This Saturday, November 11, To commemorate both our second anniversary and Veteran’s Day, Wyatt’s Wet Goods is hosting a special free tasting from The Dalmore Scotch collection, along with luxury wines.
The Dalmore is a quintessential Highland Scotch whisky, with a long and storied pedigree ranking it among Scotland’s most renowned single malts. We will be featuring their flagship 12 year old, 15 year, and their Cigar Malt Reserve specialty whiskies.
The Dalmore 12 year old, with its intricate aromas and flavors, is recognized as a whisky with character far beyond its age. Matured for an initial nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, the spirit is then divided for its final flourish. One half remains in the bourbon barrels, while the other is transferred to exclusive 30 year old Gonzalez Byass Matusalem oloroso sherry butts before they are reunited to create this phenomenal whisky.
Its aroma greets you with elements of citrus fruits, chocolate, and aromatic spices. Its flavors of citrus, especially orange, vanilla bean pod, and an enticing sweetness of oloroso sherry carry into a finish of roasted coffee and chocolate. 40% ABV.
The Dalmore 15 is a delicate and approachable vintage that is initially matured for 12 years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The character of The Dalmore 15 is achieved by then splitting the whisky equally between three different sherry woods; Amoroso, Apostoles, and Matusalem oloroso for a further three years. The spirit is finally married together in an upstanding sherry butt, allowing the flavors to infuse.
It opens with aromas of orange marmalade, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Its palate is smooth and rich, with elements of mandarin, vanilla, and ginger, and a finish of Christmas spice and oak. Ideal for sharing fireside. 40% ABV.
Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve is a specially crafted whisky designed to be the perfect accompaniment for a fine cigar. After an initial maturation in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, it is then finessed in premier cru Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques.
The result has aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, and red fruits and complementing tastes of tropical fruits, banana toffee, and vanilla ice cream. Its deeply satisfying, lingering finish has waves of orange zest and bergamot. 44% ABV.
As well as The Dalmore collection, Wyatt’s will be sampling the Shackleton Expedition Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. Inspired by whisky recovered from Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1907 Antarctic expedition, this malt whisky has been expertly recreated using the antique Mackinlay’s as its foundation, combined with the finest Highland malt whiskies. Its nose carries elements of Golden Grahams and brown sugar, with a dusting of cinnamon malt. It displays flavors of juicy apple and honeyed orange with notes of lingering butterscotch in the finish. 40% ABV.
