The Constellation Collection

The Dalmore 1989 (cask no. 6)

From its inception in 1839, The Dalmore has been maturing whiskies for longer in a greater variety of casks.

In the 1800’s we were maturing whisky for 12 years when three was considered the norm. We did this because we believe that the hand of time is needed to nurture and gift the spirit with a rich and complex character.

This whisky has benefitted from 17 long years in a freshly emptied bourbon cask, giving it notes of soft vanilla, pear and apple. For its final finesse, it was transferred into a Matusalem sherry cask reserved exclusively for The Dalmore, gifting flavours of balsamic, orange and black treacle to this masterpiece

The Flavour Profile

The Colour

Amber gold and straw yellow with shimmering highlights

The Nose

Marzipan, spicy cinnamon and buttered asparagus tips linger before bakewell tart, freshly cut rye bread, lime marmalade and vanilla pods bring it to a close

The Taste

Ripe pineapple, Ogen melon, peach syrup and figs. Whispers of fresh ground coffee, balsamic vinaigrette, orange rind and black treacle bring it to a perfect conclusion

I selected this whisky purely because of its rich flavours. Hedonistic notes of ground coffee, liquorice and black treacle are gifted over time to create a truly wonderful masterpiece
