The Dalmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Dalmore Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, golden barley sourced from the rich, coastal soils of the Black Isle. Once the barley has been harvested, it is milled and mashed before being fermented with water drawn from the Cromarty Firth. That water, prior to reaching the firth, travels from Loch Morie through a number of peat bogs and limestone quarries, contributing a slightly mineral and chewy mouthfeel to the whisky.
Once the barley has been fermented, the wash is distilled twice, first through Dalmore Distillery's copper-pot wash stills and then again through its copper-pot spirit stills (the stills date back to 1874). The wash stills have an unusually flat-top, while the spirit stills are equipped with cold water jackets. This unusual equipment — the water jackets rinse cold water near the top of the still — makes it difficult for the lighter elements of the whisky to pass through the still, and ultimately results in a more opulent and rich whisky.
Dalmore Distillery 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for nine years in American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon. Following its initial beautyrest, half of the whisky is double-barreled, or finished, for three years in 30 year-old Matusalem oloroso sherry casks (the remainder matures for an additional three years in the bourbon casks). This dual maturation process gives the whisky an aroma of caramelized oranges, apples, plums and marzipan. Notes of citrus, toffee and cinnamon dominate the palate, and are complemented by sweet undertones of vanilla, coffee and cake. The finish is long and sweet, with hints of apricots, cherries and vanilla.
Dalmore Distillery 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earned a score of 91 points from the Beverage Testing Institute.
