The Dalmore 50 er afsluttet i Domaine Henri Giraud champagne fade og er en hyldest til Master Distiller Richard Paterson’s 50 år i whisky industrien.
Der kommer i alt 50 dekanter af denne aftapning, som har ligget på American white oak, Matusalem oloroso sherry casks fra Gonzalez Byass Bodega og port Colheita pipes fra Douro region i Portugal. Til sidst er det så blevet overført i 50 dage på champagne casks fra Domaine Henri Giraud.
Paterson did not select the champagne cask by chance. Considered to be one of the region’s hidden gems, Domaine Henri Giraud family estate is regularly lauded by experts from around the globe and is one of the only champagne houses to still mature their wines in casks. The casks selected have a unique intensity and aromatic complexity, giving Paterson the final flourish of wood needed to create this exceptional expression.
Richard Paterson, Master Distiller hos The Dalmore udtaler: “This is a special year for me so I chose to finesse this whisky in a champagne cask, as this magnificent drink is synonymous with celebratory occasions.
“Bringing the champagne together with Matusalem oloroso sherry and port is perhaps the greatest example to date of our ability to innovate in both maturation and cask finishing while preserving the signature flavours of The Dalmore.
“This whisky is exceptional, as are the luxurious and sophisticated finishes applied by the craftsmen at Domaine Henri Giraud, Baccarat, Linley and Hamilton & Inches. They are true masters of their art and it is a pleasure to have worked with them to bring the 50 year old to life in such a magnificent way.”
