The Dalmore Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has introduced a new 30-Year-Old limited-edition bottling and it starts with the 2021 edition. This would be launched on the 1st of September and there would be only 200 bottles available nationwide. The 30-Year Old 2021 Edition is the first in what will be a series of limited annual editions. Each edition will offer a new 30-year release of The Dalmore single malt.
The 2021 Edition started life in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels and was then transferred into the 30 Year Old Tawny Port Pipes from Graham’s Port. The aged Tawny Port Pipes then work along with The Dalmore’s house style to create the whisky. The whisky has an aroma of candied orange, treacle toffee, morello cherries, and freshly baked brioche while on the palate you have black forest fruits, pear Tarte Tatin, and victorian plums. The finishing notes comprise of Madagascan vanilla pod, Napoleon cake, and shaved almonds.
The Dalmore 30-Year-Old limited release is presented in a framed purple case and adding contrast to the darkness of the case, the brand’s Royal silver stag is presented on the front.
“This new annual release, although instantly collectible, is intended for whisky fans seeking the finest Scotch whisky to enjoy every year and we’re proud that it is a celebration of our longstanding relationship with Graham’s Port,” explains Whisky Maker Gregg Glass. “The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is the result of our shared patience and dedication to the craftsmanship of over more than 180 years, creating an exquisite Single Malt which is divinely decadent with every drop.”
“It’s wonderful to see this series come to life with the launch of The Dalmore 30 Year Old,” says Charles Symington, Head Winemaker for Graham’s. “Our rare 30 Year Old Tawny Port is an exceptional liquid that we are tremendously proud of and its complex palate works beautifully with The Dalmore’s whisky to create something truly special.”
The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is available at fine retailers and comes with an RSP of $5,500.
