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 â€˜Connoisseurs Choiceâ€™. 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.
