Dalmore 15 Years Old 70cl 40°
The Dalmore distillery carefully monitored every detail influencing the whisky maturation in order to craft a perfectly structured, rich and appealing expression: time, cask types and cask sizes, storage conditions. The result lived up to the expectations of the distillery.
This Dalmore release aged for 12 years in American white oak Bourbon barrels before being dispatched in three different Sherry casks - Matusalem, Apostoles and Amoroso - specifically selected from Jerez de la Frontera warehouses, and left to age another three years. This Dalmore is then combined in a Sherry cask standing vertically and infuse its flavours and aromas.
The fragrance of the Sherry casks brings perfect harmony between the spirit, the wood and the maturity. As such, this Single Malt is of rare elegance and standalone aromatic richness and balance.

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.
