Dalmore 12 Year
The Dalmore // Highlands, Scotland
The whisky is aged for 9 years in ex-bourbon american oak before being split; half ages for the three remaining years in ex-Sherry butts and the other half remains in the ex-bourbon casks. The 12 year is a benchmark of the style of whisky Dalmore sells: fruit forward, plush, sweet, and rich.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"There are a fair amount of layers to this 12 year old whisky starting with the aroma: dark honey, cereal, citrus, and vanilla. The sherry really comes on the scene when you taste the whisky with cinnamon, dried fruits, and bitter chocolate. The finish is pleasant and of decent length. In short, for the price, it's a solid choice."
