The Dalmore Distillery is in Alness, a short drive north from Inverness on the firth of Cromarty. The North Coast boasts one of the most beautiful sceneries in all of Scotland and is quickly becoming a world-renowned destination for Scotch lovers and driving enthusiasts alike. Amazingly, this is the first Dalmore we've ever bottled for the shop. We don't see much Dalmore on the open market at all and when we do it's nearly triple the price we'd ever pay. The Dalmore brand gets a bad rap from some of the whisky cognoscenti, thanks to their high prices, low abvs and ubiquitous use of caramel coloring. There's some inexplicable desire to be seen ultra-luxurious, perhaps another Macallan of sorts, but of course, there can only be one - Luxury Highlander! And so Dalmore remains relatively obscure to the broader market and our understanding of the spirit is limited because we rarely get to taste it in its natural cask strength form. Indeed, almost all the Dalmore we get has some sherry or other wine cask finish incorporated in its composition. This, on the other hand, is Dalmore 'Au Naturel.' Aged for just over 13 years in a refill hogshead and bottled, as all our single casks are, at cask strength without chill filtration or additives of any kind. The whisky is classically highland with wisps of vanilla, creamy orchard fruit, some bright refreshing maltiness and a twinge of salty sea air. This cask includes one tiny drop of 13 yo Teaninich to get us in the Blended Malt category.
