Dalwhinnie 30 Year Old (SR 2019) Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A most unusual extra-mature Dalwhinnie that is engaging, evocative and thoroughly satisfying.
IN A SENTENCE…
A delicious, finely balanced and supple old Dalwhinnie with a depth of flavour that repays thoughtful appreciation, this expression is both more rounded than younger siblings and takes.
a spicier view of life, too.
APPEARANCE: Deep gold, with copper lights. Good beading.
NOSE: A mild nose overall, with some light prickle. The top notes are vegetal and faintlysmoky, as with a snuffed candle, almost suggesting a Halloween pumpkin lantern; the overallimpression is savoury, with a light sweetness suggesting moorland heather pollen. The base notesare of spicy fresh-planed wood, which if a drop of water is added becomes light balsa wood. Muchsweeter at first after this, with a tangy, fruity note of pickled ginger.
BODY: Medium to full.
P ALATE:At natural strength, big, creamy-smooth and mouth-filling in texture, with a richlysweet, waxy initial taste and spicy, with a touch of salt and an appealing, gradually buildingpeppery warmth that carries on into the finish. When slightly reduced, the taste remains the samewhen a good drop of water is added, becoming a sweet, smoothly balanced whole that is delicious to drink.
FINISH: Long and spicily warming, leaving the tongue tingling and a pleasantly earthy aftertaste. A little water lengthens the finish and reduces the spiciness.
