Dalmore 50 Year
The Dalmore // Highlands, Scotland
This bottling, released in January 2017, was created by master distiller Richard Paterson and released in honor of his 50 years in the whisky industry. The whisky was aged in a variety of casks. First, it was filled in 1966 into American oak ex-bourbon barrels. The whisky next spent time in former Matusalem oloroso sherry and then colheita port pipes. Finally, the whisky was transferred to Henri Giraud Champagne barrels for 50 days to finish aging. The presentation of the bottle should be commented upon. The crystal decanter was crafted by Baccarat, the display cabinet created by bespoke furniture maker LINLEY, and the bottle is adorned with a solid silver stag crafted by Hamilton & Inches.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
