One of the highest of all Highland distilleries, Dalwhinnie produces a welcomingly gentle spirit that's full of character.
Nose: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
Body: Light to medium.
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.
