Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl

Smooth aromatic heather and honey sweetness, Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a clean, crisp Scotch which provides a perfect introduction to the delights of single malt whisky. Dalwhinnie is the highest and coldest distillery in Scotland and was founded at the end of the 19th century. Dalwhinnie Scotch is the only Highland whisky to offer a combination of clean and easy-drinking, malty-sweet flavours with a smooth and smoky warmth. Dalwhinnie releases its full honeyed sweetness when served chilled or over ice. It makes the perfect gift for whisky lovers looking for a smooth, deliciously enjoyable single malt.

Serving Suggestion: The clean, heather flavours call for a neat serve, and perhaps a little still spring water.

"Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn’t smoky, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the center and very gentle, it’s that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty."

Dave Broom, Whisky Advocate Summer 2012

"Underrated and charming with surprising mid-palate weight."

Dave Broom 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79

"Often I have consigned Dalwhinnie to the freezer,but this is changing my mind. Definitely a whisky for spring."

Rob Allanson 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79

"A malt it is hard to decide whether to drink or bath in: I suggest you do both. One of the most complete mainland malts of them all. Know anyone who reckons they don't like whisky? Give them a glass of this - that's them cured. Oh, if only the average masterpiece could be this good. 95 points"

Jim Murray 2013 Whisky Bible, p.93

"The nose is fresh, with pine needles, heather and vanilla. Sweet and balanced on the fruity palate, with honey,malt and a very subtle note of peat. The medium length finish dries elegantly."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.101

"Full honey and sweet peat on the nose, a rich creamy mouthfeel and a delicious honey and exotic fruits mix all layered on soft peat foundations."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.101

Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.
