The Dalmore Scotch Single Malt Cigar Malt Reserve 750ml

The Dalmore Scotch Single Malt Cigar Malt Reserve

Smells of characteristic Dalmore notes of orange blossom honey and Grand Marnier. Oaky old sherry which conjures images of polished leather armchairs and a whisky-stained wooden bar. Dried cherries in ruby port wine reduction. Deeper in, there’s raw honeycomb and browning butter. Sophisticated. This malt’s wearing a tailored suit, but the tie is loose and the coat unbuttoned. On the palate, round and medium-bodied. Mild tongue burn, punctuated with waves of cherry, orange liqueur, and sweet sherry. The burn continues longer than I’d expect in a product this well-aged, but it provides a welcome counterpoint to the not-quite-cloying sweetness. Finishing quite long, with oak tannins galore and a buttery Chardonnay texture. Fading notes of black raisins and dried currants, stone fruit preserves, and honeysuckle. Absolutely no woody bitterness. At the tail end, a meaty fruitcake flavor strikes the final chord. A pleasure.

The distillery is located on the beautiful shoreline of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the Black Isle. Founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson. A partner in the Hong Kong trading firm, Jardine Matheson & Co. this company at the time dealt in everything from tea to opium. Distillation began with a single pair of stills, the distillery having acquired sole rights to draw its water from the River Alness; first the distillery was leased to the Sutherland family who handed over to Robert Pattison sometime during the 1860’s. The lease then quickly passed to the Mackenzie family who eventually took full ownership in 1891. Andrew Mackenzie was the driving force of the Mackenzie brothers and cheekily included the word Speyside in their sales pitch for Dalmore whisky. They added a second pair of stills in a separate stillhouse in 1874. A single branch railway line was used to connect the distillery with the main line at Alness station. This line allowed locally grown barley, peat and coal from the Fife collieries etc. to be delivered direct into the distillery. Also the pier at Belleport on the Cromarty Firth is part of the distillery, again this facility was used for shipments of barley, coals, coke and other stores to be unloaded directly from the steamers.

Are the bottle of the Dalmore Cigar Malt that I have recently purchased the old bottle style or the new one?
