The Constellation Collection

The Dalmore 1972 (cask no. 1)

The Dalmore has nurtured a relationship with the González Byass bodega for over 100 years, gaining exclusive access to their oldest and most precious casks.

To nurture this noble spirit Richard Paterson hand selected the finest Apostoles oloroso sherry cask which gifted the spirit with notes of fruit cake, orange rind and black maraschino cherries.

After 36 long years maturing in our deepest darkest warehouses, the spirit was carefully transferred into Kentucky bourbon casks for a further three years.

This secondary maturation enhanced the whisky further, giving it an indefinable elegance.

Volume: 70cl ABV: X

The Flavour Profile

The Colour

A shimmering tapestry of copper

The Nose

Tangy Seville oranges laced with honeycomb, sandalwood and vanilla are followed by caramelised apricots, rose hip syrup and Ogen melon

The Taste

Rich fruitcake, spicy oloroso sherry, orange rind and black maraschino cherries are replaced by toffee, ginger spice, chocolate mousse and Marsala

I selected this Apostoles oloroso sherry cask to showcase its delicate style. It still adds a weighty charm to the whisky but gifts it with just a whisper of caramelised apricots, ginger and frangipan notes
