Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. The Gran Reserva is a fine Scotch in its own right, but wouldnít you know it, as soon as it was gone, people were clamoring for their dear, departed Cigar Malt. It seems that for as many people who didnít drink the Cigar Malt because they didnít smoke cigars, there were an equal number who couldnít possibly drink anything but the Cigar Malt while puffing away. Well, The Dalmore has listened to the people and the Cigar Malt is making its triumphant return. Like the first version, the Cigar Malt Reserve is made up whiskies between 10 and 14 years old, but this time around, a greater proportion has been aged in ex-Oloroso butts (70%, with the remaining 30% in ex-bourbon barrels) and the expression has been bottled at a slightly higher 44% ABV.
