Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition, 1990 vintage, 43%

Price: $65.00 Issue: Summer 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Matured in oloroso casks. The oloroso takes what is typically a pleasingly honeyed, but not particularly complex, malt and adds a layer of fruit to it. Crisp, clean notes of lemon, pineapple, and ginger, are softened by honeyed malt, vanilla, and hay. Soft, lingering finish.
