The Dalmore 12yo Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Highland Whisky
Age: 12 year old Whisky
The Dalmore spirit benefits from longer than typical maturation - 12 years, instead of the more regular 10. Judicious selection and the precise balance of American white oak and Oloroso sherry wood delivers the most vibrant expression - robust yet elegant, with an after taste of brilliant complexity.
Deep golden mahogany in colour with orange, marmalade and aromatic spice on the nose. Elegant and rich on the palate with intense citrus and hints of sweet vanilla pod to finish, enhanced by increased sherry wood for an after taste of great complexity.

Nose: A warm coffee house in Seattle; roasting beans, the oily nuttiness in a fine espresso, there are little notes of malt and cereal and butter from the pastry counter with rich orange from the fruit bowl on the counter.
Palate: Notes of Seville marmalade and triple sec with winter spices and fruitcake. Zesty cocoa and milk chocolate.
Finish: Medium, oranges.
