Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
The First in the Dalmore’s Principle Range, the Dalmore 12 is a great example of a quintessential Highland malt. Spicy fruitcake notes are backed up by rich and indulgent flavours of chocolate and coffee. Aged for 9 years in ex-Bourbon American oak barrels, the liquid is then split, with one half remaining and the other half going into 30 year old ex-Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Rich Mahogany.
Nose: Spicey, citrusy fruitcake and floral vanillas.
Taste: Dried fruit and candied nuts, hints of citrus.
Finish: Orange peel with hints of dark chocolate and bittersweet coffee.
Overall: The use of sherry butts adds length and depth to a very fruity Highland malt full of Christmas cake spice.

Gift

If the person you’re buying for is a fan of Speyside malts, The Dalmore 12 will be a great alternative choice that they are bound to enjoy. This whisky is also a great starting point for those who haven’t delved into any Highland malts yet and are looking for somewhere to start.

RECOMMENDATIONS
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of The Dalmore 12, you could also try Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban or The Macallan Rare Cask.

Connoisseur

Unusually, rather than have their own sherry casks produced to specification, the Dalmore distillery favours ex-solera casks. These casks have been used to age sherry for decades, meaning the wood isn’t as active as a seasoned cask, meaning less of an oak influence during finishing.

DISTILLERY
