The Dalmore 1969 (cask no. 1)

The spirit is initially matured in the great American white oak, ‘Quercus Alba’.

Bedding deep into the pores of the wood, the spirit began to draw its colour and beauty from this majestic cask.

Over 40 long years, the cask gifted soft vanilla and honey notes before the spirit was lovingly re-casked into a ‘small batch’ bourbon barrel for a further three years.

This final movement was all this whisky required to take it to the peak of perfection.

Volume: 70cl ABV: X

The Flavour Profile

The Colour

Amber honey gold with rays of sunlight.

The Nose

Sweet apple, pear and caramelised orange segments, followed by coffee mousse, soft liquorice, nutmeg, rich praline and pineapple

The Taste

Cinnamon, toffee and black cherries with whispers of freshly baked banana bread, sultanas, treacle and nutty toffee

As a rare example of The Dalmore being solely matured in American white oak, I selected this cask as it shows the softer and more gentle side to our whiskies. For me, it is true elegance.
