Located in the Highlands where it is quite remote and windy, the Dalwhinnie Distillery is a distillery that doesn't quite get the press it deserves. It is a whisky that displays classic Highland malt qualities of honey and heather. This is one of the original six distilleries in Diageo's Classic Malts range and they release very few distillery bottlings.

Tasting Notes

"Aged in mostly ex bourbon barrels, the aroma is very sweet with vanilla and honey at the center of it all. The whisky is full and rich on your palate with some classic Highland heather and salt. Overall, though, this whisky is all about the honey bear. Although not exceedingly complex, this is an underrated malt. Introduce your friends to this whisky who don't know they like Scotch yet."
