Dalmore Valour Awarded Gold At IWSC 2017

9th August 2017
Gold Medal for the deliciously fruity, vanilla fudge infused Dalmore Valour.

The Dalmore Valour awarded a Gold Medal and a Gold Trophy at IWSC 2017.Good to see the Dalmore Valour picking up an award, the travel retail dram has just been awarded a Gold Medal and a Gold Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2017.

Judges scored The Dalmore Valour 93+, awarding the whisky a Gold Outstanding Medal and a Gold Trophy in the Single Malt Scotch Whisky No Age Stated category at this year’s IWSC awards.

As a regular traveller myself I have enjoyed a couple of bottles of this easy drinking, deliciously fruity, vanilla fudge infused dram since it was launched back in 2013. I gave it a SMW Score of 86/100, I know from talking to the staff that work in World of Whiskies shop at Glasgow airport which I pass through most weeks that this is a very popular dram and repeat buy for many travellers and it is good to see it getting recognised with an award.

Initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, which gifts it with its first base of soft vanilla notes. The spirit is then carefully divided between port pipes from the Douro region of Portugal and Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks, exclusively provided by the renowned by Gonzalez Byass Bodega. Here they were given an extended period of time to mature before they were reunited back together to harmonise in an upstanding sherry butt.

The IWSC judging panel judged it as having velvety notes of plums and damsons, with some quince jelly and hints of delicately smoked meats. Judges described a palate which gives a richness of cookie dough, crème brulee topping, plums and sour cherry. In terms of its finish, the panel found hints of spice and more fresh cherry notes.

Although initially exclusive to travel retail, The Dalmore Valour can also be found available from some specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt
