Dalmore "Castle Leod" Limited Release Scotch Whisky

Limited Edition Castle Collection Vintage 1995

Home of Clan MacKenzie

This limited edition bottling celebrates the ancient and historic seat of Clan Mackenzie and is the second in a series crafted by Master Distiller Richard Paterson in homage to Clan Mackenzie.

Castle Leod has been home to the Caberfeidh, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, since 1606 and is located just 14 miles from the The Dalmore Distillery.

This classic Vintage 1995 expression was matured initially in American white oak and Spanish sherry wood, before being transferred for a final 18 months to barriques from a legendary 1st cru classe Bordeaux chateau.

The Dalmore “Castle Leod” Tasting Notes

The joyful effervescence of fleshy plums, raisins and citrus fruits are followed by the silky tones of kiwi fruit, honey, caramelised pear and sweet mango. A final feast of crushed almonds, spicy ginger, chewy toffee and soft liquorice brings this cornucopia of delights to a perfect conclusion.
