Dalmore is undoubtedly the prize single malt in the Whyte & Mackay portfolio. This was not always the case though. The blenders purchased it from the Mackenzie family in 1960, having been long-standing customers. Due to the long-running importance of it to their blends, their distillery bottlings of its single malt were limited to a 12 year old expression. Nowadays however, it is positioned as a luxury brand, rubbing shoulder with the likes of Macallan, and is globally recognised.
This set is comprised of the original Dee Dram bottling in 2010 (a 12 year old limited edition released to raise funds for the river Dee Salmon Trust), the four bottlings from the first 'season' in 2011 & the four bottlings from the second 'season' 2012.
It is incredibly rare to find a collection comprising all of the rivers bottlings.
The Rivers Collection included four bottlings named after four famous Scottish Salmon rivers, The Dee, The Spey, The Tweed and The Tay.In recognition of the various trusts a donation was made to the Tay Foundation, Tweed Foundation, Spey Foundation and Dee Trust when these bottles we're originally on the market.
The River Dee is revered the world over for its picturesque beauty, clean crisp waters and of course its exceptional salmon fishing.
