The Dalmore reveals new 35 year old expression

Whyte and Mackay has released a Dalmore 35 year old single malt in a crystal decanter created by the artisans at Baccarat.

This latest assemblage from Dalmore demonstrates Whyte and Mackay's commitment to maturing a collection of the world’s oldest and rarest whiskies.

Dalmore 35 is derived from three wood profiles which include a distillery run bourbon barrel, a matusalem sherry butt and a port colheita pipe.

The liquid is contained in a bespoke hand blown crystal decanter, created by the artisans of Baccarat, the prestigious French crystal house. The stopper is crystal and encased in silver.

Standing on the decanter is Dalmore’s emblem, the 12-point Royal Stag, which has been created by Scottish silversmith, Hamilton & Inches, a Royal Warrant holder.

The Dalmore 35 will be available at select whisky retailers globally this October and on show at TFWA Cannes this week.

Richard Paterson, the master distiller at The Dalmore, who celebrates 50 years in the whisky industry this year says: “You cannot rush the whisky, you must take time to ensure that you get the best possible results. It took careful maturation in three different woods over a 35 year period to release the full potential of this whisky. Only after this long period of time did the whisky finally become everything I envisaged it could be. Only then was it finally time to release this truly captivating whisky from its slumber.”

The RRP is £3,500 and production will be limited to 1,000 bottles a year for five years.
