Matured initially for fourteen years in American White Oak ex bourbon casks, the whisky is then transferred to 30 year old Matusalem Oloroso sherry wood for a further four years. Bottled at 43% ABV, The Dalmore 18 year old offers a provocative and intense taste experience with an enduring aftertaste of cinnamon and nutmeg.
The Dalmore's heritage dates back to 1263, when the ancestor of the Clan Mackenzie, owners of the Dalmore Distillery for over a century, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the grateful King granted the Clan Mackenzie the right to use a 12 point stag, representing a Royal, in their coat of arms. This striking icon has adorned each bottle of Dalmore ever since, symbolising the distillerys regal legacy.
