Dalmore Vintage 2008 70cl 46°
The Dalmore Vintage 2008 is the eighth version of the distillery's Small Batches series whose purpose is to discover the characteristics of unique maturations on the aromatic profile of a whisky.
This new expression from Dalmore began its journey in the best Bourbon casks of first filling, before being transferred for a final blooming in Madeira barrels. This maturation of 10 years makes it possible to obtain an exceptional Single Malt whisky.
Perfectly suited to the character of The Dalmore, the generous influence of the wood modeled by the Madeira makes a fresh and gourmet whisky.
|Maturation||Bourbon & Madeira Wine|
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.
