Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a single malt Scotch Whisky from the Highlands based distillery of the same name, founded in 1897. From its home among rugged mountains, the highest distillery in Scotland produces the Dalwhinnie 15, a single malt to be savoured. Welcoming yet smoky, deep and full of character, Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is set apart from all other single malts. Evidently benefiting from an exclusive water source and 15 years of ageing, the result is a delectable Scotch Whisky in possession of a clean, accessible, malty-sweet taste, married in a blessed and unexpected union with a smooth and smoky Highlands mouth-feel. The inherent smoothness and softness of heather, honey, delicate spice and a touch of creaminess makes Dalwhinnie 15 perfect as an aperitif, or paired with chocolate cakes and chocolate desserts.

"Sublime stuff...a malt that is hard to decide whether to drink or bath in: I suggest you do both...one of the most complete mainland malts of them all. Know anyone who reckons they don't like whisky? Give them a glass of this - that's them cured. Oh, if only the average masterpiece could be this good."- Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread. Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish.
