The only Constellation whisky finished in Port pipes. The time spent in the finest Tawny Port pipes has gifted this whisky with a rich palate of cassis, black forest fruits and rich plums. It is a truly memorable whisky.
Under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Richard Paterson, this spirit was initially matured in American white oak first-fill Kentucky Bourbon barrels for a flawless base of vanilla, ginger spice and mangos.
After maturing 10 years in the cask, the spirit was transferred to the finest Tawny Port pipes from Porto, Portugal where it rested for nine years more. During this time the spirit was nurtured by the cask, yielding notes of chunky marmalade, bitter chocolate and rich plums
One of the few examples where The Dalmore has only been matured in a single sherry cask. This whisky has been matured in a cask which has previously held rare, 30 years old Apostoles sherry. The cask has been exclusively sourced from the González Byass bodega and gifts the whisky with rich notes of orange, mango and crushed almonds.
The Dalmore Constellation 1979 is an outstanding example of how time and cask selection can work together to create an exhilarating whisky. After spending 33 long years resting in Warehouse no. 9, the whisky had time to develop and refine at its own pace, yielding to an array of aromas including notes of apples, peaches and lemongrass. This whisky was aged and nurtured by a powerful cask made from Quercus Alba from the Ozark mountain range of Missouri.
Each expression is housed in a spectacular hand-blown crystal decanter, engraved by hand and embellished with a solid silver stag.
Dalmore 35 has been aged in a Bourbon barrel, Matusalem Sherry butt and Colheita Port pipe cask. The elegant whisky is presented in a hand-blown crystal decanter crafted by French crystal house Baccarat.
The Dalmore stag emblem featured on the decanter is the work of Scottish silversmith and Royal Warrant holder Hamilton & Inches.
Richard Paterson, Master distiller at Dalmore, who celebrated 50 years working in whisky in 2016, said: ‘It took careful maturation in three different kinds of wood over 35 years to release the full potential of this whisky. ‘Only after this long period did the whisky finally become everything I envisaged it could be.’
