Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old (1x 70cl)

Dalwhinnie Distillery stands in the Cairngorm National Park at the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the village of Dalwhinnie. From this remote but accessible location comes a liquid known as the gentle spirit. Built in 1897 and currently the highest distillery in the country, Dalwhinnie – or “Plain of Meetings” in Gaelic – is named for its location at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges. Year after year it survives the coldest of conditions to produce smooth, golden heather honey-like spirit.

Dalwhinne 15 Year Old is gold in colour. It has a big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat. It is smooth, with a light to medium body. The flavours are smooth, soft and lasting on the palate of heather-honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread. There is a long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish to this whisky that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.

The clean, heather flavours of Dalwhinnie's 15 Year Old call for a neat serve, and perhaps a little still spring water. Dalwhinnie's heather-honeyed charms find new depths when paried with crème brûlée or bread and butter pudding.
