The epitome of a great Highland Malt. Rich, smooth and complex, Dalmore 18 has all the hallmarks of this great distillery, dark fruit, spice, incredible length and a persistent lengthy finish. Almost Cognac like in character, this is aged for 14 years in American white oak and then 4 years in 30 year old Matusalem Oloroso Sherry casks for a luxurious finish.
Nose:All grapey, cognac like leading onto notes of bitter orange, dark chocolate, aromatic spices (clove and cinnamon), toasted vanillin oak, hints of old leather, dates, brazil nuts and ginger mocha.
Palate:Sticky dates, baked ripe figs in dark honey, spicy clove and nutmeg, candied orange, bitter chocolate truffles, quite a thick and grapey mouthfeel.
Finish: Thick cut seville dark marmalade on cinnamon toast, bitter espresso coffee grinds, charred oak, stem ginger and late aromatic spices.
