Whisky Focus - The Dalmore Valour

The Dalmore Valour

11th March  2013
The Dalmore launches no age statement Valour exclusively in travel retail.

The Dalmore distillery today announced the launch of The Dalmore Valour a new no age statement expression of The Dalmore which will be available exclusively in travel retail.

The Dalmore Valour is unique blend of three different cask finishes, matured initially in first fill ex-Bourbon casks from Boston and Clermont, USA and Matusalem Oloroso sherry butts from Gonzales Byass, Jerez de la Frontera in Spain. The spirit was then finessed in Port Pipes from Duoro Region, Portugal making this a truly unique expression of The Dalmore having been matured in Bourbon, sherry casks and then finished in port casks then bottled at 40% ABV.

The Dalmore Master Distiller, Richard Paterson commented, “With a distinctive aroma consisting of scents of ripe plums, creamy caramel and citrus fruits on the nose and a wonderful palate that consists of oranges, pineapple and chocolate fudge, Valour is truly an exceptional malt.

"Named in honour of the Dalmore’s Mackenzie heritage, travel retail shoppers will be the first and only people to savour this latest Dalmore legend”

The Dalmore Valour takes its name from the Clan Mackenzie’s act of bravery in 1263 when an ancestor of the Mackenzie Clan bravely saved King Alexander III from a charging stag. The grateful King granted the Mackenzies with a ‘Royal’ 12-pointer stag in their coat of arms. The Dalmore distillery was long owned by The Mackenzie family and every bottle of The Dalmore single malt whisky is adorned with this proud emblem, symbolising the distillery’s royal pedigree.

The Dalmore Valour launched March 2013 with a high profile promotional display in Qatar Duty Free and it will then be rolled out through travel retail outlets over the course of 2013, priced at £50, €55 or US $72.
