The Dalmore Valour. Photo courtesy Whyte & Mackay. This travel retail exclusive uses three different cask finishes. Master blender Richard Paterson used a combination of ex-Bourbon casks, Spanish Matusalem Oloroso Sherry Casks, and Port pipes from Portugal to create Valour, and the result is a single malt with a clean and light nose and hints of toffee, marzipan, and raisins. The taste has subtle spices at first, with a good buildup of cinnamon and hints of toffee, caramel, raisins, and baked apples. The finish is clean, spicy, and lingering with touches of nutmeg and cinnamon. Very nice! (November, 2013)
