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

Appearance:

Clear pale golden.

Aroma:

Freshly baked bread with a slightly burnt crust, leather and faint peat. Water releases orchard fruits, creamy vanilla and subtle cinnamon spice.

Taste:

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.

Aftertaste:

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.
