As exceptional as is unique
THE DALMORE AGED 25 YEARS
The Dalmore uses a completely unique cask finish to create their revered 25 year old. Matured initially in American white oak, the whisky is carefully divided into rare hand-sourced 25 year old sweet Palomino Fino sherry butts and 1980 fill bourbon casks. These exceptional whiskies are then expertly married together in bourbon barrels before being transferred, for the final time into Tawny Port pipes from Portugal, for a totally unrivalled finish. The 25 showcases the dedication and creativity of Richard Paterson in his pursuit to find incredible casks for The Dalmore. Only 3,000 bottles of the rare whisky are released globally once a year. In order to ensure consistency of flavour Richard Paterson, master blender for The Dalmore, uses not 25 year old liquid, but a variety of whiskies aged between 25 years old and 33 years old! The casks used are American white oak ex-bourbon, 30 year old Tawny Port pipes and 25 year old Sweet Palomino Fino sherry butts - a type of cask never used in whisky production until now, and exclusive to The Dalmore.
