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.
The Tweed is the most prolific salmon river in the British isles, flowing through the historic borders.
The Rivers Collection was originally released in 2012 and 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 were originally on the market.
This bottle does not come with the outer box.
