The Dalmore Distillery Exclusive Vintage 2000

If you will be lucky enough to visit The Dalmore distillery this summer then look out for their latest limited edition distillery bottling, The Dalmore Distillery Exclusive 2017 Vintage 2000.

Available exclusively from the Dalmore Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, it was distilled in 2000 then matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels, it was then finished in hand selected Californian Merlot Barriques for five years before bottling at 52% ABV.

Released during Master Distiller Richard Patersonís 50th year in the whisky industry, the Distillery Exclusive is a showcase of Richardís craftsmanship and, in particular, his pioneering approach to the art of maturation and cask finishing.

Richard Paterson, Master Distiller commented: "The Dalmore Distillery, located on the picturesque shore of the Cromarty Firth in the Scottish Highlands, is my go-to place for inspiration and reflection. It is here that I first considered how best to combine one of my favourite red wines with the distilleryís deep and complex new make spirit.

"The Dalmore Distillery Exclusive Vintage 2000 is the result of these efforts, offering a harmonious balance between the sweet notes of the Californian Merlot and the signature flavours of our own Dalmore house style. Bottled at natural strength and with notes of chocolate truffle, coffee and black toffee, this yearís exclusive distillery release is a treat worth snapping up for any visitors to our distillery."

Up to 270 bottles will be available to purchase, priced at £200. The Dalmore Distillery Exclusive Vintage 2000 is available from The Dalmore Distillery at Alness, Ross-shire, Scotland, IV17 0UT.

You will also find the current Dalmore whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
