Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second or double maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. Lovers of Dalwhinnie will appreciate the way the fragrance of Oloroso sherry overlays, but does not mask the heather honey distillery notes. Fresh sherry embraces the Maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie.
Peaty and surprisingly, still heathery. Spicy yet grapy. The palate is big, spicy buzz followed by an impressive build-up of very clear, well defined malt. After a quick burst of sweetness, a rich, grape effect moves in towards the middle. The finish has lots of oak & very dry with vanilla dominating.
