Dalmore 1966 Constellation


The Dalmore 45-year old 1966 vintage is second in a range of 21 individual releases. Aged for 37 years in American White Oak Bourbon cask #7, finished for 6 years in a Matusalem Olorose Sherry Butt and 2 additional years in distillery run Bourbon barrels. Limited to 237 bottles.

The Dalmore Distillery was established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East. It sits on the banks of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the Black Isle, the "big meadowland", from which it takes its name. The distillery was bought by the MacKenzie family in 1886.

It has been passed down that in 1263, a predecessor of the Clan MacKenzie saved King Alexander III from a rampaging stag whilst out hunting. In reward, the King allowed him to bear the Royal emblem of a 12-pointed stag in his coat of arms. Recently, the MacKenzie motto Luceo non Uro or I shine, not burn has also been taken up by Dalmore.

In a renewed effort to popularise the brand, the packaging was recently re-designed, which includes the addition of the Dalmore's "twelve-pronged stag" from the clan crest on each bottle.

The distillery is best known for producing a single malt scotch whisky of the same name. Its location and flavour qualify it as a "Highland malt". The Dalmore distillery is owned and operated by Whyte and Mackay Ltd, which is owned by United Breweries Group, a large Indian conglomerate.
