Whyte & Mackay, The Dalmore 40-year-old 2018 release

RRP £6,750

The Dalmore is known for creating whiskies by blending a mixture of casks, and this is no exception. Initially matured in ex-Bourbon casks, it was transferred into 30-year-old Oloroso Sherry casks. This has created a rich and full whisky, with coffee and polished wood aromas. On the palate, sultanas and dates mingle with sweeter flavours such as maple syrup. Very long finish of oranges and coconut.
