Second in my journey through the bottles of “water of life”, I’d like to introduce you to one of my personal favorites: Dalwhinnie.
Dalwhinnie is a very, very easy to drink Scotch. Consider it entry level, but still of a quality. A taste of Dalwhinnie brings to mind fields of heather, and indeed has a taste of heather flowers or heather honey in it. One might also get a sense of pear in the taste. The nose is sweet and slightly smoky.
This is a distillery that doesn’t have a tremendous selection, but that is no handicap whatsoever.
<-- Look, the distillery...where the magic happens!
It’s a great example of a Highland scotch. That's not to say it will cut off your head, but speaks to the style.
It’s average in price for Single Malt, taking about a $45 bite out of my wallet for each bottle. It is also a bottle that I make sure I always have at least one of at all times in my bar.
Dalwhinnie. Remember it, and Slainte!
