Dalmore 50 Year Old Decanter 10cl
A very interesting bottle, the liquid has a long and complex history. The casks used combine vintages from 1868, 1878, 1922, 1926 and 1939. A brief summary of these casks is below:
Cask one: Distilled in June 1868 and transferred into sherry wood in August 1880 and again in October 1891.
Cask two: Distilled February 1878 then re-racked into sherry wood in April 1890 and again in April 1908.
Cask three: Distilled March 1922.
These three casks were then “racked” – one in May 1926, one in July 1926 and one in August 1926. Then in September 1977 all 3 were then re-racked to a single, unique butt and bottled in February 1978.
Two further casks were filled in 1939 and bottled at 52 years of age in October 1991.
All the above whiskies were then blended under the master craftsmanship of Richard Paterson to create this stunning 50 Year Old.
