Situated along the banks of Cromarty Firth in the Highlands region of Scotland, The Dalmore Distillery was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, who had earned his fortune illegally importing opium from the Far East. In 1886, Matheson sold Dalmore to Clan MacKenzie, whose century-long stewardship and defining influence over the distillery is still evident today — the 12-point stag adorned on every bottle of Dalmore Whisky is derived from Clan MacKenzie's coat of arms.

The Dalmore 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 to a slightly mineral and chewy mouthfeel to the whisky.

Once the barley has been fermented, the wash is distilled twice, first through Dalmore'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 beauty rest, 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.

The Dalmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky earned a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earned a score of 91 points from the Beverage Testing Institute. This gift set comes with a pair of stemmed glasses branded with The Dalmore Royal Stag logo.
