Talk about aged whiskies. The Dalmore is launching a 50-year-old Scotch whisky expression to the United Kingdom market.
It contains whisky distilled 140 years ago, according to the company which describes it as one of the world's "oldest" whiskies. It is a limited edition release, with just 191 boxed Portugese crystal decanters being released through the travel retail sector.
It is retailing for about US$1,077 per unit.
"I believe we are the only distillery which has the depth of stock to create such a long nurtured whisky as this," Richard Paterson, Dalmore master distiller, said in a statement.
