About the Brand

Many late Victorian distilleries were bravely sited; ""madly located"" Dalwhinnie, one of the highest of all distilleries - at 1073 feet - and now home to the Classic Malts this delicate and smoky 25 year old Highland malt, was no exception. A great malt which Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible, this is excellent value for money. The flavours are simple, but flawless, a clean, crisp 25 year old from the Dalwhinnie distillery, also part of Diageo's Classic Malts range.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Candy necklaces, sugared almonds and spring meadows kick off the sweet side of the nose, with green leaves and freshly cut crass providing some contrast. Sour and savoury touches develop, with salty lemons joined by hints of heather. Palate: Sweet and fruity – apples, pears and unripe peaches – with a spicy backbone – cinnamon toast and clove. The spice builds on the palate, with the cloves starting to dominate, but it's all balanced out by sweet, but spicy, vanilla sauce. Finish: Soft and sweet – French toast with cinnamon and syrup – becoming creamy as it fades before landing on polished tables and gentle spice. Comment: A sweet and fruity whisky that shows off a lighter and more elegant side to Dalwhinnie's character that I wish we saw more often.
