Dalmore Vintage 2003 70cl 46.9°

Distillery : The Dalmore / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 25232

The Dalmore Vintage 2003 embodies the excellence of a Single Malt aged for 18 years.

It has benefited from a first maturation in American white oak barrels that previously contained Bourbon. It was then transferred to Rivesaltes, Xérès Matusalem and Amoroso casks, as well as ex-Bourbon casks specially selected for this Single Malt.

Each drop of this precious whisky is made with meticulous care and represents the culmination of the selection of the best barrels of a given year.

Limited in quantity, this expression fits with distinction into the "Vintage" collection of the Scottish house.

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.

Nose: honey, soft caramel and vanilla pods.

Palate: honey, maple syrup and spicy black fruits.

Finish: honey, marmalade, sweet spices.
