The Dalmore Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has launched a new 30-year-old, limited-edition bottling, commencing with the 2021 Edition.
With only 200 bottles available nationwide, the 30-Year Old 2021 Edition is the first in what will be a series of limited annual editions.
Each edition offers a new 30-year release of The Dalmore single malt.
The 2021 Edition started life in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels. It then transferred into 30-year-old tawny port pipes from Graham’s Port.
The release is a testament to the longstanding partnership between The Dalmore and Graham’s, the companies say.
The Dalmore 30 Year Old limited release comes in a framed purple case. Adding contrast to the darkness of the case, the brand’s Royal silver stag stands on the front, reflecting the brand’s heritage and history of more than 180 years.
“This new annual release, although instantly collectible, is intended for whisky fans seeking the finest Scotch whisky to enjoy every year, and we’re proud that it is a celebration of our longstanding relationship with Graham’s Port,” says Whisky Maker Gregg Glass. “The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is the result of our shared patience and dedication to craftsmanship of over more than 180 years, creating an exquisite single malt which is divinely decadent with every drop.”
With an ABV of 42.8%, The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition has sweet aromas of freshly baked brioche and candied orange, the company reports, followed by a palate with forest fruits imparted by the tawny port pipes, finished with aromas of vanilla and shaved almonds.
“It’s wonderful to see this series come to life with the launch of The Dalmore 30 Year Old,” says Charles Symington, head winemaker for Graham’s. “Our rare 30 Year Old Tawny Port is an exceptional liquid that we are tremendously proud of, and its complex palate works beautifully with The Dalmore’s whisky to create something truly special.”
The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is available at fine retailers for a suggested retail price of $5,500 per 750-ml. bottle.
