The Dalmore Port Wood Reserve starts its journey in the finest American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The precious liquid is then split equally with half of the whisky remaining in the American white oak and the remainder transferred to aged Tawny port pipes from W & J Graham’s vineyard in Portugal. They are then married back together to harmonise the flavours before bottling.

The legend of The Dalmore dates back to 1263 when Colin of Kintail Chief of the clan Mackenzie saved King Alexander III of Scotland from a charging stag. As a reward the grateful King granted Colin of Kintail the lands of Eilean Donan the motto ‘Luceo Non Uro’ which translates to ‘I Shine Not Burn’ and the right to use the 12-pointed Royal Stag as the Mackenzie clan crest. The distillery itself was established many years later in 1839 by entrepreneur Alexander Matheson who after 28 years decided it was time to pass the distillery onto new owners. Andrew and Charles Mackenzie came forward and as members of the clan Mackenzie they brought with them the iconic 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem the caberfeidh which has adorned every bottle of The Dalmore since.
Sweet red berry aromas, the palate is full of citrus fruit, creamy caramel, roast chesnuts and java coffee. The finish is smooth with hints of blood orange and macerated cherries.
Best served neat or with a drop of water.
