Sourced as far back at 1900, this royal bottling is matured in a melange of Oloroso and Madeira butts, vintage bourbon barrels and Cabernet Sauvignon barriques from Bordeaux. The result is a complex array of red fruits, roasted nuts, rich toffee and vanilla, with waves of barrel spice flavors that evolve with every sip. An impressive display of the complexities that oak brings to the world of whisky - and worth every penny!
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.
