About The Dalmore 1979 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cask 594)

The Dalmore 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. The water, prior to reaching the firth, travels from Loch Morie through a number of peat bogs and limestone quarries, and contributes a slightly mineral and chewy mouthfeel to the whisky.

The Dalmore 1979 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cask 594) is part of the distillery's Constellation collection. The whisky was distilled in 1977 — the same year that Trivial Pursuit launched and that Voyager I sent back photos of Jupiter's rings to NASA — and was matured for 33 years in casks composed of American white oak and Quercus Alba (a type of North American hardwood). The whisky has a honey gold color, along with an aroma of peaches, nectarines and vanilla. Hints of pears, apricots and lemongrass are also present on the nose, and give way to notes of pineapple, tropical fruits, caramel fudge, lemon cake and macaroons on the tongue. The finish is long and seductive, with notes of Turkish Delight, kiwi and spices.

About The Dalmore

Situated along the banks of Cromarty Firth in the Highlands region of Scotland, Dalmore 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. Prior to reaching the firth, however, the water travels from Loch Morie through a number of peat bogs and limestone quarries, and thus, contributes 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 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.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
