This year marks an incredible milestone for The Dalmore’s Master Distiller Richard Paterson. To commemorate his 50th Anniversary in the business The Dalmore is releasing a 50-year-old single malt scotch whisky. Already, the Dalmore 50 single malt is being heralded as one of the finest spirits ever distilled.
Master Distiller Richard Paterson has been at the helm of The Dalmore’s ship for decades, guiding The Dalmore to its standing as one of the most exquisite single malt scotch whiskeys around. The Dalmore 50 is a limited edition offering matured in American White Oak Matusalem oloroso sherry casks. These casks come from the Douro region of Portugal. But it’s the final aging stage of the Dalmore 50 which is said to give it such an incredible finish, the single malt is aged for 50 days in Domaine Henri Giraud champagne casks.
This 50-day aging of the 50-year-old single malt is symbolic of the 50 years Richard Paterson has been distilling, but it’s also an homage to the finer things in life. The Dalmore has always been considered a high-end single malt, but they’ve truly outdone themselves with the Dalmore 50.
Every decanter sold of the Dalmore 50 will be adorned with a single ornamental silver stag, built by silversmiths from Hamilton & Inches, the holders of The Royal Warrant.
The Dalmore 50 single malt began its journey all the way back in 1966 when the scotch whisky first began aging in the American White Oak casks. Just let that sink on for a moment. The Dalmore 50 is NOT cheap, it will retail for around $60,780 per bottle.
