Dalmore 12 Year Old
70cl / 40% abv
Dalmore was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, but was owned by the Mackenzie clan for almost a century. The Mackenzie influence can be seen in the clan crest which adorns every bottle produced at Dalmore.
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. Complex, yet balanced, the Dalmore 12 Year Old is the epitome of the Dalmore house style.
Nose: spiced fruitcake, blood orange and chocolate.
Palate: soft oak and grape, milk chocolate with Seville orange rind.
Finish: long and very fruity.
