Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch is a scotch whisky made from a blend of four malts by the Dalmore Distillery in Inverness, Scotland. 

The whisky was produced from four single malt whiskies. Each of the four whiskies came from a different year and these were: 1868, 1876, 1926 and 1939. Only twelve bottles of the scotch whisky were ever made.

Each bottle of the Dalmore 62 Highland Malt Scotch was produced in 1943 and had its own unique label and name. The most expensive of these was named Matheson after Alexander Matheson, the owner of the Dalmore Estate. Another bottle is owned by Whyte and Mackay while the remaining ten are in private collections.

A spokesperson for Whyte and Mackay has said that she believed that the Matheson example of the whisky was the first one to have been opened and tasted by its owner.

Notable sales

In 2005, an un-named businessman purchased a bottle of the 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch for £32,000. This particular bottle was the Matheson example, named after Alexander Matheson, the owner of the Dalmore Estate.

After purchasing the whisky, the businessman and five of his friends proceeded to drink it there and then at the bar.
