Dalmore Whisky 750 ml
Aged 12 years. Matured in American white oak and oloroso sherry wood. 1263: 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 stage. In recognition of this noble act the grateful king granted the Clan Mackenzie the right to use a 12-point stage, representing a royal, in their coat arms. This striking icon has since adorned each bottle of the Dalmore, symbolising the Dalmore distillery's regal legacy. The Art of the Dalmore: The Dalmore is crafted using a 150 year old artisan process passed down through the generations. Eight hand beaten cooper stills a variable shape and size deliver a full flavoured and complex new spirit, which is then enriched over the years in the finest American white oak ex-bourbon casks and hand selected oloroso sherry butts. Masters Distiller Richard Paterson then makes his final selection, harmonising the spirit of the chosen casks in bespoke sherry butts until he decides that the precious contents are ready for bottling. Tasting Notes: Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being carefully divided. One half continues its maturation in bourbon barrels, the other half is transferred to 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry casks. Complex, yet balanced, the Dalmore 12 year old is the epitome of the Dalmore house style. Aroma: Citrus fruits, chocolate and aromatic spices. Palate: Concentrated citrus, oloroso sherry and hints of vanilla pod. Finish: Roasted coffee and chocolate.
