From the central Highlands comes an old favourite. Dalwhinnie is the second-highest distillery in Scotland (after Braeval) and is situated halfway between Perth and Inverness. This 15 year old is the standard expression from this distillery and is heathery, voluptuous, honeyed and, underneath it all, smoky. This is one of the best selling single malts in the world. After you’ve had a sip, you'll know why.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Light dusty oak and a merest hint of peat. Tapioca pudding and mangoes.
Palate: Oak gradually building, before being joined by honey and soft tropical fruit.
