Description

The legend behind this whisky dates back to 1263, when a member of the Mackenzie clan saved King Alexander III from a charging stag. This heroic act is captured in a painting that hangs in Edinburgh’s national gallery. To this day, the Stag still adorns each and every bottle of The Dalmore.

To celebrate the pioneering and innovative values of the Mackenzie Clan, master distiller Richard Paterson has painstakingly created the only single malt in the world to unite a six cask finish for one outstanding achievement.

Wood Portrait:
Spirits matured in ex-bourbon casks, Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, Madeira barrels, Marsala casks, Port pipes and Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques are combined in perfect harmony to create a uniquely complex, yet smooth single malt.

This is the embodiment of brave creativity and a lifetime's experience.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Chocolate and nuts, both flesh and shells, toffee, touches of spiced raisin and vanilla with an aroma of fresh flowers, red berry fruits and passion fruit.
Palate: Medium rounded. Measured sugary sweetness to start, with zesty orange and vanilla backed up by sweet raisins, almonds, raspberry. Liqueurs emerge; Gran Marnier, kirsch and Frangelico.
Finish: Spicy oak, sweet cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, liquorice root and the claret makes a last minute appearance.

Taste Test

Starts brightly with all kinds of barley sugar, fruit and decent age and oak combinations, plus some excellent spice prickle. So far, so good...and obviously thoughtfully and complexly structured, But then vanishes without a trace on finish. 40%

An exceptionally smooth whisky with beautiful complex flavours. This is suitable for people who appreciate a high quality smooth scotch, and who appreciate taste rather than just the alcohol. An excellent single malt, for those special evenings you want to lay back and relax by the fireplace.
