A big, crisp, dry and veryaromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
Light to medium.
Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Possesses a gold hue. Honey and honeysuckle aromas dominate the nose. The palate shows warming flavors of sweet spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, along with custard and honey. Provides a long malty finish with a hint of vanilla bean. (Mar 2013)
One of the highest of all Highland distilleries, Dalwhinnie produces a welcomingly gentle spirit that’s full of character.
Smooth and soft with heather, honey and delicate spice, creamy not dry. A single malt with smoothness and depth that benefits from a full 15 year of aging.
