Dalmore Vintage Highland Single Malt Whisky, 2009
An elegant and refined 10 year old single malt matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and finished in casks which previously held oloroso sherry.
It has aromas of crushed almonds, Seville orange marmalade and praline chocolate. On the palate there are notes of Pecan pie, cinnamon and poached fruits. The finishing notes are spicy marzipan, blood orange and fudge cake.
For over 150 years, The Dalmore has set the standard in multi cask maturation. Hand selected casks, from the world's finest bodegas and wineries are expertly curated to create a sumptuous and layered whisky of legendary finesse.
The Dalmore's heritage dates back to 1263, when an ancestor of the Clan Mackenzie, owners of The Dalmore distillery for over a century, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the grateful King granted the Clan Mackenzie the right to use a 12-point stag, representing 'Royal' in their coat of arms. This striking icon has since adorned each bottle of The Dalmore, symbolising the Dalmore distillery's regal legacy.
The Dalmore is crafted using a 150 year old artisan process passed down through the generations. Eight hand beaten copper stills of variable shape and size deliver a full flavoured and complex new spirit, which is then enriched over the years in the finest American white oak ex-bourbon casks and hand selected oloroso sherry butts. Master Distiller Richard Paterson then makes his final selection, harmonising the spirit of the chosen casks in bespoke sherry butts until he decides that the precious contents are ready for bottling.
