Whyte & Mackay, has today announced the launch of a new 21 Year Old expression from its Highlands based Dalmore Distillery, which is said to become the pinnacle of the brands Principle Collection.
The Dalmore 21 Year Old (43.8% ABV) is a single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, before being aged further in casks that previously held 30 Year Old Matusalem Oloroso Sherry.

The Dalmore 21 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of dark bitter chocolate, overripe Seville oranges, Colombian coffee, vanilla, toffee apple and pecan pie on the nose. Followed by notes of sweet liquorice stick, grippy Black Forest fruits, roasted walnuts, peaches in a thick syrup, ginseng, pear tarte tatin, Sanguinello blood oranges and thick marzipan on the palate.
The Dalmore Principal Collection is an exceptional collection of eight single malt whiskies, each an expression of The Dalmore’s signature depth and finesse. The Dalmore 21 Year Old will become the pinnacle of the collection that features the iconic The Dalmore King Alexander III and The Dalmore 18 Year Old.
Commenting on the launch, Gregg Glass, Master Whisky Maker, said: “The Dalmore 21 Year Old is a result of patience and craftsmanship which we’re tremendously proud to celebrate. We created this spirit for those looking for the finest of whiskies, whilst also creating an opportunity for those embarking on their whisky journey to try something truly inspirational and remarkable from The Dalmore.”
Limited to 8,000 bottles, The Dalmore 21 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £575.00.
