The Dalmore produced only 200 of this new 30-year expression. This edition was aged in American white oak, ex-Bourbon barrels and was then transferred into rare Tawny Port pipes used to age Graham's 30-year.
With lively opening notes of candied orange peel, treacle toffee, Morello cherries and freshly baked brioche there's a signature Dalmore familiarity in this whisky. Add in notes of baked pears, freshly cracked vanilla pods, and a wisp of baking spice and you've got a marvelous bottle added to your collection. In a one-of-kind display, this is the bottle to show off to your friends this year.
The Dalmore Distillery has been producing exceptional single malt whisky since 1839 and for almost a century was owned by the Clan Mackenzie. The clan's defining influence on the distillery is still evident to this day, with the iconic royal stag's antlers - taken from the Mackenzie family crest - adorning each and every bottle of The Dalmore. Their claim to fame lies in the location of the distillery, which is perfectly situated to take advantage of a feast of natural resources in the Scottish Highlands - from the waters of Loch Morie, found high in the hills overlooking the distillery, to the golden barley of the rich coastal soils of the Black Isle. Today, pedigreed Master Distiller Richard Paterson is at the helm, and with his unique distilling philosophies and vast regiment of European wine cask maturation, has surged The Dalmore onto center stage as one of Scotland's premier distilleries.
