The Dalmore 12 Year Old is a distinctive and esteemed single malt Scotch Whisky, as bold as the steed emblazoned on the bottle. The Dalmore is a highly respected dram of distinction, history and pedigree; the product of a small and dedicated team of local stillmen with a rich family lineage connected to the production of Dalmore's Scotch Whiskies. Shaped by time, water and weather, The Dalmore 12 gratefully rewards its loyal admirers with a unique, full taste that perfectly reflects its origins.
Adhering to the legend of The Dalmore, this offering projects a robust, elegant and courageous palate, reminiscent of the courage shown by the founding Mackenzie family member when he risked his own life to save Scotland's then ruler, from a charging stag. Aged for longer than the typical 10 years in American oak and sherry barrels, this single malt distinctly benefits from this time-honouring approach.
