This 14-year-old single malt whisky is being added to The Dalmore's standard lineup of bourbons. It is aged in bourbon barrels, then 40 to 60 percent of the liquid is moved to Gonzalez Byass Pedro Ximénez sherry casks in Jerez, Spain, for around two years, with the remaining portion staying in bourbon barrels.
The two packages are then combined.
This 14 year old is the second whisky to be added to The Dalmore's core line this year after a 21 year old was released in May. There is now a whiskey that is slightly older and slightly more expensive for individuals wishing to move up from the 12 year old or the 12 year Sherry Cask Select (88 points). Watch for a review of this whiskey in the Buying Guide's upcoming Fall issue.
