Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a highland Single Malt from the highest distillery and coldest in Scotland. Smooth, aromatic, heather and honey sweetness. Great chilled.

Serving Suggestion:
The clean, heather flavours call for a neat serve, and perhaps a little still spring water.

Region A highland malt from the highest distillery in Scotland.
Appearance Gold.
Body Smooth, light to medium body.
Nose A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
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.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

Along with Cragganmore, this is one of the underrated members of the original Classic Six. Quite why has always slightly baffled me. OK, it isn’t smoky, but the nose has a deep, soft, honeyed sweetness: think caramelized fruits, hints of thick cream, and a light touch of fennel and sharp citrus. Thick in the center and very gentle, it’s that chunkiness in the middle that is the secret to its beauty.

Underrated and charming with surprising mid-palate weight.

Dave Broom 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79

Often I have consigned Dalwhinnie to the freezer,but this is changing my mind. Definitely a whisky for spring.

Rob Allanson 2009, Whisky Magazine, Issue 79

A malt it is hard to decide whether to drink or bath in: I suggest you do both. One of the most complete mainland malts of them all. Know anyone who reckons they don't like whisky? Give them a glass of this - that's them cured. Oh, if only the average masterpiece could be this good. 95 points

Jim Murray 2013 Whisky Bible, p.93

The nose is fresh, with pine needles, heather and vanilla. Sweet and balanced on the fruity palate, with honey,malt and a very subtle note of peat. The medium length finish dries elegantly.

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.101

Full honey and sweet peat on the nose, a rich creamy mouthfeel and a delicious honey and exotic fruits mix all layered on soft peat foundations.
