Situated at Alness, further on the North East coast, The Dalmore is a very different beast from the malts that are produced at nearby distilleries such as Glenmorangie and Balblair. Rich, orangey and liqueur-like, Dalmores are perfect for a winter fireside dram. The 12 year old is no exception, sherried, spicy and marmaladey, it is an ideal way to introduce yourself to one of the world’s great distilleries.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Heavy and intense. Molasses, sticky toffee pudding, treacle, marmalade, overripe oranges.
Palate: A little lighter than you might expect, given the nose. Toffee and orange peel. Rich and rounded with a peaty undertow.
