Dalwhinnie distillery is situated between the gentle, grassy style of the Lowlands and the austere, firm body of speyside, which begins some 25 miles to the north. Dalwhinnie has a big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat. Light to medium body, smooth palate, soft and lasting flavours of heather, honey sweetness and vanilla. The style is that of the Highlands a resillient marraige of gentleness and spirit. As befits a malt from such a place, Dalwhinnie defines simple description.
