Cross Reference To Delivery Table: 10.00

1 bottle Dalmore 50 Year Old. Bottled 1978. In bespoke lockable wooden presentation box accompanied by branded glass stopper. Driven cork with banded wax seal. One of 60 hand-cut crystal decanters. 52%. Level high shoulder. Good condition.

Highlighting our July auction is the magnificent Dalmore 50 year old.  This whisky is regarded as the best Dalmore ever bottled and probably the best 50 year old in the World. This was distilled during the 1920s and bottled back in 1978. There's very few whiskies distilled in this period combined with such great age. Dalmore, along with a handful of other distilleries revolutionised the whisky industry and demonstrated how great certain whiskies can be at such an age. Even today there's distilleries that have never reached this age. Not that all whiskies need to be old to be good! What's interesting about this whisky is the fact it's bottled at a hefty 52%, which is very unusual for such an old whisky. All this history is wrapped up in a hand-cut crystal decanter and bespoke wooden presentation box which is accompanied with a certificate of authenticity hand signed by Richard Patterson. Due to the value of this whisky until recently, there's been plenty of these opened and with only 60 produced makes this one of the hardest official Dalmore's to find nowadays.

Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.

If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.

Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
