New Street Wine Shop host exclusive Dalmore Whisky tasting

On Thursday 16th October, New Street Wine Shop will host an exclusive Dalmore Whisky tasting experience with Dalmore’s Master Distiller and renowned whisky blender, Richard ‘The Nose’ Paterson.

Starting at 6.30pm, guests will be welcomed with a complimentary tipple to cleanse the palate before Richard begins the in-depth whisky tasting. Exploring four different blends of Dalmore’s exceptional award-winning whiskies, including Dalmore 15, King Alexander III, Cigar Malt Reserve and Dalmore 25, guests will also be gifted a bottle of the latter to take home with them, of which there are only a few hundred available in the UK. 

All of Dalmore’s revered malt Scotch whiskies undergo a unique distillation process before maturing in bespoke oak casks. Paterson is then responsible for the fusion before using the best wood from some of the world’s most famous wineries to give an exceptional finish. The rare Dalmore 25 in particular is matured initially in American white oak, before being divided into hand-sourced 25YO sweet Palomino Fine sherry butts and Dalmore 1980 first-fill bourbon casks. The whiskies are then married together in bourbon barrels before being transferred in Portuguese Tawny Port pipes, giving it an exceptional triple wood finish. The final product boasts aromas of marzipan, vanilla pods and fig cake, with hints of orange peel, liquorice and sweet damsons on the palate, and a finish of maple syrup and spiced gingerbread. 

Tickets to this exclusive and extraordinary event are priced at £620 per person, including the intimate tasting with Dalmore’s Master Distiller, perfectly-paired canapés and a bottle of the rare Dalmore 25 year old whisky to take home (retail price £780).
