Dalrymple House Malt 100° Proof, 10y 2011
Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, The Whisky Cellar, 750 ml
This blended malt whisky is a a tea-spooned single cask from a lowland distillery. It has matured for 10 long years in first fill American Oak Oloroso Sherry butts. The alcohol content was reduced from its natural cask strength to the traditional 100% proof (57.1 vol.), with the aim of achieving a balance between the spirit and the influence of the wooden cask. It is butter toffee and aromas of sultanas, which first present themselves in the nose. On the palate, sweet notes of caramelized pecans cozy up to orange zest, violet and cherry. The finish is incredibly soft, with enduring notes of sweet toffee and roasted nuts.

Scotland – Wild history, warming whisky
Whiskey, bagpipes, kilts – These are the most famous elements of Scottish culture. It has not been conclusively determined who invented whisky. The Scots and Irish both argue that they invented the “water of life.” Food and drink definitely tops the Scottish export categories. Every second, around 40 bottles of whisky are purchased. So it’s hardly surprising that whisky makes up around 80 percent of total food and drink exports.
