Dalmore Luceo, translated as ‘I shine’ from Latin is the 3rd part of the distillery’s Fortuna Meritas Collection. Again, like many Dalmore expressions, its origins lie in American white oak, but this has been enriched through the use of Apostoles sherry casks. Apostoles is a type of sherry from Gonzales Byass that is designated at VORS: Vinum Optimum Rare Signatum – or Very Old Rare Sherry. Only sherry casks 30 years or older can bear this designation. Luceo comes in a standard 70cl bottle (despite being a travel retail expression), and is bottled at 40%. You can pick a bottle up from Master of Malt for £78.30.
