The much-awarded and popular Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is an exceptional Single Malt Whisky that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning whisky palate. One of the highest distilleries in Scotland, the clean, heather-honey flavours of Dalwhinnie single malt whisky reflect its Highland mountain environment. No other distillery may use the water from Lochan an Doire Uaine, (Gaelic for "Loch of the green thicket") which lies at 2,000 feet in the Drumochter Hills; neither may they enjoy Dalwhinnie’s unique combination of a clean, accessible, malty-sweet taste leading in to a smooth and smoky Highland warmth.
Dalwhinnie distillery is situated between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the austere, firm body of Speyside which begins some 25 miles to the north. The style is that of the Highlands; a resilient marriage of gentleness and spirit. Dalwhinnie is the perfect whisky for sharing with others for that special occasion or celebration.
Made in the highest working distillery in Scotland at an altitude of 1,173 feet (357.5m) with stream water that flows from mountain lochs. Dalwhinnie distillery is situated between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the austere, firm body of Speyside which begins some 25 miles to the north. The style is that of the Highlands; a resilient marriage of gentleness and spirit.
Made in one of the coldest inhabited places in Scotland, with a recorded average annual temperature of 6oC in 1994. Dalwhinnie means ‘Plain of Meetings’ in Gaelic. It lies at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges.
Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
Suggested Serve: The wild heather aromas, honeyed taste & spicy intensity of Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky is great neat or with still water in a tumbler, but for an exciting serve try it from a frozen rocks glass, or over ice, which releases the full honeyed sweetness of the malt, or even chill a bottle in the freezer.
Food Match: Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a delight with dessert! The character of Dalwhinnie makes it best served with sweet accompaniments. Fabulous with a chocolate fondant, chocolate mousse, or bread and butter pudding.
Other Products in the Range: Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition - Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. Lovers of Dalwhinnie will appreciate the way the fragrance of Oloroso sherry overlays, but does not mask, the heather honey distillery notes.
