THE Dalmore distillery are set to release the 25 Year Old, the latest bottling from the 174-year-old distillery.
The 42% spirit will be the oldest in the core Dalmore range, alongside the 12, 15, 18-year-olds, as well as the King Alexander III and Cigar Malt Reserve bottles. Only 3,000 bottles of the 25 will be produced every year.
The 25 has been matured in white oak before transferring to sherry butts and bourbon casks. The liquids are then combined together in port barrels, giving the liquid a third infusion of flavour.
Dalmore Master Distiller Richard Paterson said of the 25: “The Dalmore 25 is matured in casks that have previously housed a very special grape which creates a sweeter style of sherry.
“As a result, the cask has gifted a wonderful palate of orange peel, chocolate truffles and spiced gingerbread.”
• The Dalmore 25 will be released on 25 October, RRP £600
