A unique Single Malt of the Port Wood series of Dalmore, one of the old-established distilleries in Scotland. It matured first in American white oak barrels. Half of the barrels were then ripened in Tawny Port Pipes, a particularly mild, creamy port. This gives this single malt intense fruit notes of red berry compote, wrapped in ginger and citrus flavors and a hint of toffee.

Description

Dalmore Port Wood Reserve – Single Malt

The Dalmore Port Wood Reserve is a unique Single Malt of the Port Wood series of Dalmore, one of the old-established distilleries in Scotland. It first matured in American white oak barrels. But then half of the barrels were finished in special port wine casks from the Duoro valley in Portugal. This port wine distillery is wellknown for their particularly mild and creamy port. Master Blender Richard Paterson from Dalmore chose also quite old casks from the 70th and 80th, based on his long-term experience and good relationship with this cask supplier.

These Tawny Port Pipes give the Dalmore Port Wood Reserve intense fruit notes of red berry compote, wrapped in ginger and citrus flavors and a hint of toffee. On the tongue unfolds a full, deep bouquet of complex notes of candy cake, blood orange and caramel. Although it is also accompanied by spicy gingerbread and a breeze of tart coffee, the taste remains wonderfully round and soft. In the warming finish you will feel the hints of good old Tawny Port for a long time.

There is no age specified on the bottle, which is quite surprising, because the maturing period in oak is already about 14 years. Another 2-3 years of finishing in the port pipes is also a very generous add, which gives this single malt a great complexity and deepth. A very special dram for a special occasion!

    If you like non-smokey whisky with a deep character, this is the one for you! I love these intense flavours of cherries and red wine, with the background of spicy oak notes. My desert whisky.
