Dalwhinnie 30 Year Old
 54.7%   |    70cl

Extra-mature & gentle highland malt with rich flavours from over thirty years of maturation in refill hogsheads and butts. From the highest distillery in Scotland, which is part of her coldest inhabited community, Dalwhinnie is a real mountain malt. It is as well adapted to the harsh climate of its barren and often desolate location as the mountain hares that abound the surrounding hills.

Information

Distillery: Dalwhinnie

Age: 30 years old

Strength: 54.7%

Region: Highland

Appearance

Deep gold, with copper lights. Good beading.

Nose

A mild nose overall, with some light prickle. The top notes are vegetal and faintly smoky, as with a snuffed candle, almost suggesting a Halloween pumpkin lantern; the overall impression is savoury, with a light sweetness suggesting moorland heather pollen. The base notes are of spicy fresh-planed wood, which if a drop of water is added becomes light balsa wood. Much sweeter at first after this, with a tangy, fruity note of pickled ginger.

Palate

At natural strength, big, creamy-smooth and mouth-filling in texture, with a richly sweet, waxy initial taste and spicy, with a touch of salt and an appealing, gradually building peppery warmth that carries on into the finish. When slightly reduced, the taste remains the same when a good drop of water is added, becoming a sweet, smoothly balanced whole that is delicious to drink.

Finish

Long and spicily warming, leaving the tongue tingling and a pleasantly earthy aftertaste. A little water lengthens the finish and reduces the spiciness.
