An evolution of The Dalmore house style, this 18 year old expression takes on bolder notes becoming a robust and formidable whisky. The Dalmore 18 showcases the result of extended maturation
Since its inception in 1839 by Sir Alexander Matheson, a long line of whisky pioneers have taken the helm at The Dalmore distillery, all with a shared vision to create a single malt unlike any other. The unique distillation at The Dalmore produces a complex new make spirit which can be matured for longer and in a greater variety of casks than any other. Master Distiller Richard Paterson travels the globe to hand-select only the finest casks in which to mature The Dalmore. Building on the foundation of the great men who went before him, he continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in the art of whisky making.

This amber Highland Scotch was aged in former Bourbon and oloroso Sherry casks. The end result is a robust, full-bodied, luscious sip, with plenty of rich, concentrated caramel, toffee, fudge and cocoa. It finishes long and bracing, with clove, cigar wrapper and espresso accents.
