The Dalmore 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 21 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
Dalmore has produced whisky on the north shore of the Cromarty firth since 1839. While many distilleries favor bespoke casks, created specifically to mature whisky, Dalmore sources sherry butts and wine barriques direct from producers. It’s a policy that has to seem the distillery become a leader in whisky blending and finishing.
The 2022-release of The Dalmore 21 Year Old was initially matured in American oak casks and finished in first-fill Matusalem oloroso sherry butts from Gonzalez Byass, creating layers of rich fruit and warm spices throughout the palate.
A superb and complex bouquet with aromas of old leather, palm oil, and cigar tobacco with deeper layers of spice, caraway seed, black pepper, dry malt and oak. The palate entry is buttery, medium-bodied and stunningly toffee-like; at midpalate the flavor goes mildly citrusy, creamy and bittersweet. Finishes with flavors of barley and maple
