  1. Highlander65 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted together with the 15 year old, which is better
    • Nose
      Less "dark" perfume than 15yo, evidently younger, there is a slight hint of fresh fruit, pleasant but a little flat
    • Taste
      In the mouth it redeems itself, spicier than 15yo, sparkling candy, rye effect, slightly balsamic
    • Finish
      Discreet final

    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.

    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.

    • 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

    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

    A heavy, dark paint that you can probably enjoy in an old leather armchair in an old gentleman's room. Maybe a cigar with it?
    • Nose
      82 82
      Dark, heavy fruit notes dominate (dark, almost black cherries) but also a sweet milk chocolate behind it. A slight alcoholic note can unfortunately also be heard. In addition leather / wood polish.

      When I smell the second time, I also notice a slight smoke and oak furniture
    • Taste
      82 82
      A taste that reminds me of Mon Cherry. So again the cherries and the chocolate. A strong paint with dark heavy aromas.
    • Finish
      84 84
      In the finish it becomes dry. But still keeps its sweetness.

  7. Danlow scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Overall, it's a good standard whisky.
    It won't stay in my mind that much, let alone buy it later. I just wanted to try a Dalmore and have the decorative bottle on the shelf.
    He tries to depict a dark, old malt, but he can't. It has plums, cherries, raisins and a little bit of wood. It is also sweet, forest honey and caramel. That was it already. It is quite flat, but pleasant and easy to drink.
    It should cost a maximum of 50 €, more likely 35 to 45 €, so that I would dare to do it again. With what it costs now, I would rather always add 30 to 40 € and then get a really good 18 from another distillery.
