New Dalmore “Mackenzie”February 18th, 2010
I was just invited to the launch of a new Dalmore whisky on March 17th. Whyte & Mackay are keeping Richard Paterson & Co. very busy creating new whiskies. (That’s a good thing!)
I am still digging out from my piles of mail and email, but here’s what my invite said:
Richard Paterson and Caberfeidh, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, invite you to join them at the launch of The Dalmore Mackenzie, a unique single malt celebrating the daring spirit and courage of The Mackenzie family, owners of The Dalmore distillery for almost a century.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to attend. Either way, I would imagine that I’ll get a sample to review.
I’ll provide more information as I get it, so stay tuned. And if anyone else knows more info, please post it up.
Update: The information I have says this about this new whisky. It’s a 1992 vintage, matured initially in American white oak for 11 years, then transferred to port pipes from Oporto for a further 6 years. Bottled at 46%.
