With their signature flat top wash stills, cold water jacket spirit stills and bespoke oak cask maturation, Dalmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky stakes its claim as one of the best of the Highland region. Dalmore 15 years aged is matured in bespoke Matusalem, Apostoles and Amoroso sherry casks from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty in the Highlands, the distillery is sited near Loch Morie and the coast of the Black Isle. According to Dalmore, being elevated at sea level is critically important to the maturation of their scotch. Many single malts gain much of their character from a salty ocean water air.
The Dalmore 15 Flavor & Review
With a light scent of smoke and peat, and a sweet fruity aroma, there are also scents of nectar, honey, grain and malt. With a rich oak and charcoal, the full flavored Dalmore 15 year single malt is sweet, and very smooth with subtle warmth. The Dalmore 15 is gentle with a perfectly light touch of peat smoke. With flavors of oak, honey, fruit, pineapple, pear, citrus and maple, this complex single malt has an excellent finish and aftertaste with phenomenal character. The only problem with Dalmore 15 is that one is not enough! The Dalmore 15 is not only one of the best single malts from the Highlands; Dalmore 15 is one of the best single malts in all of Scotland. This whisky is a lock for our top 10 single malts in the world. We highly recommend the Dalmore 15 years aged single Highland malt scotch whiskey.
