The Dalmore Introduces Rare 51 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey
A cup of ambrosia is finally within reach with Dalmore’s rare single malt whiskey. Aged for 51 years, this new whiskey presents itself in a crystal decanter and high gloss coffret, cased in black sycamore wood. The Dalmore’s emblematic 12-point “Royal” stag is emblazoned on the decanter and comes with a beautiful crystal stopper.
Each bottle pays homage to the brand’s heritage and it’s 180-year history. The Dalmore’s Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, has followed the single malt whiskey through its five-decade maturation, which began in ex-bourbon casks. The process is followed by equally distributing the spirits between Port Colheita 1938 casks, Matusalem sherry casks, and first fill bourbon casks. The spirits are then reunited in bourbon barrels for that final flourish.
The final product is a spirit of rich mahogany gold and copper, with aromatic nuances of everything from liquorice sticks to black morello cherries to Oloroso sherry and old English marmalade. The palate radiates with the tastes of El Dorado plums, ginger cake with Demerara sugar, and Madagascan vanilla. These rich flavours intermingle with one another to create an exquisite one-of-a-kind tasting malt whiskey that is aged perfectly to deliver flavour and depth.
The Dalmore Aged 51 Years, of which only 51 bottles are available worldwide, is available at a selection of retail and travel outlets across the globe for around £55,000.
