This exceptional single malt has been crafted entirely in Matusalem sherry butts from the González Byass bodega in southern Spain.
Matured in a solera system for at least 30 years – Matusalem is a blend of 75% Palomino and 25% Pedro Ximénez grapes, combining to perfection the depth of an aged sherry with the sweetness of a dessert wine.
Matusalem casks are available exclusively to The Dalmore, their influence integral to most of our expressions today. The 2000 is an extremely rare example of a Dalmore fully matured in these exquisite casks.
