Dalmore Vintage 2007 70cl 46°
Dalmore develops Vintage versions in which are assembled from whiskies all distilled the same year.
This new expression of The Dalmore, is the seventh version of a series of small batch and has been created exclusively for the European market. It has matured twice, firstly in ex-American oak bourbon casks and then in ex sherry casks that contained the precious liquid of the 30-year-old Gonzalez Byass Apostoles.
The result is creamy and complex.
|Maturation||Bourbon & Sherry|
Established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, this Northern Highlands distillery owns a very old still which neck is cooled by a water stream, which clears the distillate from its heaviest elements.
This might explain its ability to age for a long period (more than 50 years), even if a bottle of that age is extremely rare and pricey. The Dalmore is one of the rare distilleries that used to be managed by a woman, between 1860 and 1866. When the Mackenzie family bought the distillery in 1866, she brought with her the symbol of the clan – a stag head with twelve horns – meaning “royal”, labeled on each bottle released by the distillery. In 1960, the distillery merged with the Whyte & Mackay company, founded by Mackenzie relatives.
