DALLAS DHU 1980 43%

Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside 70cl Ref: 19463

Founded in 1899 near Dallas in the heart of Speyside, the Dallas Dhu distillery closed its doors in 1983. Since then, the famous independent bottlers Gordon & MacPhail have kept the distillery’s precious remaining barrels stored in its cellars. Lighter and more mineral than usual, the 1980 vintage aged in sherry casks does not hesitate to set off on less familiar paths. 24 years-old, this rare whisky is at the peak of its maturity, revealing an elegance and a striking character that will no doubt recall a lost paradise to certain enthusiasts.

The brand

The brand

Closed in 1983, Dallas Dhu was bought by Historic Scotland in 1986, before being transformed into a museum and opened to the public in 1988. Founded in 1898, the year the Pattison brothers went bankrupt causing shock waves throughout the whisky industry, Dallas Dhu had a troubled history marked by long periods of closure. It was only at the end of the Second World War, and more specifically in the early 60s, that it actively restored production under a programme of modernisation. Though owned by United Distillers & Vintners, it didn’t manage to escape the wave of closures sweeping through the industry at the beginning of the 1980s.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

As its name suggests, the Rare Vintage range is quite simply a collection of rare, old vintages, and includes a substantial number of Gordon & MacPhail’s most sought-after single malts. Closely linked to the Distillery Labels range (the Rare Vintage bottlings also served as semi-official releases for several distilleries which had not had any proper official releases on the market for quite some time), the Rare Vintage bottles are to a large extent responsible for this historic specialist’s reputation.
