The Dalmore 21 Year Old is masterpiece that's been years in the making to attain its full potential. 21 years is a noted coming of age number, and with The Dalmore 21 Year Old it's a true coming-of-age single malt.
Within the Dalmore team it has been called the pinnacle of their Principal Collection because it is the very epitome of whisky-making artistry, and the perfect prelude to the Dalmore range of rare and aged single malts. It is made with meticulous care and craft. An absolute labour of love created by a talented team of whisky makers who dedicate their artistry to the creation of handcrafted single malt whisky masterpieces. It's exquisitely casked and exceptionally enjoyable.
Its extra years of ageing are enfolded in fragrant sherry oak that gives it a higher strength of 43.8%. They also imbue it with a sumptuously subtle complexity of flavour and aroma.
On the nose, savour the citrus sweetness of Sanguinello blood oranges from Seville, evolving into rich notes of bitter dark chocolate and roasted Colombian coffee and the warm scent of Madagascar vanilla pods.
On the palate, there's sweet liquorice, black forest fruits, roast walnuts and hints of Christmas cake marzipan.
The lingering finish provides layers of peach, ginseng, pear tarte tatin and Sanguinello blood orange.
This perfect spirit has been composed in a symphony of idiosyncratic copper stills and hand finished in exquisite sherry wood of rare 30 year-old Matusalem Oloroso casks, that are exclusive to The Dalmore. Following the spirits decades-long sleep, it is brought into the shining light, ready to release its antique qualities into the present with every precious drop. It's spectrum of charm, elegance and refinement awaits every mouthful. A truly timeless single malt whisky icon!
