Dalmore 1966 The Bottlers 30 Year Old Cask 50cl / Whiskies of the World

Similar to the First Cask brand, The Bottlers is an independent label produced by a well-connected wine distributor. The bottles, produced by Raeburn Fine Wines in Edinburgh, are labelled simplistically and near-identically to each other, a no-frills approach that highlights their focus on cask selection first. The Bottlers releases have developed a cult following because of this, and old and new releases alike are increasingly sought after.

A rare independent bottling of Dalmore, this was distilled in 1966 and released at 30 years old for Whiskies of the World.

Drawn at cask strength from cask #6869 in 1996.

Dalmore is undoubtedly the prize single malt in the Whyte & Mackay portfolio. This was not always the case though. The blenders purchased it from the Mackenzie family in 1960, having been long-standing customers. Due to the long-running importance of it to their blends, their distillery bottlings of its single malt were limited to a 12 year old expression. Nowadays however, it is positioned as a luxury brand, rubbing shoulder with the likes of Macallan, and is globally recognised. Independent releases like this are hard to come by.
