Aged in a series of barrelsfirst American oak, then transferred to a former oloroso Sherry cask and finished in used Cabernet Sauvignon barriquesthis Scotch would be an outstanding dessert accompaniment too. Look for dusty cocoa and lots of Sherried dark fruit, like figs and dates, wrapped in caramel and baking tones that linger on the spicy finish.
Whisky Advocate 91
Aged in a mix of American white oak barrels, oloroso casks, and cabernet sauvignon barriques. Sherry, vanilla, caramel, ripe cherries, and sultanas on the nose. The palate yields characteristic Dalmore orange, plus brittle toffee, bitter chocolate, and cherry liqueur. Spicy licorice and soft oak in the finish.
"Aromas of cinnamon, vanilla and red fruits. Tropical fruits, banana toffee and vanilla ice cream on the palate. Finishing notes of orange zest, dark chocolate and crushed spices. Proof: 88" ~ Distillers Notes
DalmoreView all from Dalmore
The Dalmore's heritage dates back to 1263, when an ancestor of the Clan Mackenzie, owners of The Dalmore distillery for over a century, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the grateful King granted the Clan Mackenzie the right to use a 12-point stag, representing a 'Royal', in their coat of arms. This striking icon has since adorned each bottle of The Dalmore, symbolizing The Dalmore distillery's regal legacy. The Dalmore is crafted using a 150 year old artisan process passed down through the generations.
