Popular at Whisky Fringe, although this uses a range of casks this is very much in the rich, sherried style we've come to associate with Dalmore with plums and chocolate on the nose and spice, coffee and Christmas cask on the palate.
Background from Dalmore
Over the course of our history The Dalmore’s remarkable spirit has been filled to French wine barriques, Madeira drums, sherry butts from Jerez, Sicilian Marsala barrels, port pipes from the Douro and bourbon barrels from Kentucky.
Each of these casks has now been united to create an exceptional malt where the individual characteristics of each work together to form a rich, deep spirit. This release commemorates the Mackenzie Clan ancestor’s heroic act in saving King Alexander in 1263.
