Dalmore's stunning 18 year old Highland malt is as rich, fruity and spicy as you could ever want from a Dalmore. Kudos to Richard Paterson for creating another veritable chocolate orange of a whisky - a surefire hit, and great for the colder months. It is aged for 14 years in American oak, followed by three years in Matusalem sherry butts, before a final year in sherry butts.
This amber Highland Scotch was aged in former Bourbon and oloroso Sherry casks. The end result is a robust, full-bodied, luscious sip, with plenty of rich, concentrated caramel, toffee, fudge and cocoa. It finishes long and bracing, with clove, cigar wrapper and espresso accents.
Matured in American oak and oloroso sherry casks. The nose is fragrant with honey, vanilla, ginger, orange marmalade, and a hint of smoke. Relatively full-bodied, with flavors of tangy orange, marzipan, sherry, bitter chocolate, then oak. The finish is long, with licorice and citrus fruit.
