From the coldest and highest Distillery in Scotland.
 
Dalwhinnie, Scotland, has a population of 80. That’s not a typo. It is home to a small schoolhouse, a pub, an inn, a train station, and the Dalwhinnie Distillery. What else do you need, really? The distillery, founded in 1897 by John Grant, is famous for being the coldest and the "highest" distillery in Scotland. When you are talking about Spirits, "highest" can mean several things, right? In this case, we are talking about altitude, sitting at nearly 1100 feet above sea level. 
 
Only 10% of production ends up in their Single Malt nameplate, and they are a small shop to boot with only one wash and one Spirit still each. The rest goes into the famous blended Scotch "Black & White." So grab what you can get your hands on. 
 
Dalwhinnie has a reputation for creating light, almost gentle Whiskies, and Dalwhinnie 15 Year is their most famous expression. Its flawless, clean and crisp flavors give this Highlander a recognizable place in the Diageo's Classic Malts range.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose... apples, vanilla, and citrus.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Smooth, soft and lasting flavors of heather-honey sweetness, apple peels and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavors and hints of malted bread.

Finish
Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to vanilla, apples, walnuts, smoke and malt.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Several Dalwhinnie buildings -- including the still house and primary wharehouse - are "B-listed Biuldings." This means that they are of historic importance to the region, due to tradition or architectural styles.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
