Rich, deep, golden mahogany. Intense and firm. Well structured with silky smooth malty tones; a hint of Oloroso sherry lingers in the background. It shows great finesse, extolling fragrances of orange, marmalade and spiced notes. Good attack on the mouth, more elegance than muscle. The aged Matusalem, Apostoles & Amoroso Oloroso butts smooth its rich, fleshy body with great harmony.
Type: Single Malt Whisky
Region: Alness, Highland, Scotland
Goes with: Neat or over ice
The Dalmore 15 year old was first launched in 2007. Matured in Matusalem, Apostoles and Amoroso Sherry casks, it proffers all those winter spice, orange zest and chocolate notes characteristic of Dalmore.
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.
