A classic expression of Dalwhinnie, part of the original Classic Malts series from the late 1980s. The word Dalwhinnie in Gaelic means “meeting place”, the village of the same name stands at the junction of old cattle-droving routes (as well as whisky smuggling routes). The distillery started production in 1897 as Strathspey Distillery; few years later went into liquidation and in 1905 new owners resumed operation as Dalwhinnie Distillery Co. Dalwhinnie 15 years old is a perfect example of very “friendly” and elegant whisky, good for every palate and for every occasion.
Nose: very aromatic, floral, heather, honey, toffee, vanilla, fresh apples and pears, just a whiff of smoke.
Palate: extremely smooth, creamy maltiness, vanilla custard, honey, lemon grass, hints of peat and spice.
Finish: long and soft, malty with delicate nuttiness and spiciness.
