Dalmore 2001 Connoisseurs Choice Single Highland Malt Whisky.

70cl/46% In the mid-1960s Gordon & MacPhail took the unprecedented step of launching a range of single malts under the brand name ‘Connoisseurs Choice’. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland. TASTING NOTE Colour: Pale Straw.
