One of the most legendary distillery in the world Dalmore has launched its newest limited release: The Dalmore 35 single malt whisky. For the past thirty-five years, renowned Scotch whisky maker Richard Paterson, master distiller of The Dalmore, has been observing the exceptional spirit while it has been aging in three types of casks—ex-bourbon barrels, 30-year-old Matusalem (sweetened Oloroso) sherry casks, and vintage 1970 Colheita port pipes.
Richard Patterson travels the world in search of ideal casks in which to age his whisky. The casks, that have given the world a rich Dalmore 35 whisky, have enriched it with notes of crushed almonds, coffee mousse, soft liquorice and gingerbread, as well as a palate of dark treacle cake, freshly ground Java coffee and banana bread with a finish of roasted chestnuts, raisins and orange peel.
Every hand-blown Baccarat crystal decanter is housed in an elegant wooden case. The bottle is decorated with the iconic 12-pointed Royal Stag, which was awarded to the founding Mackenzie Clan after they saved King Alexander from a charging stag. After the Mackenzie family acquired The Dalmore Distillery, they adorned every bottle of The Dalmore with the emblem, which continues to be a distinguishing feature of their collection.
Only 1,000 bottles of the Dalmore 35 will be released worldwide per year for the next five years, at a suggested retail price of $5,500.
