An ultra-extravagant creation to be an envy of all whiskey collectors, this is the The Dalmore Aged 51 Years.
O’Gara Coach Partner and one of the world’s finest distilleries, The Dalmore, has been setting the standard in whiskey craftsmanship and curation for over 150 years. Using hand-selected casks from the world’s finest bodegas and wineries, the high-end beverage products are expertly curated to create a whisky of legendary status. The recently released “The Dalmore Aged 51 Years” marks the next chapter of the company’s 180th anniversary, first distilled in 1966.
Richard Paterson, Master Distiller of The Dalmore, notes the limited edition, full bodied single malt as “a noble malt of rare profundity” – and by the magnificent presentation, bottle decor, and 51 years of perfecting the intricate taste, we can not agree more.
Fitting for the title, only 51 decanters of this limited edition release have been created making it one of the most exclusive malts to get your hands on. The Dalmore Aged 51 Years process starts in American White Oak ex-bourbon casks before being apportioned between prestigious Port Colheita 1938 casks, exclusive Matusalem sherry and first fill bourbon casks, and lastly being brought together in specially selected bourbon barrels for a final finish.
Each stunning, crystal decanter is presented within a hand crafted carrying case made from a luxe black sycamore wood. The 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem, stemming from The Dalmore’s heritage dating back to 1263, faces prominently both on the bottle and within the case.
While the rich, mahogany gold blended with copper highlights is the first thing you see from the product, the smell of liquorice, Black Morello cherries, Modena Balsamic, and Doyenne pears fill the air as the bottle is opened.
As you take your first sip, your palate is welcomed by the taste of El Dorado plums, sweet raisins, and warm Madagascan vanilla. The experience ends with a surprising finish of nutty chocolate, freshly baked wholemeal toast, pineapple and sweet sultanas to complete the harmony of flavors.
“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,” Paterson further explains, “The Dalmore 51 Year Old is a fine example of this.”
The Dalmore Aged 51 Years will be available in select specialist retailers around the world from March 2020. For more information on
