- ABV 43%
From the highest distillery in Scotland (at 326 metres above sea level), set in the windswept Grampian mountains of the Highlands comes this remarkably well-rounded malt. This expression comes with and extra twist: As with previous bottlings, the 1998 is an Oloroso-Sherry cask finished Dalwhinnie. Bottled in 2015, the natural honey and orchard fruit notes lend Dalwhinnie to a range of desserts - anything from cheesecake to chocolate truffles. Tasting note: Deep gold. Very softly scented, almost floral and quite honeyed with some dark chocolate too. Air contact adds hints of ripe stone fruits. Generous, malty delivery is semi-sweet, plump and nicely rounded; Finish offers a juicy grape-like burst followed by drier wood and spice notes. Aftertaste includes dried fruit and vanilla-wafer biscuit; distant peat here? Excellent balance and persistence. References Glendronach 15 in terms of its richness, though the Sherry input is less profound. Delicious malt. 43% Alc./Vol. Other reviews... [1992 Reviewed] Equally honeyed; in fact here the finish (oloroso this time) seems to enhance the sweetness. Out comes Manuka honey, Greek yogurt, and heavy blossom notes while the sherry itself brings in a nutty, polished note. There’s just a hint of sulfur when you add water (Dalwhinnie is a sulfury new make). The finish is long with some Brazil nut. Try frozen with dessert.
