Dalmore 12 , with its intricate aromas and flavours, is recognized as a whisky with character far beyond its age. This was Andrew Mackenzie’s original masterpiece and stood apart from the norm of the day. At a time when it was standard practise to mature whisky for no more than 6 years, he demonstrated his pioneering character by doubling the maturation period. His boldness truly paid off, The Dalmore 12 year old still stands apart as an exceptional whisky today, as it did then.

Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for its final flourish. One half remains in the bourbon barrels, while the other is transferred to exclusive 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenomenal whisky.

Tasting Notes

Nose: A warm coffee house in Seattle; roasting beans and the oily nuttiness in a fine espresso. There are little notes of malt and cereal and butter from the pastry counter with rich orange from the fruit bowl on the counter.

Palate: Notes of Seville marmalade and triple sec with winter spices and fruitcake. Zesty cocoa and milk chocolate.

Finish: Medium length with orange notes.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bushmills 10

Quote 1  “An excellent 12yr old whisky, richer and tastier than most 12yr olds I’ve tried. Besides, I’ve tried 40+ (I know a beginner in a lot of eyes 😂). I find it sits somewhere between a Dalmour 12 and the 16. If your into sweet and non smoky or peated whiskies, this is for you.”

Quote 2  I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, however to leave a review without trying the whisky is nothing short of outright stupidity and to compare it to a supermarkets own brand is ludicrous. To those who have purchased and don’t like it I respect that at least you gave it a go. Whisky’s complex and diverse and one mans pleasure is another mans poison. I like this one, pleasant and easy to drink, in my opinion, 5 stars, great value for money.”

Quote 3  Velvety goodness. Smooth and leathery with a hint of smoke. I’d prefer this over others in its range. Also, since when is 12 years considered “young”? Fantastically balanced with a great finish.”

    Incredible toffy flavours for the first nip and a very pronounced gentle smoke after taste. With every sip unlocking new and exciting tastes and aromatic experiences the Dalmore 12 belongs on everyone’s drinking list.
