This 40 year old Highland single malt began its life at The Dalmore distillery in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being transferred to 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts. After seven years in these rare casks, the liquid was given its final flourish in first-fill American white oak bourbon casks prior to bottling in 2017.
Packaged in an impressive wooden and mirrored inlay gatefold box with certificate of authenticity and a sliding tray containing a bespoke business card holder.
For well over a century a variety of fine Dalmore single malts have been crafted by a small band of local stillmen. In particular, on 21st March 1966, Col. H. A. C. Mackenzie distilled and filled to cask what has now become the Dalmore 40 Year Old masterpiece.
Producer's Tasting Notes:
Colour: Deep aged mahogany and flashes of cedar wood.
Nose: An aromatic symphony of thick chunky orange peel marmalade and Christmas pudding. Citrus, marzipan, spicy cinnamon with hints of raisins and caramel figs. Unobtrusive wood notes linger softly in the background.
Taste: This distinguished malt must be held long in the mouth. Bold and majestic flavours of thick toffee and dark chocolate. Orange peel and crushed almonds follow closely behind.
Both American White oak and Gonzalez Byass oloroso sherry butts have made their own inimitable contribution.
