The Dalmore // Highlands, Scotland
The Valour was launched in 2013 as a Travel-Retail exclusive. The single malt was aged in three types of barrels: first-fill ex-bourbon from two different distilleries, ex-30 year old Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks, and ex-Port pipes. It is available in liter-sized bottles.

"Barrel influences dominate the nose with aromas like saw dust, incense, and brown sugar. Brandied cherries and amber honey dominate as the sweet flavors. The finish is warming and goes back to sweet spiced notes with a hint of char smoke."
