Dalwhinnie Distillery Single Malt is great malt which Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible, this is excellent value for money. The flavours are simple, but flawless, a clean, crisp 15 year old from the Dalwhinnie distillery, also part of Diageo’s Classic Malts range.
Dalwhinnie Distillery Single Malt is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky – elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate and a whiff of heather on the finish. Part of Diageo’s Classic Malt range.
Dalwhinnie, pronounced “dell-winny” and derived from the Gaelic for “meeting place”, has to be one of the prettiest malt distilleries in Scotland. But that’s not really down to the buildings themselves, but to its location in the village of the same name. Dalwhinnie sits at the south-western end of the strikingly beautiful and very dramatic Cairngorms National Park and the Grampian mountains, just over an hour’s drive south of Inverness.
Smooth, aromatic, heather and honey sweetness. Great chilled. A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat. Smooth, light to medium body. Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather-honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
Aromatic, toffee, fruit salad, lush nectarine, custard. Floral, apple blossom, honeysuckle. Apple peels, pear, touch of smoke.
Malty. Walnuts steeped in manuka honey with vanilla sponge. Gentle smoke weaves its way through the cereal with a touch of spice.
