DALLAS DHU
1921 SINGLE CASK 64 YEAR OLD #296
80.6 PROOF | volume not stated
A remarkable vintage bottling from closed
Speyside distillery, Dallas Dhu. Originally named
“Dallasmore”, the Dallas Dhu distillery was founded
by Alexander Edward in 1898 when he built two
distilleries on his estate – Benromach and Dallasmore.
This liquid was distilled on 16th April 1921 and filled
into Cask no. 296 whilst the distillery was operated
by J.P. O’Brien & Co. Ltd. This is one of the only
examples of Dallas Dhu single malt from this period
before the distillery was purchased by Benmore
Distillers. In 1929, the distillery was mothballed
for seven years before operating sporadically until
economic pressure and an unreliable water supply
forced closure in 1983.
This historic distillery may not produce whisky
anymore but remains a well-preserved time capsule
ensuring the Dallas Dhu legacy under Historic
Environment Scotland’s guardianship. Following
announcements in 2019 that they are seeking out
investment and development ideas, speculation is
that Dallas Dhu distillery could be brought back to
life.
Whisky from this bygone era of production has
become increasingly elusive in recent years, and this
particular rarity has not been seen on the secondary
market for over 25 years. Bottled as a private cask,
most have been consumed over the years and so we
expect this bottle to be exceptionally desirable.
