Dalmore 40 Year Old
70cl / 42% abv
Distilled at the Dalmore distillery, this Highland single malt was matured for more than three decades in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks for seven years, with a final flourish in first-fill American white oak bourbon barrels. Bottled in 2017 at a strength of 42% abv and presented in a beautiful decanter-style bottle.
Nose: rich coffee and sweet sultanas, with dates and orange marmalade.
Palate: gingerbread dripping with molasses and honey-dipped brioche buns.
Finish: blood orange and Bramley apples with liquorice and coconut.
