Dalmore 1973 Gonzalez Byass Finish 30 Year Old
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.
Distilled on the 22nd March 1973 and matured in American oak before being finished in Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks from Gonzalez Byass, Jerez de la Frontera. This was then bottled as a 30 year old.
From the rear of the box of this whisky, 'In essence, the 1973 is a collector's item witnessing a unique collaboration between two premium brands to bring you the ultimate single malt experience.' We couldn't have put it better!
