The Dalmore has released a new addition to its Principal Collection, the 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Select Single Malt. The new expression has been created as an evolution of the distillery’s house style, while celebrating the affinity between The Dalmore and sherry.

Master distiller Richard Paterson selected cask partners from Andalucia, Paez, Tevas and Vasyma. Together they curated the perfect oak casks and created a bespoke sherry blend to season them in order to realise the exact flavour profile desired.

The single malt spent 10 years maturing in American white oak ex-Bourbon casks, before being filled into a bespoke Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez cask for a full finish of up to three years.

Paterson said: ‘The 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Select is elegance personified and an excellent addition to our Principal Collection. Its full finish in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks reveals a more floral, light and refined side to The Dalmore. It is a truly decadent whisky which celebrates the deep-rooted alliances with our cooperage partners to source the most exquisite casks and truly showcase the depth of The Dalmore’s character.’

The Dalmore 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Select is now available to purchase at The Whisky Shop in the UK at an RRP of £69. The expression is also available across major Asian markets including Taiwan and China and will be made available in the US from 2021.
