The Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition is double-matured in Oloroso cask wood, its fragrant grapey notes carefully chosen to complement the signature moorland peat and heather-honeyed notes of Dalwhinnie.
Appearance: Pale amber.
Nose: Fresh sherry embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapey.
Body: Light to medium.
Palate: A big, spicy buzz, followed by an impressive build up of very clear, well defined malt. After a quick burst of sweetness, a rich, grape effect then moves in towards the middle.
Finish: Tons of oak. Very, very dry, with vanilla dominating.
