product Details

Dalwhinnie 1970 Gordon and MacPhail 

Dalwhinnie was one of the six original Classic Malts when they were selected by United Distillers (now Diageo) back in 1988, and it was tipped to become the favourite among consumers on account of its flawless floral flavours and elegant character. Although eventually pipped at the post by the smoky dark horse that was the Lagavulin 16 year old, it remains a well-loved single malt. The distillery is both the highest and coldest in Scotland, contributing to its unique flavour through the rapid condensing that occurs in its worm tubs.

A 1970 vintage, this was bottled by Gordon and MacPhail in the 1992 as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. 

 The label on this decanter features artwork adapted from the 8th century Book of Kells.
