Dalmore 12 Y
Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for its final flourish. One half remains in the bourbon barrels, while the other is transferred to exclusive 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenomenal whisky!
The real test of courage is how someone reacts when faced with true danger. A moment arose in 1263 that would test the mettle of every man in a hunting party that accompanied King Alexander III of Scotland. During the hunt, a stag charged at the King, and of all the men there only one acted, Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie. He speared the stag in its forehead, crying out ‘Cuidich ‘n’ Righ’, Gaelic for ‘Save the King’ as he struck.
The act of saving King Alexander III’s life would prove to be a defining moment for Colin of Kintail, the Clan Mackenzie and in the history of The Dalmore.
