The Distillers Edition 16 Year Old Dalwhinnie 70cl 43%
Another entry into the Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition series, always a lovely treat when they get released. This one is a 1996 vintage which was finished in an Oloroso cask and bottled in 2012.
Official Tasting Notes
Appearance: Pale Amber.Nose: Fresh sherry embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapy.Body: Light to Medium.Palate: A big, spicy buzz followed by an impressive build up of very clear, well defined malt. After a quick burst of sweetness, a rich, grape effect moves in towards the middle.Finish: Lots of oak. Very, very dry with vanilla dominating.
