Dalwhinnie 25 yo 1987/2012 Special Release

Dalwhinnie 25 yo 1987/2012 Special Release

Official bottling 
Single malt - Central Highlands
52.1% ABV

Nose: Peaches, raisins, dried cherries, salted butter, peanuts. With water, chillies, peanuts, vanilla, cookie dough.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens, turns sticky.
Tasting: Sweet. Chillies, peaches, raisins, dried cherries, vanilla, cookie dough, peanuts. With water, more peaches, vanilla, cookie dough, all these notes double and drown out the rest.
Finish: Long. Cookie dough, vanilla, peaches, raisins, hints of coconut .


Tasty, surprisingly sweet and fruity. With water, the Dalwhinnie character - something I label cookie dough, after the Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavour - comes out very strongly. Also turns spicy, and very slightly woody and nutty.


I like this a lot.
