Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old

Dalwhinnie 15 yearFrom the highest distillery in Scotland, set in the windswept Grampian mountains with their unlimited supply of fresh spring water, comes this delightfully gentle, delicately smoky malt.

The Gaelic word from which the name Dalwhinnie comes is Dail-coinneeamh, which translates as ‘meeting place’. The highest distillery in Scotland was founded on these bleak, wind-swept central Highland pastures in 1898.

The classic Highland ,ast, Dalwhinnie ages slowly to develop a remarkable character. Fifteen years of gentle ageing make it a smooth, subtle malt without a trace of harshness. Heart-warming yet also mellow and honeyed, its combination of delicacy and depth sets it apart.

Where is matters, Dalwhinnie retains the old ways. Increasingly rare wooden worm-tubs, a landmark outside the distillery as distinctive as its pagoda roofs, help this remain a spirit of real character.

Hidden depths are also apparent: Smooth-tasting Dalwhinnie yields flavours of creamy vanilla and a heather-honey sweetness, finishing in a smoky Highland glow of surprising intensity.

Dalwhinnie is the remote Highland destination on a journey around Scotland’s six malt whisky making regions.
