Description

The Dalmore 12 year old, with its intricate aromas and flavours is recognised as a whisky with character far beyond its age.

The 12 year old was Andrew Mackenzie's original masterpiece and at the time where it was the norm to mature whisky for six years, Andrew Mackenzie demonstrated his pioneering character by being one of the firsts to double the maturation period and his boldness paid off.

Complex yet balanced, the Dalmore 12 year old is the epitome of the Dalmore house style.

Wood Portrait:
Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for it's final flourish where one half remains in the bourbon barrels while the other half is transferred to 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenonenal whisky.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Antique gold.
Nose: Vanilla fudge, thick-cut orange marmalade, sherry and finally a whiff of leather, citrus fruits and aromatic spices.
Palate: Concentrated citrus, oloroso sherry and hints of vanilla pod. Sherry and spice as well as delicate citrus notes.
Finish: Hints of ginger, seville oranges and vanilla. Roasted coffee and chocolate.

Taste Test

Mixed dates: both dry and juicy; fat, rich delivery with a wonderful dovetailing of juicy barley and thick rumbling fruit; lots of toffee on the finish, but gets away with it thanks to the sheer depth to the barley and the busy sherry sub-plot; has changed character of late yet remains under powered and with a shade too much toffee. But such is the quality of the malt in its own right it can overcome any hurdles placed before it to ensure a real mouth-filling rumbustious dram. 40%

A perfect daily dram, this whisky is definitely easy to enjoy - very smooth and mellow and just the right amount of sweetness. The mix of flavours in this Scotch stand out so well and mix beautifully on the pallet.
