DALMORE 12 year old, 40%

Region: Highlands
Age: 12 Years
ABV: 40%

Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being carefully divided. One half continues its maturation in bourbon barrels, the other half is transferred to 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry casks. Complex, yet balanced, The Dalmore 12 year old is the epitome of the Dalmore house style.

 

From Jim Murray's Whisky Bible: 90 points
Nose: 22/25 mixed dates: both dry and juicy;
Taste: 23/25 fat, rich delivery with a wonderul dovetailing of juicy barley and thick, rumbling fruit;
Finish: 22.5/25 lots of toffee on the finish, but gets away with it thanks to the sheer depth  of the barley and the busy sherry sub-lot;
Balance: 22.5/25 has changed character of late yet remains underpowered and with a shade too much toffee. But such is the quality of the malt in its own right it can overcome any hurdles placed before it to ensure a real mouth-filling, rumbustious dram
