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.

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.
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.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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.
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.
