Dalmore Port Wood Reserve 70cl 46.5°

Distillery : The Dalmore / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 23598

The Dalmore Port Wood Reserve Single Malt is the result of a special selection of the distillery's cellars.

Aged initially in American oak barrels that had previously contained Bourbon, the Dalmore whisky then enjoyed a maturation of equal parts, half in American white oak barrels and the other half in Tawny Port casks from vineyard of W & J Graham in Portugal.

The whole was then married with balance to harmonise the flavours before bottling at 46.5°.

The result is a whisky that proudly displays the character and complexity of the signature The Dalmore with rich notes brought by the Porto.

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: sweet red berries, Seville oranges, plums and sticky toffee pudding.

Palate:
nectarines, caramel cream, roasted chestnuts and coffee.
