What makes the perfect whisky? The secret doesn’t evade The Dalmore, a distillery founded on the shores of Cromarty Firth in 1867 by descendants of the Mackenzie Clan. It’s all in the care and the casks, something that Master Distiller of over 50 years Richard Paterson is a true authority on; it was he who hand-selected the rare vessels that house The Dalmore’s Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the same that once held 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso sherry. These sacred casks enhance varieties such as The Dalmore 12 and King Alexander whisky with rich, nutty characteristics against signature orange and chocolate notes. Combine this with carefully monitored conditions, aided by the bitterly cold winters of the Scottish Highlands, and you have, quite simply, one of the finest Scotch whiskies money can buy.
