The King of Malts meets the King of Grapes.

That's the exciting prospect we have here. Initially matured in American White Oak, this whisky has subsequently spent several years gathering complexity in Cabernet Sauvignon casks.

Not ordinary casks. But those from a rare vintage Chateau Haut - Marbuzet (Saint Estephe) and specially selected by our Master Blender, Richard Paterson. So their pedigree is faultless.

The aim was to retain as much character of the malt as possible, and not to rush the various stages, allowing the whisky time to harmonise. Taking an age to reach perfection, but only a few seconds to recognise, this is a deserved masterpiece.

The nose is initially far from a typical Dalmore, with notes of grape pulp, prunes and fudge, leading to aromas of soft fruit and honey.

However, the taste does have the citrus orange character of Dalmore which is combined on the palate with blackberries, liquorice and a distinct suggestion of richly mellow, vintage red wine.

The finish is long and spicy with plums and ripe autumn berries right to the end. Very much an intriguing whisky with true elegance and refinement, the Dalmore Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most distinctive, 33 year old limited edition releases.

Restricted Release of only 1000 bottles.
