Insider knowledge: Dalwhinnie 36 Year Old whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Dalwhinnie 36 Year Old whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Slightly dry, gristy, walnut, hazelnut. Green oak, honeyed sweetness.
Palate: Silken, wet hay, chamomile. Peppery, tropical fruit. Candy floss.
Finish: Long, refined, herbal.
One great whisky for special occasions. A great rich taste!
