Where is the new Dalmore line?May 5th, 2009
There’s a new line of Dalmore whiskies out. They were imported to the U.S. So why is it that we can’t find any here?
I reached out to my U.S. contact at White & Mackay, the brand’s owner, to get some answers, and here’s what she had to say:
Distribution is moving slowly. Given the current economic situation, the importer has been reluctant to place large orders. We’ve had a few small shipments come in and we’re out in no time. Another container just left Scotland last week but it will be the end of the month until we see it here in the states.
As an fyi … our priority markets are New York, Florida and Illinois. You’ll find product at retail in those states first. Since product hasn’t shipped since last June, as you can imagine, the entire country is out-of-stock. Filling the pipe line has been our primary concern.
So, if you want to get a bottle from the new line of Dalmore whisky, reach out to a retailer in one of those key markets, and place your order now. The new line is: 12 y/o, Gran Reserva, 15 y/o, King Alexander, 1974 and the 40 y/o. I have not tried these whiskies yet, but should be getting samples soon. I’ll let you know my thoughts when I do.
