Dalmore 18 year old is another fantastic creation from Richard Paterson, the Dalmore whisky Master Blender. This whisky is matured initially for fourteen years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, then transferred to 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry wood for a further four years. A great dram in the winter months, but then again, who couldn't enjoy it all year round?!
Nose: Fruity and spicy with notes of vanilla, orange zest and potpourri, marmalade and sweet milk chocolate. A touch of leather and sultana.
Palate: A delicious fireside dram with notes of chocolate raisins, juicy citrus, stewed fruits, old sherry and pepper.
Finish: A long, fruity finish ending on almond, buttery toffee apples and cocoa.
