Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold
Dalwhinnie // Highlands, Scotland
A new NAS addition to Diageo's core range overseas, it is unclear whether this whisky will be available stateside. Dalwhinnie is one of the few remaining distilleries to operate using a worm-tub condenser, an old-school distillation method that produces a heavier, more sulfuric distillate. The Winter's Gold celebrates the harsh climate of Inverness-shire, a remote region in the Central Highlands. The whisky uses only casks filled in winter months from October to March. It is bottled at 86 proof.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
