The astonishing 1951, a 60-year-old single malt, is one of the oldest whiskies ever released by The Dalmore. It is the last of the whisky distilled during the Mackenzie era, during which the practices which persist to this day were developed and perfected.
Dalmore 1951 Scotch Whiskey 750ml
Deep mahogany, beaming copper and flashes of amber gold.
Generous and full, with a robust overture of aged oloroso Sherry, treacle toffee, liquorice stick, with hints of balsamic. A further layer of Olde English marmalade, freshly ground Java coffee, dark bitter chocolate and molasses immediately follows on. Subtle whispers of glazed cherries, moist Napoleon cake and sun-kissed raisins linger enticingly in the background.
Once tasted, never forgotten. The Sherry wood has cast its magical charm to reveal enticing flavours of pecan pie, banana fig cake, crushed almonds and hints of Chinotto oranges. As these enchanting flavours disperse, they are quickly replaced by juicy raisins drenched in Marsala, thick treacle, overripe pineapple and frangipane.
Whispers of black treacle, ginger spice and cocoa powder.
