This expression was bottled at 46.0% alcohol, and has pretty much the same characteristics as the cask strength it is a vigorous and charming single malt. Sweet and aromatic. Some tasting notes suggest a hint of smoke. No way. Think more of the Italian liqueur Limoncello or lemon meringue pie. A great after dinner drink.
The distillery was founded in 1852 by local farmer William Mackenzie and is situated one mile south of Aberlour in the village of Carron. Pronounced Dal-oo-ayn, meaning ‘green vale’ it was built in a hollow between the Ben Rinnes Mountain and the River Spey. It takes its water from the Baillemullich Burn. Dailuaine as is the nearby Cardhu Distillery is a major component of the Johnnie Walker blend. A much under rated malt with a production capacity of 3.20m liters of alcohol. I understand that less than 5% is bottled as a single malt.
The unique and alluring nature of Single Cask releases means we cannot bring you the same delightful elixirs again and again – once the whisky is gone, it’s gone for good. The expressions live as a fragment of the past, never to be repeated.
We invite you to delve into our whisky archives. Explore past releases and bask in amber nostalgia, accompanied with distillery history and tasting notes from Mr. Hart himself.
Hart Brothers can trace their origins in the licensed trade back to the late 19th century when the family were licensed victuallers and publicans in Paisley, the mill town on the outskirts of Glasgow. It was not until 1964 that brothers Iain & Donald Hart incorporated the company as Wine & Spirit Wholesalers and Scotch Whisky Blenders.
Alistair Hart joined the company in 1975 and it was his responsibility as chief blender to source vintage casks of single malt whisky that were not readily available through any specialist whisky shop or online whisky site. Today, we continue to secure special and rare malt and grain whiskies that are further matured and only selected for single cask bottling after careful tasting and consideration.
We always pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
We make sure our customers can best share with us the single malt scotch whisky experience which is why we add nothing to the malt whisky other than the purest water.
