Dalwhinnie 30 Year Old Special Release 2019 is part of the much anticipated annual Diageo special release.Matured in a combination of refill hogsheads and butts for 30 years, it was bottled in 2019 at a natural cask strength of 54.7% abv. Just 7,586 bottles have been filled with each one bearing its own unique bottle number.
Appearance : Deep gold, with copper lights. Good beading.
Nose : A mild nose overall, with some light prickle. The top notes are vegetal and faintly smoky, as with a snuffed candle, almost suggesting a Halloween pumpkin lantern; the overall impression is savoury, with a light sweetness suggesting moorland heather pollen. The base notes are of spicy fresh -planed wood, which if a drop of water is added becomes light balsa wood. Much sweeter at first after this, with a tangy, fruity note of pickled ginger.
Body : Medium to full.
Palate : At natural strength, big, creamy -smooth and mouth -filling in texture, with a richly sweet, waxy initial taste and spicy, with a touch of salt and an appealing, gradually building peppery warmth that carries on into the finish. When slightly reduced, the taste remains the same when a good drop of water is added, becoming a sweet, smoothly balanced whole that is delicious to drink.
Finish : Long and spicily warming, leaving the tongue tingling and a pleasantly earthy after taste. A little water lengthens the finish and reduces the spiciness.
