Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 1998
Bruce Mackenzie, master distiller at Dalwhinnie has taken his classic 15 year old malt and put it in to specially selected Oloroso sherry casks to produce ‘The Distillers Edition’. The casks are married together and then matured further to take in all the wonderful sherry cask notes.
The vanilla and honey notes that are present on the 15 year old are still there but they take a back seat to the sherry cask influence with treacle and dates rising up. Baked apple with dark chocolate and raisins that stay through the long sweet and spicy finish.
