    port finish for a sweet dram!
    roundness, stewed fruits, a little cooked, well-marked wood, a little dry glue and burnt caramel, some herbaceous scents and spices that amplify a little all that, bringing a scent of candied fruit well present.
    The finish is nice, but a bit too monolithic.

    • Nose
      Well wooded, sweet, fruit jam. Very charming, with unexpected floral accents. A smooth hair.
    • Taste
      Herbaceous, floral, it's young! But very sweet thanks to the port.
    • Finish
      Sparkle on the spices for a short time, then goes away hanging a little.

      I had the impression that we tried to dress a young malt with a very active barrel. That goes thanks to the alcoholic title I suppose.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose & Mouth 3/5
      Final 2/5

    A pleasant Dalmore, which the Portfinish stands well to face. Nevertheless, I lack the appropriate depth and complexity. I like the smell better than what you get offered in the mouth and finish. I am happy to have eaten this single malt, it will certainly not be a whole bottle.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Dark fruits, prunes, some citrus, wood notes.
      Harmonically tuned, but at times not very complex (no real depth). The port faces the Dalmore well in this case.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Slightly oily texture. Pleasant mouthfeel. Something youthful can be recognized. Also in the mouth dark fruits, as described here several times, they are clearly reminiscent of forest. In the meantime, the alcohol on the tongue stands out clearly.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium. Appearances of older wood. Again dark fruits. Coffee notes. Light tobacco.

    Messepfützer

    a hammer painter !!
    Dalmore and Port match
    You can chew on it longer
    PLV is OK
    • Nose
      fruity, fat, dark, sweet, heavy, red berries become stronger, becomes harsh and increases, beats something, light lemon ?, the heaviness remains !!
    • Taste
      full and strong, that is on the tongue
      fruity, oak, red berries (so wild berries), heavy sweetness, dark chocolate so 60%, wood that already stores something but does not bum or rot
      will be bitter later
    • Finish
      long
      such a bitter / bitter combo, coffee / espresso, later a tobacco note (so this bitter)

    • Taste
      Powerful. Dark chocolate, citruses, tannic oak and lot of spices.
    • Finish
      Medium, spicy, fruity.
