Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold Highland Single Malt Whiskey 70cl
An indulgent, honeyed Dalwhinnie that is comforting, rich and sweet, with notes of heather and peat and spicy warmth. This denser, more deep-flavoured Dalwhinnie combines a reassuring, gentle firmness with an aromatic spiciness while remaining superbly accessible throughout. It's crisp, dry and fragrant nose and smooth flavours of heather, honey-sweetness, malt and citrus-fruits lead to a lingering, sweet finish with smoke, peat and malt.
~ APPEARANCE: Deep gold; almost polished bronze.
~ BODY: Medium in body. Soft and golden syrup-smooth.
~ NOSE: Broad, firm, smooth and clean, yet with a compelling, sweet, honeyed, dessert character that suggests the indulgence to come. An ever-present fragrant and smooth waxiness underscores higher glimpses of fruit, suggesting a caramel tart on a smear of sharp apricot coulis, or sweet shortcrust pastry offset by orange zest. There’s also a menthol freshness and a modest, smoky note.
~ PALATE: Smoothly honeyed, sweet, comforting and rich- textured with a balancing ripe autumn-fruit tartness. Growing spicy, with gingerbread; then denser with rich malt loaf, suggestions of molasses and mint; and later soft, distant smoke.
~ FINISH: Exquisitely heart-warming: lingering and comforting with a pleasingly chewy conclusion. Smooth and unctuous with sweet malt, raisins and dark chocolate. Growing lightly aromatic, too, with hints of dates and sandalwood.
Best served straight from the freezer.
