Dalmore 45 Years Old 2018 Release
Dalmore is undoubtedly the prize single malt in the Whyte & Mackay portfolio. This was not always the case though. The blenders purchased it from the Mackenzie family in 1960, having been long-standing customers. Due to the long-running importance of it to their blends, their distillery bottlings of its single malt were limited to a 12 year old expression. Nowadays however, it is positioned as a luxury brand, rubbing shoulder with the likes of Macallan, and is globally recognised.
Released in 2018, The Dalmore 45 year old contains some of the distillery’s “rarest aged stocks” selected by master distiller Richard Paterson. The whisky has been matured in American white oak ex-Bourbon casks before being transferred to two different Graham’s Port Colheita pipes, dating from 1961 and 1963. The liquid was then married together in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks.
The expression is presented in a Baccarat crystal decanter featuring The Dalmore’s Royal Stag emblem, produced by Royal Warrant holder Hamilton & Inches.
