Whyte & Mackay Travel Retail have revealed three new, permanent global travel retail (GTR) exclusive additions from its prestigious single malt brand, The Dalmore. All set to debut in July 2020.
The three new expressions – The Trio, The Quartet and The Quintet – feature a 3-cask, 4-cask and 5-cask finish respectively and are inspired by the iconic single malt whisky King Alexander III which, with its pioneering 6-cask finish, showcases The Dalmore’s unbroken vision to pioneering exquisite cask curation.
They will be available on GTR shelves from July 2020, with airport retail store activations planned from September 2020.
Details of the new expressions are as follows:
The Trio (1 litre, RSP £69.999 / €78.99/ $94.99)) has three cask finishes of first fill ex-bourbon, 10 Year Old Tawny Port and 30 Year Old Matusalem sherry. This captivating whisky has a flavour profile of ripe plums and berries with hints of sweet spices.
Meanwhile, The Quartet (1 litre, RSP £84.999 / €95.99 / $109.99) is refined and fragrant. Finished in four casks -first fill ex-bourbon, 30 Year Old Matusalem sherry, 30 Year Old Apostoles sherry and Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a rich flavour profile of red grapes and juicy raisins with whispers of chocolate and liquorice.
The Quintet (70cl, RSP £99.990 / €112.990 / $129.99) boasts a five cask finish in casks that previously held sweet and rare Moscatel, Malmsey Madeira, 30 Year Old Matusalem sherry, 10 Year Old Port and Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon. With flavours of exotic fruits drenched in maple syrup and coffee notes this single malt is a majestic drinking experience.
The packaging of The Trio, The Quartet and The Quintet has been designed to highlight the premium quality of The Dalmore, with a larger, more prominent metallic Royal Stag emblem adorning each bottle – The Dalmore’s iconic graphic device. This will maximise stand out of the bottles on travel retail shelves.
Although not a GTR exclusive, the six-cask finish King Alexander III expression, which boasts a unique assemblage of six exquisitely curated cask finishes, is already available in travel retail (70cl, RSP £180 / $239). It is the hero of The Dalmore range, and features refreshed packaging with a larger stag logo, enhanced box and premium minimalist design.
