Distilled when Dalwhinnie’s stills were heated by steam from a coal-fired boiler, it’s among the oldest ever to be bottled – complex with not a trace of wood.
Deep amber, with hints of bronze.
Grassy, moorland aromas. Rich and lightly sherried, with some fruit; behind it, faint smoke and linseed oil. Deep and complex.
Clean, very firm, maltiness. Honey-glazed biscuits. Pronounced vanilla. Slow-developing, appetising moorland grass and faint smoke.
Very long and warming.
