  1. cloudyweedram scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A nice to sip, flawless, easy going whisky. May be a little weak and a bit too gentle.
    • Nose
      83 83
      The nose started with pear drop and orange, then there's dried raisins. There's also pencil shaves at the back. So it should contain quite some younger component. Red berries appeared after all these. There's also a little musk. Diluted cola became dominant at the end. Overall the nose is quite nice, but feels inevitably a little bit weak.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The mouthfeel is, surprisingly, quick thick. It also gave some oiliness. Sweet blood organ is the major tone. There's also a hint of fudge, not the salty sort though. With time, the diluted cola also appeared in the taste.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The aftertaste is round, gentle and smooth. The finish is quite long. No off-note was found. There's some espresso at the back, coupled with bitterness that reminiscent sauteed burnt green onion.

    Tasted during a Dalmore Masterclass. Dalmore split profile present. Too many caskfinishes in one dram. Not saying hey here i am. Young and somewhat blend. Again heating the glass up helps. Somewhat boring.
