Bring in the New Year with a dram of the Dalmore Eos 59-Year-Old Single Malt. A couple of months back, the Dalmore distillery near Inverness, Scotland made a new record by selling two of the three world’s most expensive Scotch whisky bottles, Dalmore 64 Trinitas for £100,000/$160,100 each. The Dalmore, one of the most famous whisky distilleries around the world, has now added the Eos 59-Year-Old Single Malt to its list of extreme vintages.
Named after the Titan goddess of the dawn, The Dalmore’s Eos captures the essence of mythical properties and divine nature that she represented to our ancestors. Legend has it that Eos opened the gates of heaven every morning, an appropriate portrayal of the opening of the Dalmore’s warehouse doors to release this divine spirit. Like the ancient practice of worshipping the dawn, The Dalmore’s Eos is sure to become a treasured part of whisky history.
On June 7, 1951, Dalmore filled casks #1751 and #1752 and left them to mature. They’re being released now in 20 mouth blown decanters made with Portugese crystal. That decanter is then hand cut and lined with silver highlights. The finishing touch involves encasing the crystal in a solid steel box inlaid with dark timber.
Only 20 special decanters of the Dalmore Eos 59-Year-Old Single Malt will be made available, with each costing £13,000 (about $20,120). [Dalmore]
