The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
This specially crafted whisky has been expertly made to be the perfect accompaniment to the finest of cigars. Matured initially in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, it is then finessed in premier cru Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques. Aroma: Cinnamon, vanilla and red fruits. Palate: Tropical fruits, banana toffee and vanilla ice cream. Finish: Orange zest, bergamot.
Aged in a series of barrels-first American oak, then transferred to a former oloroso Sherry cask and finished in used Cabernet Sauvignon barriques-this Scotch would be an outstanding dessert accompaniment too. Look for dusty cocoa and lots of Sherried dark fruit, like figs and dates, wrapped in caramel and baking tones that linger on the spicy finish.
