Lovers of Dalwhinnie will appreciate the way the fragrance of Oloroso sherry overlays, but does not mask, the heather honey distillery notes.

Serving Suggestion:
A lot of Dalwhinnie's more ardent fans suggest that you serve this dram straight from the freezer - ice cold without dilution - and then notice how the whisky slowly blooms in the glass as it warms.

Region A Highland whisky with a lot of Oloroso influence.
Appearance Pale amber.
Body Light to medium.
Nose Fresh sherry embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapy.
Palate A big, spicy buzz followed by an impressive build-up of very clear, well defined Scotch. After a quick burst of sweetness, a rich, grape effect moves in towards the middle.
Finish Tons of oak. Very, very dry with vanilla dominating. The perfect dram for those in search of a very dry malt finish.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

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.

Dave Broom, Whisky Advocate Summer 2012

Matured in oloroso casks. The oloroso takes what is typically a pleasingly honeyed, but not particularly complex, malt and adds a layer of fruit to it. Crisp, clean notes of lemon, pineapple, and ginger, are softened by honeyed malt, vanilla, and hay. Soft, lingering finish.
