Dalmore 1996 Cromartie
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.
Following the very popular Dalmore Clan Mackenzie release in 2010 and Dalmore Castle Leod in 2011, this was the third release in the Clan Mackenzie series.These whiskies were released to pay homage to the Clan Mackenzie and generate funds for the restoration of the Clan Mackenzie's ancestral home the Castle Leod.
This whisky has been matured in American white oak before being transferred to Oloroso sherry casks from Gonzalez Byass. It was release in 2012 and resulted in 7,500 bottles.
