In a Nutshell
An rich palate of marmalade, citrus & vanilla pod from maturation in Bourbon & Oloroso casks.
Deep, golden mahogany in colour with orange, marmalade and aromatic spice on the nose. Elegant and rich on the palate, concentrated citrus with hints of sweet vanilla pod.
This was Andrew Mackenzie’s original masterpiece and stood apart from the norm of the day. At a time when it was standard practise to mature whisky for no more than 6 years, Andrew Mackenzie demonstrated his pioneering character by doubling the maturation period. His boldness truly paid off, The Dalmore 12 year old still stands apart as an exceptional whisky today, as it did then. Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for its final flourish. One half remains in the bourbon barrels, while the other is transferred to exclusive 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenomenal whisky.
The Dalmore distillery was established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, when descendants of the Mackenzie Clan took over the ownership of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, they proudly added their emblem of the 12-pointed Royal Stag on the bottle.
