I am not entirely sure what sets apart a £10,000 ($16,000) whisky from a £40 ($64) a bottle whisky. Will the price tag make that much difference to quality? Greater and more experienced minds than mine will debate that one. Dalmore reckon:
`The international market for high-end luxury products which have an investment value is buoyant – and the finest whiskies are playing an increasingly dominant role in this sector,` says The Dalmore`s Brand Director, David Robertson.
So maybe it’s investment value rather than a value expressed on flavour alone? Given that only 12 decanters of the Sirius expression from Dalmore will be produced – I guess there is scarcity factor which adds to the £10,000 price tag. Sirius will only be available to private buyers and through a limited network of World Duty Free (WDF) stores.
The Dalmore`s 1951 Sirius Vintage is a single-cask, single malt whisky, with a cask strength of 45%. So it’s pretty potent. The Dalmore Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, says:
`Distinguished and elegant, age has gracefully finessed this brilliant expression. Sirius is, quite simply, one of the world`s most perfect whiskies.`
