Long considered one of the classic whiskies of Scotland, Dalwhinnie 15 Years Old is a welcoming, satisfying single malt that exemplifies the Highland style.
Like the finer things in life, it is simple, yet flawless. It is crisp and clean, but full of character. Renowned for its smoothness, this single malt fully benefits from its fifteen years of aging.
Its nose opens with aromas of toffee, lush nectarine, and custard, leading into elements of apple blossom, honeysuckle, and pear with just a touch of smoke. Smooth, lasting flavors of heather, sweet honey, and vanilla come into play, followed by deeper citrus flavors and a touch of malted bread. Its palate is long and lingering, yielding to a finish that awakens with spice, gentle smoke, and a close of walnut and malt.
It makes a perfect accompaniment to the first crackling fireplace of fall.
In the States, Dalwhinnie is a popular, but often underrated, Scotch whisky. Discover for yourself why this is just what you need for the cooler crunch of autumn.
You can find Dalwhinnie 15, as well as a host of other whiskies as we enter Scotch season, at large, family-owned liquor stores like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, which cater to the discriminating whisky drinker, as well as those just beginning their fine malt journey.
