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.
