70cl / 52%
Bottled in 1978 into just sixty beautiful cut crystal decanters, the casks for Dalmore 50yo were laid down in the 1920s, and some of the spirit is reputed to have been distilled in the late 19th century. This is one of the best 50 year-old whiskies ever produced and is the personal favourite of many connoisseurs worldwide.

An amazing intensity of flavour, with truly profound depths, Dalmore 50 year old is an unforgettable experience. The astonishing range and concentration of aromas and flavours that assail the senses as one approaches this whisky are almost boundless, and remain utterly unique to Dalmore 50 year old. One thing is certain - it takes years to create a masterpiece, but only seconds to recognise it.
This limited edition malt represents a classic impact of unsurpassed flavours that attack the palate in a positive, unforgettable manner, rewarding it with a multitude of complex flavours that linger in the mouth. As it has taken years to create a single malt of this class, the ‘passion’ found in this spirit must be allowed time to display its true identity.
As the whisky has been bottled at cask strength, some customers may find that a few drops of water will really allow the extraordinary flavours full freedom to express themselves. The malt must then be allowed to roll over the tongue and ‘chewed’ for at least six seconds before it is finally swallowed. The heat from the tongue will help to release some of the most rare and subtle flavours.
To nose and taste a whisky of the quality of Dalmore 50 year old is a privilege reserved for only the lucky few. An unforgettable experience.
