Dalmore Cigar Malt Single Malt Whisky

, ,

Dalmore Cigar Malt Single Malt Whisky is part of The Dalmore Principal Collection, which perfectly showcases Master Distiller, Richard Paterson’s skills and expertise in cask curation.

Today, The Dalmore distillery has ten stone warehouses and eight pot-stills, several which date back to the late 1800s. Much of the distillery burned down during World War I while occupied by the U.S. Navy, but production resumed in 1922. The production process is meticulous and includes double distillations in copper pot-stills and aging in white oak and sherry wood casks.

Dalmore Cigar Malt Single Malt Whisky is a wonderful blend of three different oak types of 10-15 year old whiskies. White American oak, 30 year old Matusalem Olorosso Sherry casks and Premier Cru Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques. The final blend has an enveloping aroma and flavour of the finest hand-made cigars; rich and smoky and extremely long lasting.

Dalmore Cigar Malt Single Malt Whisky is part of The Principle Collection from The Dalmore.

The Dalmore’s heritage dates back to 1263. It was in this year that Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the King granted the Mackenzie Clan the right to use the 12 pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms. When descendants of the Clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, the Royal Stag became the recognisable icon that proudly adorns each bottle of The Dalmore today; an emblem which encapsulates a rich past whilst also embodying a promise that The Dalmore will remain at the pinnacle of single malt.

The Dalmore continue an age old heritage that treasures the sanctity of the cask. Their precious spirit is finessed in exceptional casks, hand selected by Master Distiller, Richard Paterson and sourced from the world’s finest bodegas and exclusive wineries. The Dalmore house style derives from a close and trusted relationship that was forged with sherry house González Byass over 100 years ago. The rare casks, which have previously held 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry, are exclusive to The Dalmore. These casks enrich the signature chocolate and orange character of our whisky with rich and nutty flavours. To create a more complex character, some of The Dalmore whiskies benefit from an extra flourish in additional casks. Every cask that we source is of impeccable quality and hand-selected to produce our renowned Single Malt Whisky.

Dalmore Cigar Malt Single Malt Whisky is part of a collection that represents a quintessential Highland Scotch whisky and with a long and storied pedigree ranking it among Scotland’s most renowned single malts.
