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 flavor 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.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Cook & Bernheimer -- who purchased the distillery in 1934 - were able to acquire the whole site for only £1250,00. That is the equivalent of £22,484.89 today! How they got such a bargain we may never know.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
