Dalmore 1963 15 Year Old

This is a bottle of Dalmore 1963, bottled in 1978, 75cl, 45.7% ABV 

It is a legend of the whisky world with an amazing 91 points from Whisky Fun:

Dalmore 15 yo 1963/1978 (80 proof, Cadenhead Dumpy) 
Colour: pale white wine. Nose: a very ‘dumpy’ style. That is to say: waxes, hessian, olive oil, minerals, chiselled and petrolic. A riesling drinkers whisky. And, in this case, a riesling makers whisky as well, given that this bottle came from Olivier. Wee touches of crisp, waxy cereals, sunflower oil, dried thyme, canvas and chalk. Develops along a rather chiselled, precise and slightly austere line. However, the profile is globally very lively and compelling. More cereals and muesli emerge in time along with grapefruit pith and lemon peel. Mouth: mustard seeds, slightly smoky barley, pink lemonade and salted liquorice. Indeed, the coastal aspects are louder and more vivid on the palate with these notes of sardines in oil, dried seaweed and miso broth from some excellent ramen. White flowers and tart gooseberry as well. Lovely! Finish: Long and full of salty, brittle minerals, mineral oils and sharp white pepper with a little fresh lemon juice. Comments: Yet another terrific old Cadenhead Dumpy. Extremely close to the distillate. A pure and beautiful old school Dalmore, delightfully un-ruined by wine cask bollocks.
SGP: 662 - 91 points.

Condition

This bottle is in good condition. It shows some light marks (noted below) which are acceptable given the age of the bottle. The price of the bottle reflects the condition but this would still make an excellent addition to any collection.

Slight dent to capsule.

Dalmore

Dalmore is a distillery with a monumental reputation as a collectors malt alonside the likes of Macallan and Glenlivet, despite being a smaller output compared to those distilleries. Dalmore has had a wonderful history as a whisky – hunting accidents, land betrothment, a sea mine manufacturing plant, being partially rebuilt due to an incident with a mine and becoming one of the first super premium whisky brands. Before the money went crazy with Macallan, Dalmore held records for the most expensive whiskies for sale and they do continue to compete at that same level to this day.
