Dalmore 15 Year Old Luminary No.1 / Kengo Kuma
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.
The Dalmore 15 year old was launched in 2007 during a rejuvination of the core range, which also included the introduction of the King Alexander III. It is matured for 12 years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and then a further maturation in three different sherry casks: Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem Oloroso.
Created to celebrate the great Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, who is responsible for the Dundee V&A museum.
