Dalmore 15 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

(0)

Dalmore 15 Year Old is a single malt Scotch whisky from the Highlands region of Scotland. The 15 Year Old Dalmore was launched in 2007, before which the Dalmore 12 Year Old was the only widely available expression from the company.

The Dalmore Distillery is widely known through their logo, a twelve-pointed Royal stag. The distillery and brand is owned by Whyte & Mackay, which is now owned by Emperador Inc., a Philippines based conglomerate.

History of Dalmore Single Malt Whisky

Alexander Matheson established the Dalmore Distillery in 1839, running the facilities for nearly 28 years before he decided to move on to greener pastures. The new owners of the Dalmore distillery belonged to the Mackenzie clan, one of the region’s oldest and revered clans.

The Mackenzie clan were granted permission to use the 12-pointed Royal stag on their crest when the Chief of the Mackenzie clan saved King Alexander III from a stag charging towards him. The new owners of the distillery brought the now-famous Dalmore logo with them, running the company for many years.

The Dalmore Distillery was family owned for many years, until Whyte & Mackay took control of the company in the 1960s. This resulted in a diminished presence for Dalmore in the single malt market, with most of Dalmore’s single malts forming Whyte & Mackay blends. Only the Dalmore 12 Year Old was available in the market for many years,

Making Process of Dalmore 15 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

This Dalmore single malt Scotch whisky is from the Highlands, where the distillery has been located since 1839. The barrels used for maturation at the Dalmore Distillery are always hand-selected by Richard Paterson, the Master Distiller at Dalmore.

The 15 Year Old is matured in American ex-Bourbon barrels for 12 years before it is finished in three different types of Sherry barrels; Matusalem, Amoroso and Apostoles. The rich and heavy Sherry influence, coupled with the quintessential Highland characteristics of the Dalmore help produce a flavourful and aromatic single malt Scotch.

There is an intense depth of sweet fruit and tasty spice brought forth by the extended Sherry maturation. Each barrel influences a different quality of the spirit, and the resulting marriage of the matured spirit in upstanding Sherry barrels really combines everything well.
