A hearty, world-famous single malt, and this time it arrives in a splendid pedestal presentation box. This is a sure-fire way to treat a Dalmore fan, the ever-elegant Dalmore eye for style present more than ever here. Expect to find a great hint of sherry wood maturation in this classic dram. Dalmore 12 Year Old is 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.A former winner of The Whisky Shop Malt of the Year.
The nose offers sweet malt, thick cut orange marmalade, sherry and a hint of leather. It’s full-bodied, with sweetening sherry in the mouth, along with spice and balance, delicate, citrus notes. The finish is as long as your arm, with spice, ginger, lingering Seville oranges and even a suggestion of vanilla.
