Dalmore The Trio

Dalmore The Trio

What they say

TRAVELLER’S EXCLUSIVE The Dalmore Single Malt Whisky, A Masterpiece in the Making The first step in the Ensemble Collection journey, the triple cask finish of The Trio sings balance, depth, class. An exceptional single malt matured in three equally exceptional casks, The Trio bursts with ripe plum and berry, an explosion of fruit balanced by a lingering hint of sweet spice. Using a three cask maturation, The Dalmore Trio is a captivating marriage of rare and exceptional casks. The liquid is initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. This gives its first base of soft vanilla and honey notes. The whisky is apportioned between first fill ex-bourbon casks, 10 Year Old Tawny port pipes and 30 Year Old Matusalem sherry casks. The three parts are then brought back together to harmonise. Bursting with ripe plums and berries with hints of sweet spices, The Dalmore Trio is a perfect beginning to the discovery of Single Malt. A captivating Single Malt: full, rich, with great charm. The art of The Dalmore For 180 years, The Dalmore has been a masterpiece in the making. Enjoyed in the world’s most prestigious and iconic locations, it has become one of Scotland’s most revered single malts. The Dalmore’s unique house style results from finishing its whisky in the rarest and most exquisite casks selected from around the world. It has elevated whisky craftsmanship to an art form. Exceptionally giftable since 1839.
