Quintessence mean 'perfect embodiment' and this limited edition expression of The Dalmore truly lives up to that. It is a unique single malt whisky which showcases the technical virtuosity and creative vision which sets The Dalmore apart.
Following a painstaking search, five different types of red wine cask were hand selected and sent to The Dalmore distillery deep in the Highlands of Scotland. Following an initial maturation in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels, the spirit was split across the five cask types which had individually held; Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
These casks were then carefully placed deep within warehouse No. 2 to ensure the perfect enviroment for the wine casks to impart their distinct characteristics into the whisky. After an unprecedented five years finessing, the five casks were brought back together to create a unique and rewarding masterpiece - the only single malt whisky in the world with a five Californian red wine cask finish, and the perfect embodiment of a true master's art.
Nose - Black forest fruits, marmalade and honeycomb.
Palate - Tropical fruits, ginger and sun dried raisins.
Finish - Orange, fresh baked banana.
