Single Malt Scotch Whisky
90 POINTS WHISKY ADVOCATE
Matured initially in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. This gives the whisky its foundation of soft vanilla and honey notes. The whisky is then carefully divided into rare hand-sourced 25 year old sweet Palomino Fino sherry casks and first fill American white oak ex-bourbon casks. Here they are given an extended period of time to mature before they are reunited back together to harmonize in first fill ex-bourbon casks. For its final flourish, the whisky is finessed in Tawny Port pipes from Portugal, creating something truly exceptional.
The 25 showcases the dedication and creativity of Richard Paterson in his pursuit to find incredible casks for The Dalmore. Orange peel, chocolate truffles, liquorice, sweet damsons and sherry-soaked raisins, with a finish of demerara sugar, maple syrup, bitter chocolate, and spiced gingerbread.
