Review: Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 2011 – Distilled 1995

Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 2011

Day two of our Classic Malts Distillers Edition 2011 coverage continues with this 15-year-old Dalwhinnie, born in the Highlands of Scotland and finished in Oloroso sherry casks.

Big honey and nougat notes here, this spirit is showing a lovely maturity and balance, with smoldering maltiness that exhibits a touch of smoke on it. Coconut and a bit of banana are also present, atop a mild and pleasant sweetness driven by that citrus-fueled Sherry body. Some green pepper character in the finish doesn’t detract; instead it adds a touch of complexity.

In the grand scheme of things this is a very mild single malt, but it’s one that is surprisingly rich with flavor. All in all, a lovely little dram.

86 proof.
