The Dalmore Unveils Annual Series To Celebrate Rare 30 Year Old Spirit

NEW YORK, N.Y. — The Dalmore Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky introduces a new 30 Year Old limited-edition bottling, commencing with the 2021 Edition, set to launch on September 1st, 2021. With only 200 bottles available nationwide, the 30-Year Old 2021 Edition is the first in what will be a series of limited annual editions. Each edition will offer a new 30-year release of The Dalmore single malt, allowing whisky lovers the opportunity to indulge in a different masterpiece year after year.

The 2021 Edition started life in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels and was then transferred into exquisitely rare 30 Year Old Tawny Port Pipes from Graham’s Port. The aged Tawny Port Pipes work in harmony with The Dalmore’s characteristic house style to create a truly masterful whisky that delivers stunning depth and a long, gripping finish. The release is a testament to the longstanding partnership between The Dalmore and Graham’s, allowing The Dalmore’s skilled whisky maker’s access to the rarest of casks.

The Dalmore is globally recognized for their dedication to rich, elegant whiskies aged in some of the most exclusive wine casks in the world (including casks that have previously held 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso Sherry). These casks provide The Dalmore with its signature chocolate orange character.

In a fitting tribute to its rarity and the mastery involved in its creation, The Dalmore 30 Year Old limited release is presented in a stunning framed purple case designed to draw the eye to the masterpiece within. Adding contrast to the darkness of the case, the brand’s iconic Royal silver stag stands proudly on the front, reflecting the brand’s regal heritage and relentless pursuit of excellence for over 180 years.

“This new annual release, although instantly collectible, is intended for whisky fans seeking the finest Scotch whisky to enjoy every year and we’re proud that it is a celebration of our longstanding relationship with Graham’s Port,” explains Whisky Maker Gregg Glass. “The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is the result of our shared patience and dedication to craftsmanship of over more than 180 years, creating an exquisite Single Malt which is divinely decadent with every drop.”

“It’s wonderful to see this series come to life with the launch of The Dalmore 30 Year Old,” says Charles Symington, Head Winemaker for Graham’s. “Our rare 30 Year Old Tawny Port is an exceptional liquid that we are tremendously proud of and its complex palate works beautifully with The Dalmore’s whisky to create something truly special.”

With an ABV of 42.8%, The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition promises decadently sweet aromas of freshly baked brioche and candied orange, followed by a palate packed with rich forest fruits imparted by the Tawny Port Pipes, finished with aromas of vanilla and shaved almonds.

The Dalmore 30 Year Old 2021 Edition is available at fine retailers such as Wally’s Wine & Spirits, Total Wine & More, and with an RSP of $5,500.

Tasting notes:

  • The Aroma: Candied orange, treacle toffee, morello cherries and freshly baked brioche.
  • On the Palate: Black forest fruits, pear tarte tatin and Victorian plums.
  • Finishing Notes: Madagascan vanilla pod, Napoleon cake and shaved almonds.
