Proof66 Notes

The Dalmore 15yr single malt scotch is aged whisky using a variety of Matusalem, Apostoles, and Amoroso sherry butts along with traditional oak. The scotch is said to be "potent and robust."

The distillery itself was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson. It lies near the Averon River, which is also the water it uses for its scotch. It was later sold to the Mackenzie family in 1886, which gives rise to the luceo non uro motto from the family translating as "I shine, not burn." The distillery is currently owned by Whyte & Mackay. The Dalmore Distillery has the emblem of the stag--an antlered head--which comes from a legend from 1263 when the ancestors of the founders saved King Alexander III from being gored by a stag during a hunt; he rewarded them by allowing them to use the stag head on their coat of arms. The Dalmore brand was originally owned by Whyte & Mackay (and in turn Diageo) but was sold to Emperador Distillers of the Philippines in 2014.

Strong walnut, sweet berries. Sits long and warm in the belly.

4.45/5, oh yea I like this style! Nose has some yummy oranges and citrus. Taste starts with a zesty attack giving way gently to the sherry which would be just lovely if that's where it ended... But it doesn't! A very tasty light nutty flavors macadamia nuts (what!?!) rear there head. That it something I find very cool. To go from one distinctly nice flavor into another completely different nice flavor the way this did really impressed me. Do try!
