Fresh sherry aromas embraces the maltier, more honeyed aspects of Dalwhinnie. Notes of Peat and heather as well as Spicy and grapy are also evident.
On the palate is a 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. There is lots of dryness as well as a flavor oak on the finish but is vanilla dominated.
