Dalwhinnie Winters Gold On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

A newer expression of this classic Highland Scotch.

Appearance

Deep gold; almost polished bronze.

Nose

Broad, firm, smooth and clean, yet with a compelling, sweet, honeyed, dessert character. Fragrant, smooth waxiness underscores glimpses of fruit.

Body

Medium in body. Soft and golden syrup-smooth.

Palate

A balancing ripe autumn-fruit tartness. Growing spicy, with gingerbread; then denser with rich malt loaf, molasses and mint; and later soft, distant smoke.

Finish

Lingering and comforting with a pleasingly chewy conclusion. Smooth and unctuous with sweet malt, raisins and dark chocolate.

Information:

Distillery: DalwhinnieTM

Strength: 43% ABV

Place of Origin: Dalwhinnie

Region: Highlands

Taste:

in brief… An indulgent, honeyed Dalwhinnie that is comforting, rich and sweet: smooth and dense yet also clean and open, with notes of heather and peat and a spicy warmth.

in a sentence… This denser, more deep-flavoured Dalwhinnie combines a reassuring, gentle firmness with an aromatic spiciness while remaining superbly accessible throughout; its crisp, dry and fragrant nose and smooth flavours of heather, honey-sweetness, malt and citrus-fruits lead to a lingering, sweet finish with smoke, peat and malt. 

Nose:

Broad, firm, smooth and clean, yet with a compelling, sweet, honeyed, dessert character that suggests the indulgence to come. An ever present fragrant and smooth waxiness underscores higher glimpses of fruit, suggesting a caramel tart on a smear of sharp apricot coulis, or sweet shortcrust pastry offset by orange zest. There’s also a menthol freshness and a modest, smoky note.

Palate:

Smoothly honeyed, sweet, comforting and rich- textured with a balancing ripe autumn-fruit tartness. Growing spicy, with gingerbread; then denser with rich malt loaf, suggestions of molasses and mint; and later soft, distant smoke. Delicious just as it is: water may be added if desired, but adds little.

Finish:

Exquisitely heart-warming: lingering and comforting with a pleasingly chewy conclusion. Smooth and unctuous with sweet malt, raisins and dark chocolate. Growing lightly aromatic, too, with hints of dates and sandalwood.

"Served straight from the freezer, it was delicious: rich, oily, with just a perfect amount of sweetness balanced with a drier edge at the back of the palate."
