Dalmore "Black Isle" Highland Malt 1 Ltr

Home › Products › Spirits and Liqueurs › Dalmore "Black Isle" Highland Malt 1 Ltr
Named after the fertile agricultural area across the Cromarty Firth from Dalmore distillery, The Black Isle expression differs from the standard 12-year-old in that it contains a higher percentage of whisky matured in European Oak. Indeed, Master Blender Richard Paterson uses a 50/50 balance of American Oak and European Oak casks to achieve this effect. The cask mix for the ?standard? 12-year-old Dalmore is closer to 80 per cent American. Rich and Sherried on the nose, with honey and stewed fruits. Quite full bodied, warming and malty in the mouth, with distinctive notes of spice and Sherry. Delightfully lingering in the finish; well balanced, with the Sherry and Bourbon notes working in perfect harmony. An altogether superior whisky to the very good ?standard? Dalmore. More complex, sophisticated and rounded. The extra Sherry influence does this spirit a power of good.
