About Dalwhinnie 25 Year Old Limited Edition Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
After the barley has been milled and mashed, it is fermented in the distillery's original, wooden washbacks. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they absorb a portion of the heat generated during fermentation, and thus, enable a slower and longer fermentation process. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled twice, first through Dalwhinnie's copper-pot wash still, and then again through its copper-pot spirit still.
Dalwhinnie 25 Year Old Limited Edition Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled in 1987 and matured for a minimum of 25 years in rejuvenated American oak casks. The whisky was bottled at cask strength in 2012. It has a golden amber color, along with an aroma of roasted nuts, cinnamon buns and syrup. The aroma gives way to notes of malted grains, summer fruits (particularly cherries and plums), cocoa and coffee on the palate, and ultimately leads to a finish accented by notes of creamy vanilla, ginger spice and honey.
Only 5,358 bottles of this unique single malt were ever made, and only a handful of bottles were allocated to the United States. Pick one up today!
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
