Dalmore Distillery Constellation Collection - Constellation 1981
Bottled at cask strength, these whiskies comprise Dalmore Distillery Constellation Collection.
Situated along the banks of Cromarty Firth in the Highlands region of Scotland, Dalmore Distillery Distillery was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, who had earned his fortune illegally importing opium from the Far East. In 1886, Matheson sold Dalmore Distillery to Clan MacKenzie, whose century-long stewardship and defining influence over the distillery is still evident today — the 12-point stag adorned on every bottle of Dalmore Distillery Whisky is derived from Clan MacKenzie's coat of arms. Dalmore Distillery Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from plump, golden barley sourced from the rich, coastal soils of the Black Isle. Once the barley has been harvested, it is milled and mashed before being fermented with water drawn from the Cromarty Firth. That water, prior to reaching the firth, travels from Loch Morie through a number of peat bogs and limestone quarries, contributing to a slightly mineral and chewy mouthfeel to the whisky. Once the barley has been fermented, the wash is distilled twice, first through Dalmore Distillery's copper-pot wash stills and then again through its copper-pot spirit stills (the stills date back to 1874). The wash stills have an unusually flat-top, while the spirit stills are equipped with cold water jackets. This unusual equipment — the water jackets rinse cold water near the top of the still — makes it difficult for the lighter elements of the whisky to pass through the still, and ultimately results in a more opulent and rich whisky. Dalmore Distillery Constellation Collection brings together a spectrum of whiskies distilled at Dalmore Distillery distillery between 1964 and 1992. Encased in a bespoke crystal decanter that is engraved with a solid silver stag, each bottle within the collection has been bottled at cask strength, and is as unique as the spirit within.
