled in 2002 and bottled in 2017. 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 double matured in ex-Oloroso casks.
Tasting Notes Of Dalwhinnie Distiller’s Edition 2002
Heady notes of fresh raspberry and dark chocolate, with touches of crumble pastry underneath .Fresh sherry embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapy.
Pomegranate, toasted brown bread leading to a hint of smoke, clove. 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.
Blackberry and raisin linger on the finish.ots of oak. very dry with vanilla dominating.
