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.
