Dalmore distillery was used as a deep-sea mine production centre by the Royal Navy between 1917 and 1920. After the navy left the distillery was left in tatters, and after a long compensation battle, involving the House of Lords, the distillery was brought back online. Now Dalmore, under the stewardship of Richard Paterson, presents itself as a luxury brand, with some of their bottlings among the most expensive in the world.
According to Dalmore: Our Master Distiller selects our most intense whiskies, typically aged from 10 to 15 years, drawn exclusively from first fill oaken casks for this unique expression. The assemblage combines whiskies from both Oloroso sherry butts and Bourbon barrels in an approximate two thirds to one harmonious fusion. When married, the liquid is then returned to upstanding sherry butts for a further six months, delivering an enhanced, intense taste experience with a sweet finish.
