Dalmore Decades The No.5 Collection

"A Masterpiece of Time"

Released in 2020, this is the fifth complete fifth collection of the Dalmore Decades range. At the time of release, the fifteen complete sets were available only at Harrod's in London, Wally's Wine & Spirits in Los Angeles and Le Bon Marché in Paris.

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. This lot includes...

  • Dalmore 2000 Decades 20 Year Old 47% 70cl - This whisky was aged entirely in ex-Matusalem sherry butts.
  • Dalmore 1995 Decades 25 Year Old 42.5% 70cl - This whisky was aged in a combination of a ex-Bourbon and a ex-Port Pipe.
  • Dalmore 1980 Decades 40 Year Old 40.8% 70cl - This whisky was aged in a combination of a ex-Bourbon and a Matusalem sherry butt.
  • Dalmore 1979 Decades 40 Year Old 41.5% 70cl - This whisky was aged in a combination of a ex-Bourbon, oloroso and a 1952 vintage port cask.
  • Dalmore 1967 Decades 53 Year Old 42.5% 70cl - This whisky was aged in a combination of a ex-Port and a ex-Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine cask.

The five bottles are presented in a beautiful fabric-lined display cabinet that also houses a book that details the whiskies and the distillery itself. 

Also included in this lot are five well-crafted, weighty display plinths which are each fitted with LED lighting. Each plinth and the display cabinet include their own sturdy and branded flight cases. A professional Care Kit is also provided.

This is presentation set number 5 of only 15 produced.
