Dalmore 1990 Wemyss Malts 18 Year Old / Spiced Figs
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.
Wemyss Malts was founded in 2005 by William Wemyss, who had previously been a wine producer in Western Australian and Provence, France. The first Wemyss Malts output was a selection of blended malts, but the company has also bottles vintage independent single malts. These are generally titles with elaborate descriptors, in a similar vein to the Scotch Malts Whisky Society, and are highly regarded. In the 2013 the Wemyss family also bought the Kingsbarns distillery project, which they completed the following year, beginning production in 2015.
Dalmore, distilled in 1990 and bottled over 18 years later in April 2009 from a sherry casks.
