Dalwhinnie Distiller’s Edition 2011

Country: Scotland
Region: Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 92 points

This year’s 15-year-old edition was finished on Oloroso sherry casks, and the nose has a mild smokiness with notes of honey, nutmeg, dried apricots, and apples. The taste is rich and thick with a good balance of of honey sweetness, allspice, oak, and hints of dried fruits underneath. The finish is oaky, long, and dry with touches of honey and ganache adding balance.
