DALWHINNIE 2002 (BOTTLED 2017) DOUBLE MATURED 43% – DISTILLERS EDITION
Befitting one of Scotland’s remotest Highland distilleries, Dalwhinnie has a character that stands apart.
It has the elegance and distinction of the old aristocracy but it embodies the broad, muscular body of the peaty, highland clan country too with notes of peat and heather in its rich repertoire.
Exceptionally smooth and full of flavour this special Dalwhinnie has been finished in the rich Oloroso cask-wood that has been especially selected for its fine yet robust balance.
The DISTILLERS EDITION of the Classic Malt Selection brings a new dimension of taste and exploration to the enjoyment of Single Malt Whisky. Each of the seven distilleries has hand-selected a small number of their casks for double maturing.
The whisky is matured for a second time in cask-wood which each Master Distiller has chosen to complement the unique character of the individual Malt whisky. The marriage of cask-wood and whisky has always been a traditional tool of the distiller’s craft but the addition of a second maturing in selected cask-woods bring a new depth and complexity to these great Malt whiskies.
Each special Limited Edition is hallmarked as a symbol of rarity and superior quality. The hallmark carries the symbol of the distillery, its founding year assay mark, the type of cask-wood in which the whisky has been double-matured and the monogram of each Master Distiller.
Each bottle in The Distillers Edition of the Classic Malts Selection carries a release number, individual to each distillery, which designates the selected casks that have been especially chosen for double maturation.
