About the Distillery

Built in 1897 and currently the highest distillery in the country, Dalwhinnie – or “Plain of Meetings” in Gaelic – is named for its location at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges. Year after year it survives the coldest of conditions to produce smooth, golden heather honey-like spirit. Source: malts.com


Our Take

Sight: A lovely bottle holds an interesting light golden whiskey with a greenish hue. The 95 rating on Jim’s bible has given us great expectations.

Aroma: The aroma is delicious. Sweet, not boozy and it lingers in the nose. Maple tones, fruity.

Flavour: A delightful fruity sweetness that lingers in the back of the palate. Barely any peat. Smooth. Warm. Soft and nurturing.

Finish: True to the original aroma, the finish is also sweet. Not very complex but really sticky.

All in all a very kind whiskey. Enjoyable and easy to drink. Great for the drinkers that don't really enjoy the smokey ones.
