The Dalmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Sherry Cask, which was launched at the beginning of October, is not a replacement for the standard 12 year old Dalmore, but is an addition to the core range. The finish is a combination of American & European casks from 3 different Andalucian cooperages (Tevasa, Vasyma, Paez) which previously held a sherry blend of aged Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry.
The finish was also a year shorter than the regular 12 year old and the alcohol strength is a bit higher. So a few subtle changes, but which can significantly change the taste of a whisky.
AROMA: Caramelised orange, ginger and sultanas, laced with honey
PALATE: Dark chocolate and crushed almonds with a dusting of cinnamon
FINISH: Sweet mangos, panna cotta and lemon sponge cake
