Available from October this year, The Dalmore 35 has been aged in a Bourbon barrel, a Matusalem Sherry butt and a Port colheita pipe.

It has been bottled in a bespoke decanter created by French crystal house Baccarat and features the ’12-point Royal Stag’ produced by Scottish silversmiths, Hamilton & Inches, holder of the Royal Warrant.

“ You cannot rush the whisky, you must take time to ensure that you get the best possible results,” said Richard Paterson, master distiller of The Dalmore who celebrates 50-years in the whisky industry this year.

“It took careful maturation in three different woods over a 35-year period to release the full potential of this whisky.

“Only after this long period of time did the whisky finally become everything I envisaged it could be. Only then was it finally time to release this truly captivating whisky from its slumber.”

The Dalmore 35 will be available at select whisky retailers.
