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.

    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.
