The Dalmore is launching a trio of whiskies that have been aged using Tawny Port pipes from winemakers W&J Graham’s and were exclusive to the Dalmore. Comprised of three editions, the oldest bottle expression is from 1996, which described as having a "palate of Gingerbread and passion fruit, with a finish of pineapple, marzipan and blood oranges."
The 1998 vintage is said to have "a fruity palate of honeyed bananas, blueberries and grapes, with Damson plums and dark treacle providing a depth to the finish" while the 2001 vintage "offers a spicier aroma and a palate of morello cherries. A coffee finish is accompanied with hints of Turkish delight and figs."
The Dalmore Vintage Port Collection is available now at select whiskey retailers.
