Dalwhinnie is a well known Whisky as it is classed a one of Diageo's "Classic Malts" range and flies the flag for their highland malts.

As I have mentioned in some previous reviews I am tickled by the trend of the distilleries promoting a unique fact about themselves. Things such as The oldest, tallest, most stills, first to have a one armed Venezuelan distillery manager, etc. In this case the Dalwhinnie distillery is the highest distillery in Scotland.

This review was done using a Glencairn and a drop of water. The colour is pale straw in the glass.

The nose offers promise of Apples, cut grass, fudge and floral notes.

It's interesting on the palate, soft, sweet, apples, pears and vanilla. The finish is medium long and malty with a hint of spice.

It is lovely, not a great but a solid drinkable dram that makes you want to go back for one more.
