A rare single cask expression from Dalmore, bottled by Adelphi.
A 21-year-old, this was distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2019 with just 132 bottles worldwide at 57.2%.
A famous distillery that is part of the Whyte & Mackay house, Dalmore is rarely seen under its own name through independent bottlers. The distillery favours ex-sherry casks and this is the case with this expression as well. Typically a big, oily spirit, their spirit stills are designed with water jackets around the necks to encourage reflux.
Adelphi is one of the world's top independent bottlers of whisky. They acquire casks already matured to bottle, as opposed to maturing them themselves, and the Adelphi brand has been synonymous with top quality whisky for in the post-2000 era. The company also owns the Ardnamurchan distillery on Scotland's east coast, which distilled its first spirit in 2014.
