Dalmore’s signature Single Malt finish in a quintet of five cask types for a fruit-forward complexity.

Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East, founded the Dalmore Distillery in 1839. The Dalmore changed owners many times throughout the years, with Clan Mackenzie being in control the longest.

They are in the Northern Highlands, halfway between Inverness and Tain. All of Dalmore’s core Whiskies start in ex-Bourbon barrels. What sets them apart is the finishing and consistent experimentation with wood. Each of their releases is treated to a special maturation and finishing prized by Scotch-lovers world wide.

The Dalmore The Quintet was one of those short-run, travel-retail exclusive deals. That means it’s hard to get from "normal" liquor outlets. But we, being who we are, take such things are challenges to be overcome.

The Quintet begins in the normal manner — Dalmore’s signature Single Malt matured in ex-Bourbon casks. But then — since "quintet" mean "five" — the Spirit is finish is a series of five different wood casks, In this case that means 30-year-old Matusalem Sherry casks, 10-year-old Port casks, Muscatel casks, Malmsey Madeira casks, and finally in Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon casks.
