Proof66 Notes

The Dalmore Gran Reserva single malt scotch is meant to replace and appeal to cigar smokers with its spicy characteristics. It is a blend of scotches "typically" aged 10 to 15 years but does not carry an age statement. The whisky is influenced by an Oloroso sherry.

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.

Chocolate and cherries up front, followed by hints of orange, and finishing off with a light smoke and coffee flavor. Smooth and sweet, this one is right up my alley. Would probably pair well with tobacco.
