Intense amber gold with shimmering radiant highlights.
Bold and majestic. The hand of time has moulded and nurtured this noble spirit to reveal a classic array of rare and attractive nuances. Although the gentle wood tones of oak and oloroso play a major part of its formation, the overall contribution has been perfectly balanced. In accordance with its long maturation, other elements such as its close association with the sea and the strong easterly winds from the Cromarty Firth are also reflected in the initial bouquet. The final rewards are the subtle hints of orange peel, honey and roasted almonds.
The first taste makes its full impact as the spirit explodes its rare spectrum of flavours on the tongue to reveal its true identity - full, rich, seductive, well balanced by unobtrusive structure. Each attribute has been harmoniously balanced to enrich the palate. Allowing this aged malt to drift and roll on the tongue further extends this unforgettable journey that continues to unfold.
Time, like its heritage, has crafted this outstanding quality.
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.
