Dalmore 1972 / 39 Year Old / Constellation Collection
Distilled 31st May 1972 and filled into a Gonzalez Byass "Apostoles" oloroso sherry butt then left to mature for 36 years. Finally transferred in 2009 into a freshly emptied Kentucky bourbon barrel before it was bottled in 2012.
Only 119 bottles have been filled of this rather special, 39 year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky.

Colour: A shimmering tapestry of brunneous ochre and copper
Nose: Rich and positive sensual and warm with a rhapsody of chic and enticing notes. Tempered by cider apples, crushed almonds, cape gooseberry and mangoes. Tangy Seville oranges laced with honeycomb, sandalwood and vanilla form this first layer of unashamed opulence. This is soon followed on by a wave of caramelised apricots, rose hip syrup and ogen melon. Tempered by ginger.
Taste: Bursting with a bountiful power-house of pleasure as complex flavours enrich the palate with moist fruit cake, spicy oloroso sherry, orange rind and black maraschino cherries. As these enchanting flavours disperse they are quickly replaced by a barrage of toffee, ginger spice, chocolate mousse marinated with forest fruits and marsala. Tangy ground coffee, baked wheat toast, muscovado and frangipan conclude this treasure chest of pure liquid gold.
