Dalwhinnie 36 Years Old
 47.2%   |    70cl

A fresh, honest, whisky, advanced in age but still lively. Robust and straightforward in character but with flavours gradually unfolding, as invigorating as a walk on the hills.

Dalwhinnie 36 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Highlands.

Appearance

Full gold in appearance with hints of bronze.

Nose

Aromatic and oily, with some restrained peat and grassy, moorland, aromas. Rich and lightly sherried, with tinned apricots, like sherry trifle. A light cream-cheese note, slightly waxy, betrays its age.

Body

Very light bodied - as fresh as spring water.

Palate

Clean, very firm, maltiness. Honey-glazed biscuits. Pronounced vanilla. Slowly developing lively, appetising, moorland grass and faint smokiness.

Finish

Very long and warming. Fresh raspberries, with a hint of wax behind. Slightly waxy mouth-feel and aftertaste.

Information:

Distillery: DalwhinnieTM

Age: 36 years old

Strength: 47.2% ABV

Place of Origin: Dalwhinnie

Region: Highlands

Nose:

Aromatic. Oily. Restrained peat. Some grassy, moorland, aromas. Rich and lightly sherried, with tinned apricots, like sherry trifle. A light cream-cheese note, slightly waxy, betrays its age. Fragrant sphagnum moss giving an earthiness after a moment or two. The waxiness becomes more apparent after water is added; behind the fruit is a faint whiff of smoke and a trace of linseed oil. Deep and complex, but not dark.

Palate:

Clean, very firm, maltiness. Honey-glazed biscuits. Pronounced vanilla. Slowly developing lively, appetising, moorland grass and faint smokiness. Pleasant acidity after an initial sweetness, and "spritzich" on the tongue.
