Dimple 15 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
Remembered by the distinct shape of its bottle as much as it is for the drink inside, Dimple whisky is a blended Scotch whisky from the house of Haig. Created by blending together malt whiskies from the Glenkinche distillery, the Linkwood Distillery and many others, this blended Scotch whisky is matured in used Bourbon Oak barrels.
Carrying an age statement of 15 years, meaning the youngest whisky used in their blend is at least 15-years-old, the Haig Dimple Scotch whisky earns its name due to the dimpled, three-sided bottle it is packaged in. It has long been enthusiastically considered a collector’s item for every whisky lover who takes pride in amassing a collection worth admiration.
Dimple Scotch Whisky History
The Haig Dimple whisky is also one of the oldest whisky brands still available in the market considering the foundations of the brand were laid by John Haig in 1824 in Cameronbridge, Scotland.
The Dimple expression itself was introduced in 1893, and in the following years, its export, undertaken by John Haig’s sons, Alicius and Hugh Vietch through their export business, Haig & Haig, made the brand popular in the United States of America. The Dimple blended Scotch whisky continues to be a popular brand in the country, albeit as the Dimple Pinch, a slightly stronger expression exclusively for the United States of America.
Dimple 15 Year Old Alcohol Percentage
The Dimple 15 year old has an alcohol strength of 43% ABV (86 US Proof).
It is the slightly higher placed expression over the Haig Gold, and is described by the company itself as having a much more ‘malty influence’ as compared to other expressions from the house of Haig. This ‘malty influence’ is attributed to the source whiskies from Glenkinche and Linkwood.

Long before David Beckham and Haig Club, there was Dimple Haig. Launched at the end of the 19th century, it became the deluxe, sophisticated brother to the standard Haig & Haig blend, while in the US it has long been known as Dimple Pinch. Whether the name inspired the bottle or vice versa is unclear, but Dimple has always been packaged in a distinctive lozenge-shaped bottle with pinched sides like a collapsed pot still. Of the various expressions over time, the 15-year-old has a caramel sweetness, a touch of spice, some vanilla oak and no discernible smoke.
