Dalwhinnie is Scotland's highest distillery, and one of the most remote, in the middle of the Grampian mountains. A historical meeting place in this exposed, rugged terrain, it has had an interesting history! Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a crisp, dry aromatic nose, then soft flavours of heather, honey-sweetness, malt and citrus-fruits lead to a lingering, sweet finish and finally more smoke, peat and malt.Aroma: Light to medium intensity; little complexity. First impression is of orange juice, with some grainy mustard; mead-like, or like concentrated white wine.
Flavour: Smooth and somewhat waxy; tangy and mouth-drying; easy to drink. The overall flavour is dry with a bitter finish and aftertaste. Some heather flowers.
