Highland-based distillery The Dalmore is putting their six-strong rare single malt collection – The Dalmore Decades No. 6 Collection – up for auction.

The Dalmore Decades No. 6 Collection begins from 1951 – the last whisky created under the tutelage of the Mackenzie family, who owned the distillery for over a century – and ends in 2000.

The Dalmore Decades 1951 Royal Heritage is a single malt matured in twin sherry casks and said to contain notes of ginger.

The Dalmore Decades 1967 Expertly Composed Spirit is a single malt matured in red wine casks and said to contain notes of clementine orange, coffee and muscovado sugar.

The Dalmore Decades 1979 Curating Exquisite Casks is a single malt matured in Oloroso sherry butts and finished in a rare Graham’s Port Vintage 1952 cask.

The Dalmore Decades 1980 Unbroken Chain of Visionaries is a single malt that is said to contain notes of chocolate, cocoa and marzipan.

The Dalmore Decades 1995 The Creation of an Icon was matured in ex-bourbon casks and finished in Tintilla de Rota port pipes.

Finishing off the series is The Dalmore Decades 2000 Into the New Millennium, a single malt matured 20 years in Matusalem Oloroso sherry butts.

The Dalmore Decades No. 6 Collection is currently scheduled to go to auction at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in October 2021 with a percentage of the money raised will go to the V&A Dundee, a design museum in Dundee, Scotland.
