- Makes an ideal gift as an introduction to Dalwhinnie and Single Malt Whiskies
Made in the highest and coldest working distillery in Scotland, with water from a loch at 2000 feet, Dalwhinnie whisky thrives in extreme conditions - creating a liquid as sweet and accessible as its highland home is remote. Smooth and aromatic, Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a welcoming highland Single Malt. True to its location, the name derives from the Gaelic for ‘a meeting place of sheep and cattle drovers'. A good introduction to the delights of Single Malt Whisky - elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate and notes of heather and vanilla with a smoky, peaty aftertaste. On the nose, Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is clean and fresh, with pears, a touch of toffee and a soft floral note. Its palate is fruity and rich with notes of steamed syrup pudding and sponge cake and even a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Each sip finishes with just enough spice to match the fruit creating a lovely balance. This award winning Malt received San Francisco World Spirits Competition Gold 2016 and to appreciate it fully should be enjoyed neat, or with a drop of still spring water. Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old makes an ideal gift as an introduction to Dalwhinnie and Single Malt Whiskies
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 it 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. The other Classic Malts are:
