Cigar Malt Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
In 1839, Alexander Matheson sought the perfect location for his new distillery. With his only criteria as finding the best natural resources to make the finest whisky, he settled on an isolated area on the banks of the Cromarty Firth. And so, The Dalmore was born. Uniquely using irregular shaped stills, Dalmore believes that they produce a stronger and more complex character to their whiskies. Their spirits are charactered with deep copper colour and flavours of crushed almonds, cinnamon, ginger and citrus. The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve Single Malt is designed to provide the perfect accompaniment to the finest of cigars. With tropical fruit, vanilla cream and orange zest notes, its symphony of flavours are truly exquisite.

About the brand
Currently standing as Whyte and Mackay’s largest distillery and the flagship for the brand, Dalmore was originally founded by Alexander Matheson in 1839. Dalmore’s character is rich and unarguably full-bodied, with orange, chocolate and coffee flavours, making it an extremely popular choice as a post dinner digestif. The distillery was built by Matheson in 1839. On its completion it was immediately leased to local distillers, the Sunderland family, who ran and managed it for over a quarter of a decade, until in 1869, the lease was taken over by three Mackenzie brothers, Alexander, Charles and Andrew. Originally built with only 2 stills, this number was doubled in 1874 and then following Alexander Matheson's death, the distillery was fully purchased by the Mackenzies in 1891. Although the popularity of Dalmore was booming, war brought a cease in production. The distillery was closed in 1917 production due to the Royal Navy were using the warehouses as factories to produce mines. They vacated in 1920, yet, the Navy had left their mark – leaving a part of the buildings fire damaged. Due to the necessary reconstruction, Dalmore only resumed production in 1922. The distillery remained under sole ownership until 1960, when it was merged with Whyte and Mackay, with the new company increasing the number of stills from four to eight in 1966. In the period between 1970 and 2002 ownership of Whyte and Mackay changed hands a number of times until resting at its current Indian ownership, with parent company Whyte & Mackay having been bought by Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya's United Brands group in 2007. Each expression of The Dalmore is matured in two different types of wooden casks: American white oak bourbon and exclusive aged sherry casks. Each sherry cask –hand selected by multiple award winning Master Distiller, Richard Paterson – gives the whisky its deep copper colour and notes of almonds, cinnamon and citrus. The bourbon casks give the whisky notes of vanilla, spice, honey and tropical fruits. The Dalmore has a selection of awards under its belt, with the 15 year old winning Silver at the 2014 International Spirits Challenge; Silver Highland Scotch Single Malt at 2013 & 2014 International Wine & Spirit Competition, the 18 Year Old: receiving Silver Award (Distillers Single Malts between 13 and 20 years old) at the International Spirits Challenge, 2014, and the 12 Year Old a Bronze Medal at World Whiskies Awards, 2016.

Rich with dried organic products muscavado sugar pleasantness. Solid sherry components give a happy edge to a simple drinking measure.

Cheers to my old buddy Lee for this example. On the button pleasantness comes to fruition with vanilla caramel cherries/sherry and sweet tobacco. For the sense of taste darker organic products like blueberries stogies toffee salted peanuts and cashews. The completion is overall quite long with some sulfuric notes toward the back. This isn't the more established unique discharge which gets somewhat better grades I hear and I'd love to attempt it. I'll give this a 4.0. The subject of this measure ought to be Smokin'" by Boston."

Tasting Notes
Nose
Caramel, shortbread, biscuits, coffee and chocolates. Simple, clean and moreish.
Taste
Yet more toffee, caramel edging towards the burnt cinder-toffee side of things. Flamed orange-zest, and perfectly integrated sherry.
Finish
Reasonably simple, Christingles (orange Zest and clove with a touch of cinnamon), more mid-palate than palate-coating.
