Dalmore 25 Year Old description

The Dalmore 25 year old forms part of The Dalmore Principal Collection and only 3000 bottles are available globally each year.

During a quarter century of patient aging, this whisky passes through a range of cask types, creating wonderful depth and complexity of flavour. Initially matured in American white oak barrels, the whisky is then transferred for a further aging period in a combination of Palomino Fino sherry butts and first-fill Bourbon barrels. Each batch is then mixed and rested, or “married” in Bourbon barrels before being transferred into Tawny Port casks, known as “pipes”, from Portugal for a final, delicate finishing period.

Cigar connoisseur ‘Patrick S’ writes in Stogieguys.com: “I can see why this might be billed as a ‘Cigar Malt’ as it does indeed pair well with a fine cigar. It also features more flavours (wood, earth, pepper, chocolate, toffee, etc…) in common with cigars than any whisky I’ve ever tasted. And it pairs with a wide range of cigars, from oily maduros to spicy Nicaraguans to subtle Cameroon-wrapped Dominicans”. Another cigar aficionado, ‘Denis’, author of the blog Cigarinspector.com, agrees: “An Oliva Serie G Maduro goes well with the malt owing to its rich, dark chocolate flavour and aroma which so nicely complement the whisky. Other notes include coffee and toasted nuts. With a Nicaraguan filler and a Cameroon wrapper, this cigar has a medium-full body, but the spiciness of the Dalmore helps it to assert itself. “And if you have access to Cuban cigars, treat yourself to a Montecristo Edmundo. Alone, this cigar slightly lacks evolution in my opinion and the Dalmore gives it a good boost in this department”. Well, here in the U.K. we do have access to Cuban cigars. Pour yourself a large dram of Dalmore 25 years old and “Pass the Partagas”

Bright amber with burnished copper lights. A reserved nose to start, but complex: tobacco, hard toffee, dry fruitcake. Opens to more tobacco, fruit pastilles and a hint of chocolate. A rich and unctuous texture and a densely sweet taste, drying , with traces of treacle toffee, dark chocolate and tobacco. More fruity with water.

Knowledge Bar

The first time you enter the stillhouse at Dalmore distillery, you will undoubtedly be surprised by the stills. The wash stills all have flat-tops, rather than the elegant curved "swan neck" normally seen where the neck of the still joins the lyne arm leading to the condenser.The spirit stills are even more unusual - with a "water jacket" wrapped around the neck of the still. This increases condensation within the neck of the still, creating more reflux and, so the theory goes, a more refined spirit character.
