A limited release from the Dalwhinnie distillery in the Highlands, launched as part of Diageo's 2021 Distillers Edition range. Distilled in 2006, double-matured in ex-bodega Oloroso casks and bottled in 2021. Bottled at 43%.
Nose: Fresh notes of Oloroso embrace malty, honeyed Dalwhinnie. Peaty and still heathery. Spicy yet grapey.
Palate: A big, spicy buzz, with very clear, well defined malt. A quick burst of sweetness then rich and grapey.
Finish: Tons of oak. Very, very dry, with vanilla dominating.
