The Dalmore 40 Year-Old Whisky

Aug 9, 2017

Category: Vices

From the renowned Master Distiller himself, Richard Paterson, and The Dalmore comes a new expression from the iconic distillery. It’s a 40-year scotch that’s been matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, later transferred into 30-year-old Gonzalez Byass Matsualem oloroso sherry butts, and finished in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels.

From here, each one of 750 bottles slated for release is to be housed in an elegant Baccarat decanter for an opulent display. Additionally – and this is coming straight from “The Nose” himself – the whisky is said to boast aromas of Columbian coffee and marmalade in congruence with a palate of gingerbread and honey followed by blood oranges, apples, and licorice sticks. Sounds delectable indeed. And with a price tag of over $7,800, it better be.
