    Dalmore and Port match

    • 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

    • Nose
      Despite the rather average alcohol content, it seems jittery right from the beginning and sharp alcoholic notes make access a bit cumbersome. But then immediately followed by aromatic pickled cherries and a freshly cooked berry compote, to strong cane sugar. Subtle tobacco notes and dried fruit bring a nice thick spice. The oak barrels control dry wood notes that set tart accents. In addition to the ever dominant alcoholic strength, it all looks rather soft and creamy and restrained, it lacks aromatic depth.
    • Taste
      A bit harsh and warming, it starts in the mouth, a strong spiciness and beautiful cooked berries with bright plums bring the same a nice fruitiness forward. But then it is rapidly becoming increasingly harsh, as the oak barrels strongly beat. The sweetness turns into tart and woody notes. However, the ball here is kept fairly flat - I clearly lack more alcohol and age, the flavors rippling quite unspectacular.
    • Finish
      The finish also lacks depth and intensity, it is quite short. Above all, tart fruit notes of ripe berries with beautiful spices such as cardamom and cloves leave a nice fruity spice in the back of the palate, which unfortunately disappears quickly.

  9. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a little more alcoholic than the basics!
    • Nose
      wood, sweet spices, well soaked and cooked fruit
      a little dust and fine herbs
    • Taste
      the fruits on the cherry, the grapes cooked, dried, it is sweet and round in the mouth, the wood comes to support these first sensations, the spices occur afterwards to raise a little more the scents of departure
    • Finish
      average, monolithic but also tenacious

  10. YuraLM scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Wonderful balance, so tempting and fruity. Dalmore style is held out. Only blackberries distinguish this whisky from other
    • Nose
      Very fruity, black berries, Porto wine, dried cherry than plum appears
    • Taste
      Рorto wine, cherry, bilberry, so juicy, tempting
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, coffee, cherry and black berries notes
