Eilean a' Cheo gave this whisky 85 points

Very sweet, light and velvet. A mix of banana, chestnut and mocha puree.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Grasig, Heunoten, Vanille, etwas Mandelkernbitterkeit, Honig, blumig. Ein wenig nach Weingummi? Doch, da scheinen gute Weinfässer ihren Einfluss ausgeübt zu haben. Jedenfalls ein ungetrübter Genuss!

Taste

herrlich angenehm ungezähmt!

Finish

leichter Geschmack nach Kohle (habe meine Notizen gemacht, bevor ich die untenstehende Einschätzung von Serge offenbar für eine weit ältere Version gelesen habe...), Orange, Maggikraut und nicht völlig selbstverständlich auch die einleitenden Geruchsbestandteile in der Flüssigkeit aufgelöst.

Comments

Das waren noch Zeiten, als man im Duty-Free als Standardtropfen eine solche Trouvaille erhielt!

The whiskyfun review posted here is not for this bottle... This one was bottled in the early 1990's, with a screw cap... The bottling from the end of the seventies has a cork and is not present on the base...

Dalmore 12 yo (43%, OB, bottled 1977) 1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg1star2c.jpg Colour: amber. Nose: ah yes, this is even better. Some superb waxy notes, furniture polish, notes of Sauternes wine, beeswax, flowers (peony, lilac). Quite complex! Something superbly resinous, fireplace, ashes, mustard sauce, sherry. Strong honey (chestnut). It gets smokier and smokier (coal fire). Very, very nice. Mouth: simply fantastic. A superb creaminess, very coating, with an extraordinary balance. Orange liqueur and resin, lavender honey and eucalyptus, natural tar liqueur and mastic. Some marzipan, orgeat syrup, crystallised fruits (kumquats, oranges, tangerines). Gets quite smoky, with some notes of burnt cake. And what a beautiful and compact finish, on orange and lemon marmalades. Just a superb malt, extremely drinkable. No less than 92 points.
