The Dalmore 45 year old, 40%

Price: $12,500 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Initially matured in bourbon barrels, then transferred to two Graham's port colheita pipes from 1961 and 1963. Finally, it was married in first-fill bourbon casks. Wood resin, canola oil, sultanas, and red currants on the nose. Medium-bodied, with sweet resin, honey, and sherry on the palate, turning to treacle and raisins. The finish is very long, with dark chocolate and spicy oak tannins. (500 bottles)
