A De­fin­i­tive Lux­ury Malt

The Dal­more 50 year old Single Malt marks a mile­stone

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

The Dal­more re­leased an ex­cep­tion­ally rare 50-year-old single malt, Do­maine Henri Gi­raud cham­pagne-fin­ished, to mark its Mas­ter Dis­tiller Richard Pater­son’s 50th year with the whisky in­dus­try. As the cre­ative force be­hind some of the most iconic and in­no­va­tive re­leases in the world, Richard’s pas­sion and ex­per­tise are un­par­al­leled in the in­dus­try and he has been in­stru­men­tal to the suc­cess of The Dal­more.

The lim­ited edi­tion malt is metic­u­lously crafted in part­ner­ship with four other leg­endary lux­ury houses, each to serve a fit­ting trib­ute to each year of his il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer. Up to 50 de­canters are re­leased, each hand-filled on or­der, The Dal­more 50 has been ma­tured in Amer­i­can white oak, Ma­tusalem oloroso sherry casks from the world-renowned Gon­za­lez Byass Bodega and port Col­heita pipes from the Duoro re­gion of Por­tu­gal. Fi­nally, it un­der­takes a fi­nal fi­nesse for 50 days in rare cham­pagne casks from Do­maine Henri Gi­raud. The cham­pagne cask is one of the re­gion’s hid­den gems and is reg­u­larly lauded by ex­perts.

To hold the com­mem­o­ra­tive whisky, ar­ti­sans at pres­ti­gious French crys­tal house Bac­carat have skill­fully cre­ated crys­tal de­canters, each held within a unique in­ten­sity and aro­matic com­plex­ity to cre­ate an ex­cep­tional ex­pres­sion.

The Dal­more said: “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.”
