Dalmore Constellation 1979 Cask 1093 33 Year
The Dalmore // Highlands, Scotland
Dalmore launched in 2012 the exclusive and ultra-limited Dalmore Constellation Collection, made of a set of 21 vintages of single casks, from 1964 to 1992. Apart from offering to the public what is supposed to be the best of the best from the distillery, the Constellation also brings to whisky lovers the possibility to travel through time to taste whiskies of various character, depending on the trend at the time they were distilled and the influence of the oak selected for aging. In this case, a sherry butt contained the whisky for 33 years prior to release. At this price per bottle, you also get a hand blown decanter, solid silver stag and lacquered box.
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.

"The sherry is clearly playing a huge role here to give all the right flavors of a rich whisky, with lots of dry fruits, spices and light touches of smokiness. However, none of the aromas are obvious or taking overpowering. Everything is just rightly balanced and gives you the desire to drink again. After paying $8000 for a bottle, the feeling is understandable. "
