This elegant and rich 12 Year Old Highland Single Malt is initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks under the watchful eye of Dalmore's Master Distiller, Richard Paterson. This is the perfect start to the whisky's maturation journey as it develops Dalmore's house style of chocolate, orange and spice. This Single Malt is then fully finished in casks having held a very unique sherry, created especially for The Dalmore, a blend of classic and aged oloroso and rich and sweet Pedro Ximenez, formulated to provide the perfect enhancement to Dalmore's house style. The result is a stunning and elegant Dalmore single malt, bursting with sweet fruit and decadent spice. Great Scotch whisky gift for someone special or corporate gift.

Dalmore might just be the most legendary distillery in the world, when it comes to creating stunning whisky with real provenance. Even the distillery itself looks incredible, as it overlooks the Cromarty Firth - an estuary from whose banks rise impressive slopes specked with green thicket and wooded copse.
The classic 12 and 15 year old have long been a mainstay for lovers of rich highland whisky, and the master blender, Richard Paterson, is one of the industry’s best loved celebrities. As well as working at Dalmore, Richard blends for Isle of Jura as well as Whyte and Mackay. Not one to shy from experimentation, he makes use of varying barley strains and age old vintages, which he blends with all the talent of a modern day alchemist.
Dalmore was founded by Alexander Matheson in 1839 and now stands as Whyte and Mackay’s largest distillery as well as being the flagship for the brand. With four pairs of stills, Dalmore has a capacity of 4.2 million litres per annum and operates at near capacity, but still retains its quality and character.
