Availability: 6,978 bottles
Bottle Size: 700ml
This ultra-rare single vintage Dalwhinnie has an astonishing bright intensity for its age and comes uniquely from refill American oak hogsheads, all of which were casked in 1989. Three decades of maturity have bought a fine elegance to the vibrant distillery character, allowing its moorland aromas to peak.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Mellow in feel, with some prickle, and slightly dry. The aroma is reserved, dusty and somewhat closed to start with. Sweet and fragrant with moorland scents and dried herbal notes, subtle traces of butterscotch and boiled sweets, and a pencil-box base of new wood.
Flavour Profile: Palate
At natural strength, smoothly creamy and slightly astringent in texture, the vibrant taste richly sweet overall, with a drying, gradually building peppery-spicy warmth.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Long and warming. Water cools the heat, yet leaves some warm spice in the aftertaste.
