Dalmore Port Wood Reserve is an exquisite sojourn into the intricate art of whisky maturation, encapsulating the masterful interplay between spirit and wood. Distilled in the Highlands of Scotland, an area renowned for producing whiskies of intricate complexity, this single malt undergoes an initial maturation in American white oak bourbon barrels, followed by a finishing period in carefully selected Tawny Port pipes from W&J Graham's Vineyard in Portugal. This double maturation ensures a whisky of unsurpassed complexity and richness, further elevated by an ABV of 46.5%. Third Base Market & Spirits is pleased to feature this exceptional single malt as a crowning jewel in its curated collection of fine spirits.
A visual treat to behold, Dalmore Port Wood Reserve captivates the eye with its deep, autumnal russet hue, bearing the distinct imprint of its port cask finish.
The olfactory experience is a concerto of aromas, led by a delicate symphony of ripe berries, plums, and hints of orange zest. These primary notes are expertly accompanied by a softer undertone of vanilla and ginger spices.
Taking a sip is akin to embarking on an epicurean journey: robust flavors of blackberries and cherries greet the palate, slowly making way for an elegant transition to notes of manuka honey, chocolate, and a sprinkling of Oriental spices. The port influence is unmistakable but judiciously applied, elevating rather than overwhelming the whisky’s inherent qualities.
The finish is an opulent affair, characterized by lingering notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of dry oak. A final encore of red fruit preserves ensures a lasting, memorable aftertaste.
Dalmore Port Wood Reserve is a highly versatile whisky for pairing, its fruity and spicy complexity making it an excellent companion to both savory and sweet dishes. Consider coupling it with a rich, blue cheese or a sumptuous dark chocolate tart to fully appreciate its expansive flavor profile.
Dalmore Port Wood Reserve epitomizes the harmonious fusion of traditional Scotch whisky craftsmanship with the intricate flavors imbued by fine Portuguese port. Whether you're a seasoned whisky aficionado or a curious novice, this exceptional bottle promises a foray into a unique sensory landscape. Your ticket to this unparalleled experience is available exclusively at Third Base Market & Spirits.
