Dalwhinnie 1997: The 1997 vintage of Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition, bottled in 2013. Each distillery’s ‘DE’ is finished in a different wood – Dalwhinnie’s uses oloroso sherry casks, resulting in an added layer of rich fruit.
Tasting notes: A complex and deeply satisfying Scotch which can hold its own against older vintages from some of the larger distilleries. It releases notes of vanilla, wood, caramel and peat (without smokiness) and a hint of warm hay. It is very dry and light on the palate with a slight sycamore woodiness, vaporising quickly in to warm honey, cinnamon, dark earth with an undertone of caramel and a hint of sherry at the finish.
