The Dalmore 12YO - 40% - 700ml
PRODUCT TYPE: Whisky
The Dalmore have been producing whisky since the 1839. It wasn't until the new owners in 1867 did they get their iconic 12 pointed Royal Stag emblem. The distillery was unfortunately destroyed by a mine in the 1920s, before being rebuilt. Under the stewardship of Master Distiller David Paterson this whisky has enjoyed a cult following. David has been in the industry for over 50 years and considered a legend when it comes to cask maturation. This 12 year old has spent 9 years in Ex Bourbon casks before half of it is left to age in ex-oloroso casks for another 3 years. Then it is remarried togther before bottling. The aroma has citrus fruits, chocolate and aromatic spices. The palate has oranges, dried fruirs and hints of vanilla. Lovely finish of roasted coffee and dark chocolate.
