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.
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.
