A gorgeous Dalmore Single Malt finished in Tawny Port casks from W&J Graham's.

Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East, founded The Dalmore Distillery in 1839. The Dalmore changed owners many times throughout the years, with Clan Mackenzie being in control the longest. They are in the Northern Highlands, halfway between Inverness and Tain. All of Dalmore’s core Whiskies start in ex-Bourbon barrels. What sets them apart is the finishing and consistent experimentation with wood. Each of their releases is treated to a special maturation and finishing prized by Scotch-lovers world wide.

W&J Graham's has been making the finest Port Wines for more than two hundred years. Dalmore has maintained a close relationship with this vintner because… well, Tawny Port Wine casks work magic on Highland Single Malt. The Dalmore Port Wood Reserve is the third collaboration between the two and it is simply magical. The Dalmore Single Malt starts in ex-Bourbon casks and then is allowed to luxuriate in those decadent Port casks before being bottled at a PERFECT 46.5% ABV. This is truly a gorgeous dram.

Smartass Corner:
The story of the famous Dalmore stag icon on the bottles goes back to 1263 when Scottish King Alexander the Third was attacked by stag. He was saved by the chief of Clan Mackenzie with a single arrow.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
