For the Dalmore Gran Reserva the Master Distiller selects the most intense whiskies, typically aged from 10 to 15 years, drawn exclusively from first fill oaken casks. The assembly combines whiskies from both Oloroso sherry butts and Bourbon barrels in an approximate two thirds to one.  The Dalmore Distillery is known for 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 and is 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 Gran Reserve is a great single malt scotch. 

The Dalmore Gran Reserva Tasting Notes:  The scent is thin like a tequila, not sweet but a bit chocolaty, dry, light, light in peat and smooth.  The water opens up the peat but it’s a thin smooth single malt.
