Dalmore 12 Years Old Sherry Cask 70cl 43°

Distillery : The Dalmore / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 24993

The Scottish distillery Dalmore often matures in exceptional casks Oloroso, Amoroso, Mathusalem... Each cask has its own characteristics, flavours and aromas. The Sherry casks give the Dalmore Single Malts a perfect balance and a remarkable complexity.

Richard Paterson, master assembler of the house, presents here a 12 years old Single Malt, initially aged in former American Bourbon barrels, then matured for 18 to 24 months in three casks of a unique Sherry blended by the distillery.

This is a whisky offering more intensity than the classic 12 years old, with twice as much sherry influence!

Established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, this Northern Highlands distillery owns a very old still which neck is cooled by a water stream, which clears the distillate from its heaviest elements.

This might explain its ability to age for a long period (more than 50 years), even if a bottle of that age is extremely rare and pricey. The Dalmore is one of the rare distilleries that used to be managed by a woman, between 1860 and 1866. When the Mackenzie family bought the distillery in 1866, she brought with her the symbol of the clan – a stag head with twelve horns – meaning “royal”, labeled on each bottle released by the distillery. In  1960, the distillery merged with the Whyte & Mackay company, founded by Mackenzie relatives.
