Part of Diageo's Classic Malt range, the name Dalwhinnie is a corruption of the Gaelic word ‘Dail-chuninnidh’ meaning ‘meeting place’. Built in 1897, at 1,073 feet, the distillery is the 2nd highest in Scotland. However, the whisky is aged off-site predominantly in refill American oak bourbon casks.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/02/2013
Clear pale golden.
Freshly baked bread with a slightly burnt crust, leather and faint peat. Water releases orchard fruits, creamy vanilla and subtle cinnamon spice.
Ultra-mellow barley water with a gradual build to an elegant, flavoursome, light to medium bodied palate with vanilla, dried apricot, orange marmalade, light toasty notes and faint peat smoke.
Long dry malty finish fades with walnut lightly smoked buttery digestive biscuits. Mellow with sweet barley water throughout. A faultless and satisfying beginner’s malt.
