    I am honest and can say that I expected more of this dram. It is not bad but for 90€ you get much better whiskies today. I cannot recommend the Dalmore 18 to be fair!
    • Nose
      Fresh & Fruity, the alcohol is too dominant from my point of view. I smell peaches & oranges 
    • Taste
      Due to the strong alcohol smell I did not expect a smooth taste but it is there - additionally I get cinnamon and raisins in the mouth. A bit like Christmas time... 
    • Finish
      The finish is smooth but extremely short and nothing special to tell about it.

    Colour: Old gold-amber.
    Nose: Fresh, fruity, mellow, on almonds, tangerine, with some
    peach and winey flavours, with a hint of smoke.
    Taste: Spicy, peppery, round, slightly rubbery and winey, on
    tangerine, red fruits and some smoke. The finish is of medium length, round,
    slightly bitter, rubbery and winey, on tangerine and some cinnamon powder.
    General Impression: A good and pleasant Dalmore, but it would
    benefit from a few extra % abv.
