Luxury spirits are defined by their availability, edition, process, design and most importantly age. So it is no surprise a 50-year old scotch is commanding high five figures. The Dalmore 50-Year-Old Scotch Whisky is such a release.
The Dalmore 50-Year-Old was crafted to commemorate master distiller Richard Paterson’s 50th year in the whisky industry. “This is a special year for me so I chose to finesse this whisky in a champagne cask, as this magnificent drink is synonymous with celebratory occasions” Paterson commented.
Obviously this release is limited with only 50 decanters made, each will be hand fill on order. The Dalmore 50 has been matured in American white oak, Matusalem oloroso sherry casks from the world renowned Gonzalez Byass Bodega and port Colheita pipes from the Douro region of Portugal, before undertaking a final finesse for 50 days in rare champagne casks from Domaine Henri Giraud.
The tasting notes also speak to this spirit’s point of difference:
Aroma: Caramelised orange segments, vanilla pods and sweet sultanas
Palate: Tangy thick cut marmalade, roasted coffee and moist chocolate cake
Finish: Crushed almonds, black morello cherries and soft liquorice
Priced at $60,000.00, the Dalmore 50-Year-Old Scotch Whisky seems to be a once in a lifetime splurge. For enquiries please contact The Dalmore Distillery on +44 (0) 1349 882 362. Cheers!
