Dalmore's 12-year-old expression has been matured in ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks. The portion of sherry casks in the mix has been increased compared to former times, making it much more complex.
This bottling from Dalwhinnie is one of the most sold classic Malts of Scotland. The aroma of this Single Highland Malts shows hints of heather and smoky turf. The mild, fruity-sweet flavour leads to an excellent long finish.
For the maturation of this Whisky, Glenfiddich adopted the "Solera" procedure from Spanish Sherry production. Whiskies matured in different casks (Oloroso Sherry, Bourbon, virgin oak) are married in a unique Solera vat made from oregon pine.
18 long years of maturation and the addition of ex-sherry casks make this Glenlivet much more complex than the popular 12-year-old standard bottling. Despite its quality it's still much more affordable than a lot of other 18-year-old single malts.
Glenmorangie uses his barrels only twice. For the flagship in the range, The Original, the malt was ripened in First and Refill Bourbon casks. Original bottling is one of Scotland's best-selling single malts.
