Highland wonder with a touch of Sherry magic.

Dalwhinnie, Scotland has a population of 80 and is home to a small schoolhouse, a pub, an inn, a train station, and the Dalwhinnie Distillery. What else do you need? The distillery, founded in 1897 by John Grant, is famous for being the “highest” distillery in Scotland. In this case, we are talking about altitude, sitting at 1164 feet above sea level. Today, Dalwhinnie is owned by Diageo. Importantly, only 10% of production ends up in their single malt nameplate, and they are a relatively small distillery with only one wash and one spirit still. The rest goes into the famous blended Scotch “Black & White.” So grab what you can get your hands on. 

The Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition starts with their core 15 YO single malt, but adds at least a year of finishing in Oloroso Sherry casks which adds some real joy into this classic Highland sipper. You still get the floral-honey notes that Dalwhinnie is famous for, but that Spanish Sherry wonder-wood deepens that character and flavour profile into something really special. A lot of Dalwhinnie’s more ardent fans suggest that you serve this dram straight from the freezer — ice cold without dilution — and then notice how the Whisky slowly “blooms” in the glass as it warms.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

James,
Terrific Scotch!! Compared it to a 15 year old Dalwhinnie we have and it has got a much darker taste. Warmer on the way down! Great notes of honey and floral on the nose and flavor of caramel and walnuts. F8nish of heathery peat and cinnamon spice. Sherry finish flavor at end is great. One of my favorite scotches to date.

Ty,
Good dram, some good flavors. I’m a Highland scotch fan, but for 15+ years and 43% this has an alcohol sharpness which is not acceptable, especially in this price range.

Michael,
Honey, brown sugar, berries, and sweet floral notes on the nose. Flavors come in bright with honeysuckle nectar and sweet apples. Darker caramel sweetness and oatmeal-like grain sshow up further in, along with a touch of walnuts. The finish has very gentle heather-y peat notes and a lingering cinnamon spice. A wonderful Scotch for when one's in the mood for something sweet... the sherry finish really adds a warm richness keeps this very sweet whisky balanced all the way through. A wonderful dessert dram.
