A fourth entry in the Diageo Special Releases range for Dalwhinnie, following on from a IWSC Best In Class winner. This time it's a 25 year old whisky distilled back in 1987.Tasting Notes (1)
- White Pepper
Light, golden amber. Good beading.
Opens cautious and soft, with waxy honeycomb offset by fresh, gently tart fruit notes, but soon reveals an aromatic complexity beyond its age. Sweet wood-shavings. The trademark Dalwhinnie honeycomb is the keynote, with heather and natural moorland scents, then traces of cream soda. Later, a nutty dryness coats rich, textured Italian chocolate ice-cream. Water raises warm candlewax; the effect is of a gentle waft of sugared patisserie-fresh glazed fruit pastries, with top-notes of honeysuckle, and the nose-feel is now more peppery.
Best straight, when it is smooth, sweet, distinctly waxy and initially cooling (again, honeycomb), with a rich marriage of oily malt and light, drying winey notes. Later, elegant vanilla-laced tannins give balancing hints of spice. With water (just a drop) the texture remains smooth and ‘teeth-coating’; the sweetness is still apparent. Finally dry and herbal (grassy freshness) with a hint of cleansing resin.
Rounded and medium to long. Warming, with a distinct rich, oaky spiciness in the aftertaste. With water, softer, shorter and less obviously spicy, the resin now transformed into late clove.
