All about making whisky
DALMORE 45 ans Of 40%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 54263
An assemblage brought together by master blender Richard Paterson using some of the distillery’s rarest and most exceptional malts. The whisky is matured initially in American white oak ex-bourbon casks before being transferred into vintage W & J Graham’s Colheita Port pipes from 1961 and 1963. It remains in these port pipes for 5 years, creating a whisky which is indulgent, smooth and complex. It is then married together for a final flourish in first fill American white oak ex-bourbon casks for a truly magnificent finish.

- The brand
Dalmore can claim to own the oldest stills in the Highlands, one of which has been in use since 1874! It uses a variety of spirit stills for production, with this unique combination enabling Dalmore to obtain an extremely balanced single malt which boasts incredible complexity. For ageing its whisky, Dalmore predominately uses a wide range of sherry casks: Oloroso, Amoroso, Mathusalem, etc. that come from the Gonzales Byass vineyard in Andalucia. An exceptional partnership all round. Once the whisky has been matured, different varieties of cask are assembled to create the different expressions in the range, each being matured for an extra four months in order to help the malts marry and produce harmonious flavours.
