Calling all whisky enthusiasts! This rare bottle of Aurora from the Dalmore distillery, comes in a bottle made from the finest Portuguese lead crystal, adorned with a solid silver stag and neck collar engraved with the Aurora symbol. And if you think that’s something to talk about, wait until you feast your eyes on the delicately crafted carbon fiber case the bottle of malt is stored in.
The carbon fiber case is said to be a “meticulously crafted bespoke lacquered carbon fibre case” The case comes with a solid silver stag and engraved with the Aurora symbol as well. Aged 45 years and set to cask on April 29th of 1964, this fine malt is only making its way to a mere 200 decanters.
“The Northern Lights, is a shimmering kaleidoscope of colours that twist and turn in Northern skies. A phenomenon often witnessed from The Dalmore distillery over looking the Black Isle and the inspiration for the Dalmore Aurora, a sublime 45 year old single malt, that is as rare and magical as the scintillating spectrum that dances on a star-speckled canvas,” boasts Dalmore which is based in Scotland.
The Whisky itself is described as
“a dynamic fusion of aromas of blood oranges, crushed apples and pear, and hints of Bulgarian roses, jasmine and coriander. A heart of ripe mandarins, kumquats and pineapple is intertwined with highlights of Madagascan vanilla, creamy caramel and darkest Swiss chocolate.”
