Why Buy: Extreme rarity + extraordinary pedigree + top-tier, high-ABV deliciousness and power = must-have collectible.

The Story: These limited releases are hand-selected from The Dalmore's finest casks — chosen, every November, by the whisky makers after a comprehensive review of every cask in the distillery’s historic sandstone warehouse — and we recently secured a small allocation: just 54 cases of the Select Edition 2005 and just 105 cases of the Select Edition 2008. 

Specs: The Dalmore's master distiller, Gregg Glass, has matured these whiskies in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and finished them in hand-selected Matusalem sherry and 15 Year Old Pedro Ximénez sherry casks.

Our Tasting Notes: Rich and full-bodied, the 2005 Select Edition begins, on the nose, with a seductively intense perfume of dark chocolate, coffee beans, and citrus, and opens out into a palate that is no less full and intense, with citrus joined by an array of red fruits, along with oak and spice and, best of all, a soft, almost creamy texture. The 2008 Select Edition is marked by a zestier, sweeter nose — with toffee, vanilla, orange zest making for a heady introduction — and a somewhat richer, softer palate, with hints of honey, ginger, cinnamon, and almond cookies, that extends into the long, toasty, dark chocolatey finish.

Proof: Select Edition 2005, 98.6 (49.3% ABV); Select Edition 2008, 91.6% (45.8% ABV). Non-chill filtered, with no colors or additives.

Fun Fact: Gregg Glass and the Whisky Making Team at The Dalmore have determined that November is the best time of year to assess casks because it’s when the maturing whisky decides to wake up and reveal its truth depth.
