Dalmore 2001 Port Finish 15 Year Old (70cl, 40%)
One of only 3000 bottles. One of three releases in the Dalmore Port Vintages collection, which showcases the special relationship the distillery has with winemaker W&J Graham's. This release was distilled in 2001 and matured for 15 years, including a finishing period in specially selected Tawny Port pipes.
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.
