The Dalmore Port Vintages collection showcases the special relationship that the distillery has with pioneering winemaker W & J Graham’s.
Vintage 2001 begins as a complex assemblage of spirits selected from the finest American white oak ex-bourbon casks, creating the perfect canvas from which to create this special single malt.
It is then finished in specially selected Tawny port pipes reserved from Graham’s vineyard in Douro, Portugal, for The Dalmore’s exclusive use. The rich, Tawny port pipes gift the whisky with the flavours the Master Distiller seeks for this expression, imparting a truly indulgent elegance to this unique Vintage.
Nose: Exotic spices, cinnamon, raisins and tangerines dipped in chocolate.
Palate: Caramelised peaches, freshly baked bread and morello cherries.
Finish: Turkish delight, figs and coffee
Every wine vintage tells its own story but to me when it comes to The Dalmore Port Vintages, seasoned in the finest aged Graham’s port pipes…it becomes a true classic never to be forgotten!”
