- ABV 43%
The 'Fortuna Meritas' collection is Dalmore's new travel retail range of four whiskies: Dominium, Regalis, Valour and Luceo. Dominium sits at the top of the pack and comes matured in x Bourbon casks then finished in first-fill Matusalem sherry casks (a cask that’s been 'enriched' - or sweetened - with 25% Pedro Ximenez). Master Blender Richard Paterson explains, "For this collection I looked to our long-standing and unique partnership with Gonzalez Byass as this allowed me to draw from rare, rich and valuable sherry casks. I was able to create a different and unique finish for each whisky, giving each of them a rich and complex flavour, but with their own nuances and individual flair." If you like sherried malts, consensus is this is the best of the Fortuna Meritas collection.Other reviews... thick, full-on grape; lush delivery which becomes progressively more chewy...no taint to the fruit and though the finish is dull you can say it is never less than very attractive. 43% Alc./Vol.
89.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2019 ...Oh, 43% vol., hallelujah! This one was finished in Matusalem sherry, which is to Dalmore what Connolly leather was to Rolls-Royce. Colour: gold/bronze. Nose: the driest, the most leathery, the most walnutty, and the woodiest of them all. New humidor, curry powder, cocoa powder, sweet mustard, old walnuts, these sorts of things. We’re almost nosing some old oloroso, there’s even a kind of wood/coal smokiness, very peculiar. No, not struck matches, rather flints, old rifles… Mouth: well, it reminds me a bit of neighbours Glenmorangie’s first sherry finishings, that was quite a long time ago. Toffee, coffee, Corinth raisins, and more chocolate than in a Swiss bank. Some heavy black tea as well, Russian style, which gives it a tannic-like feeling. Finish: medium to long and rather spicier. Cloves, caraway, gingerbread, and perhaps sweeter drops of PX. Bizarrely, the aftertaste is rather sweeter and almost liqueury, Zacapa-style, but I like this Dalmore much, much better. And the after-aftertaste is grassier/leafier again. Comments: the biggest one, and that’s not only the higher strength.
