Rich, deep, golden mahogany.
Intense and firm. Well structured with silky smooth malty tones - a hint of Oloroso sherry lingers in the background. It shows great finesse, extolling fragrances of orange, marmalade and spiced notes.
Good attack on the mouth, more elegance than muscle. The aged Oloroso butts smooth its rich, fleshy body with great harmony. Almost a concentrated citric mouth-feel captivates and tantalises the middle part of your tongue. An aftertaste of great abundance rewards the palate. A Highland malt of great distinction.
The name of Dalmore is synonymous with perfection in whisky-making.
For over 160 years, the distillery has produced malts of great character and distinction. The Dalmore Single Highland Malt Whisky Collection has won numerous, prestigious awards and is recognised as being one of the finest distilleries in the world.
The malts which make up this collection, the twelve years old, the twenty-one years old and the cigar malt have been maturing under the careful eye and expertise of Scottie and his colleagues at the Dalmore distillery. Each is matured in a wooden cask selected from a choice which includes sherry wood and American white oak which, along with the years and the climate, contributes to the flavour of each malt.
From Norse and Gaelic, Dalmore means "the big meadowland" referring to the rich and fertile Black Isle, on the opposite shore of the Cromarty Firth from the distillery. The pure waters of the River Alness are used to produce The Dalmore, producing some of Scotland's very finest Single Highland Malt whiskies. Each of these three exceptional malts has its own unique character.
