The Dalmore has unveiled rare 51-year-old single malt, a masterpiece whisky which has evolved and matured over half a century; expertly composed using the world’s most exquisite casks.
Only 51bottles of this limited-edition release have been created, each beautifully presented in a crystal decanter and high gloss presentation case. This unique proposition will be available to purchase in select domestic and travel retail partners from February.
The latest release is The Dalmore’s first of the new decade, and reflects the distillery’s pioneering spirit and the enduring legacy of its 180-year history.
Richard Paterson, Master Distiller at The Dalmore, said: “The Dalmore 51 Year Old is a noble single malt of rare profundity and it has been my pleasure to closely follow its maturation over five decades. I am always looking towards the future and I carefully consider how each distillation will evolve, moving our spirits to new wood to transform their conclusion. The Dalmore 51 Year Old is a fine example of this.”
The Dalmore Aged 51 Years began its maturation journey in ex-bourbon casks and was then distributed between prestigious Port Colheita 1938 casks, exclusive Matusalem sherry casks and first fill bourbon casks. The spirit was finally reunited in specially selected bourbon barrels for a final flourish, demonstrating how deeply The Dalmore treasures the sanctity of the cask.
Since the end of 2019, The Dalmore has been celebrating its 180th anniversary – a landmark which will be marked by a series of special releases and events throughout this year.
