A true star among the crowd in the single-malt universe. This 18-year beauty, aged primarily in ex-bourbon casks, but where this flips the script is that it spends 4 years in 30-year Methusalem Oloroso Sherry casks - thus bringing you a complex array of fruit and spice. With decadent supporting notes of cocoa powder and a freshly made Cappuccino you’ll find a lot to love here. A long balanced finish with hints of Fuji apple skin, nutmeg and caramel roll through the credits.
The Dalmore Distillery has been producing exceptional single malt whisky since 1839 and for almost a century was owned by the Clan Mackenzie. The clan's defining influence on the distillery is still evident to this day, with the iconic royal stag's antlers - taken from the Mackenzie family crest - adorning each and every bottle of The Dalmore. Their claim to fame lies in the location of the distillery, which is perfectly situated to take advantage of a feast of natural resources in the Scottish Highlands - from the waters of Loch Morie, found high in the hills overlooking the distillery, to the golden barley of the rich coastal soils of the Black Isle. Today, pedigreed Master Distiller Richard Paterson is at the helm, and with his unique distilling philosophies and vast regiment of European wine cask maturation, has surged The Dalmore onto center stage as one of Scotland's premier distilleries.
