Highland Single Malt Whisky
Bottled By: Distillery 70cl / 43%
The 2022 release of the Classic Malts Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition, a long-time favourite of many fans thanks to its secondary maturation in Oloroso sherry-seasoned casks.
This Oloroso cask finishing period gives a lot of extra flavour to the Dalwhinnie, with lipsmacking sweet exotic fruit and nutty sherry notes complementing Dalwhinnie's gentle Highland maltiness. A classic after-dinner dram.

Official Tasting Notes
Appearance: Harvest gold. Long legs. Good viscosity.
Nose: Lightly heathery and sweetly honeyed, the aroma is beautifully introduced by a nutty-fruity waft of Oloroso. Tropical fruit notes of banana and pineapple give it a really appealing character, further developed by hints of fresh apricots, walnuts, and a little wood spice.
Palate: Creamy-smooth and coating, flowing lightly over the tongue. The taste is honey sweet, yet soon buzzes with warming nutmeg and pepperspice which nicely balance exotic, fruity hints of grape, peach and apricot.
Finish: Quite long, attractively sweet and malty yet also clean and with plenty of white pepper spiciness. Elegantly drying, vanilla-rich oak-spice lingers in the aftertaste.
