Appearance: Gold. Nose: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat. Body: Smooth, light to medium body. Palate: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather-honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread. Finish: Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.
How to Serve & Paring
The clean, heather flavours of Dalwhinnie's 15 Year Old call for a neat serve, and perhaps a little still spring water. Dalwhinnie's heather-honeyed charms find new depths when paried with crème brûlée or bread and butter pudding. Bartender's choice - Spiced Green Tea: Use green tea's tannins to offset the honey sweet centre of Dalwhinnie's 15 Year Old and create a crowd-pleasing cocktail to keep your guests guessing.
A DROP OF GOLD
No other distillery may use the water from Lochan an Doire Uaine - "Loch of the green thicket" - a gathering of pure snowmelt and rainwater high in the Drumochter Hills. That might be why Dalwhinnie Scotch is the only Highland whisky to offer a combination of clean and accessible, malty-sweet taste with a smooth and smoky warmth. It could also be why, Dalwhinnie releases its full honeyed sweetness when served chilled or over ice. When it was purpose-built in 1897, the distillery was first called Strathspey. Perhaps looking to distinguish their already distinctive whisky, the owners soon changed the name to Dalwhinnie when production started in 1898. It means "Plain of Meetings" in Gaelic, a reference to the location at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges. Though beautiful and ancient, the site is not without its drawbacks: a fire in 1934 caused a four year closure, with rebuilding hampered by bitterly cold winters and twenty foot snow drifts. Dalwhinnie distillery is situated between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the heather-honey sweetness of Speyside which begins some 25 miles to the north. The result is that of the Highlands; a resilient marriage of gentleness and spirit.
