TASTING NOTES
The colour is of deepest mahogany and flashes of cedar wood. The Dalmore 40 Year Old is an aromatic symphony of thick chunky orange peel marmalade and Christmas pudding arouses and stimulates the senses. This indeed is a spectrum of delightful aromas forged over many years. Every note plays in perfect harmony. A rhapsody of citrus, marzipan, spicy cinnamon slowly unfold, with hints of raisins and caramel figs. Unobtrusive wood notes not surprisingly linger softly in the background to complete this outstanding melody.

This taste is on a higher level again with distinguished malt that must be held long in the mouth. Allow the warmth of your tongue to release these hidden treasures that have remained dormant over 40 long years. The impact is truly memorable. Bold majestic flavours of thick toffee and dark chocolate reward the palate. Orange peel and crushed almonds follow closely behind. The key to this taste sensation is down to the exceptional wood. Both American White oak and Gonzalez Byass Oloroso sherry butts have made their own inimitable contribution. A partnership made in heaven: pure liquid gold.
 
The finish is as you would expect, and goes on forever.

Dalmore's extra-special 40 Year Old is the leading light of Whyte & Mackay's Rare & Prestigious range. Dalmore ages better than perhaps any other Highland distillery, and these long-aged Dalmores are increasingly sought-after by collectors. The casks used for this 40 Year Old were a mixture of American oak and sherry casks from the world-beating Gonzalez Byass.
 
All Dalmore Single Malt Whiskies are prized personal favourites of The Distinct Whiskey Company and is very highly recommended.
