Dalmore 21 Year Old 2022 Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl
Dalmore 21 is a highly limited Highland single malt whisky, with just 1,200 bottles being supplied to the UK from a small 8,000 bottle release. Presented in a gorgeous limited edition display box, this single malt was first aged for 10 years in American oak before a final finish in 30-year-old first-fill Gonzalez Byass Matusalen Oloroso sherry butts.
Within the Dalmore team, it has been called the pinnacle of their Principal Collection because it is the epitome of whisky-making artistry and the perfect prelude to the Dalmore range of rare and aged single malts. It is made with meticulous care and craft. An absolute labor of love created by a talented team of whisky makers who dedicate their artistry to the creation of handcrafted single malt whisky masterpieces It’s exquisitely crafted and exceptionally enjoyable.
Its extra years of ageing are enfolded in fragrant sherry oak, which gives it a higher strength of 43.8%. They also imbue it with a sumptuously subtle complexity of flavor and aroma.
On the nose, savour the citrus sweetness of Sanguinello blood oranges from Seville, evolving into rich notes of bitter dark chocolate and roasted Colombian coffee and the warm scent of Madagascar vanilla pods.
On the palate, there’s sweet liquorice, black forest fruits, roast walnuts, and hints of Christmas cake marzipan.
The lingering finish provides layers of peach, ginseng, pear tarte tatin, and Sanguinello blood orange.
This perfect spirit has been composed in a symphony of idiosyncratic copper stills and hand-finished in the exquisite sherry wood of rare, 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso casks that are exclusive to The Dalmore. Following the spirit’s decades-long sleep, it is brought into the shining light, ready to release its antique qualities into the present with every precious drop. Its spectrum of charm, elegance, and refinement awaits every mouthful. A truly timeless single malt whisky icon!
