Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old / 43% / 70cl
The ultimate lunchtime whisky, Dalwhinnie is honeyed and delicate. Located in among the wild and rugged heathery slopes of the Grampian mountains, it’s built next to a tributary of the River Spey. In fact, Dalwhinnie is the highest distillery in Scotland.
The 15-Year-Old is regarded as a classic whisky, and is well worth trying as an example of an archetypal Highland Whisky.
Nose: Clean fresh springtime floral notes, some delicate honey and sweet pears with a little hint of cream. Soft light custard tart dusted with icing sugar, milk froth and apple turnover.
Palate: A sweet fresh fruity start on the front of the palate, a soft sponge with apricot jam, crispy doughnuts, more fruits come in like apple pears and honeydew melon before more desert notes like waffles with maple syrup and cream.
With a little spice and soft woody notes this dram has a great taste profile for those who prefer a lighter dram.
