Description

Country: Scotland
Region: Highland
70cl/44%
Body: Medium to full

A welcome return from a much revered single malt whisky – and a fine dram whether you drink it with its intended purpose in mind or not. This whisky is rich and inviting with flavours of tropical fruits, banana toffee, cinnamon spice and red fruits.

Bottled at 44% alcohol by volume, the body, structure and character of this extraordinary expression is the perfect complement to a fine Cuban cigar, in particular the Partagas Series P No.2.

Wood Portrait:
Matured initially in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, it is then finessed in premier cru Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques.

Awards
The Dalmore Cigar Malt won a Silver Award at the International Spirits Challenge 2014 in the Distillers Single Malt 12 Years and Under category and also a Silver Award at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014 in the Scotch Single Malt – Highland category.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Caramel, shortbread, biscuits, coffee and chocolates with an aroma of cinnamon, vanilla and red fruits.
Palate: Yet more toffee, caramel edging towards the burnt cinder-toffee side of things. Flamed orange-zest, vanilla ice cream and perfectly integrated sherry.
Finish: Reasonably simple, Christingles (orange Zest and clove with a touch of cinnamon), more mid-palate than palate-coating before finally, crushed spices.
Overall: Definitely meets the criteria of pairing with a ‘BIG’ cigar.

Taste Test

One assumes this off key sugarfest is for the cigar that explodes in your face....44%

A very welcome return for the Dalmore Cigar Malt which was discontinued in 2009 and is now back by very popular demand. This is by far one of my favourite single malts to enjoy with or without a cigar, although the latter does make for a superbly delicious pairing! This well balanced scotch whisky is mouth-wateringly complex with notes of caramel, chocolate and orange peel. A smooth and warming malt with a long zesty finish and subtle hints of spice, perfect for enjoying on a warm summers evening with a fine Habanos (my favourite has been a Trinidad Reyes). This has quite quickly become my Dalmore of choice (and I love Dalmore!)
