The Dalmore 50
An article in the Financial Times on whisky recently discussed the fact that whisky distiller might just be a pretty good occupation to have in these tough economic times. While some whiskies are seen as affordable luxury, this one might be stretching it. The latest edition of The Dalmore is a 50-year old vintage malt that is being released as a limited edition. The blend includes whisky first distilled 140 years ago. A total of 191 hand-blown, Portuguese crystal decanters will be available from luxury retailers and will sell for around £700 for a 10cl bottle (an additional 50 will be sold through travel retail outlets). The drink is said to have tastes of Old English marmalade and fruitcake with an aftertaste of crushed almonds and cinnamon.
