    From Cadenhead’s ‘Wood Range’. What doesn’t fall under this range – gin?

    N: A sweetish malty [butterscotch] & dried fruit-tannic pong alongside a large heap of husky & nutty [pecan] < wood-shavings indicates there’s been some vibrant cask action along the way, probably towards the end as a finish. Not particularly my style but like many naked/raw high-abv malts, this one needs some taming. It’s not long before sweeter cakes, confectionary and rich vanilla icecream join the party. The butterscotch covered in sawdust remains a constant niggle.
    T: Crickey, that is some vibrant sherry cask activity! A finish or full virgin cask maturation is the question? [Subsequent research tells me there was a 23-month sherry hogshead finish]. The middle talks of malty-distillate putty, a few plastics, fruit-wax and plenty more wood shavings. Overall it’s rather astringent and struggles to blossom.
    F: Takes oodles of water to coax out more of those confectionary subtleties from the palate [as well as more pecan and butterscotch action from the nose,…], but this one is adamant to remain rather warm and lively. One that’ll warm your cockles around the campfire on a brisk autumnal night, that’s for sure.

    C: Very contemporary. One to shock a regular Dalmore drinker out of their habitual comfort zone. With thanks to tOMoH.

    A dram which is very much alcohol driven, the ABV doesn't shy away during any part of the experience.
    Nothing particularly special or appealing about this whisky, quite a bog standard single cask release.
    • Nose
      Malty and dusty, think of red apples that have been left in a dusty sack covered with cobwebs. There's something winey about this, slight stringent grape aroma. Some cask influence in there with wood chips but also a very obvious alcohol note hovering.
    • Taste
      Very sweet on arrival, sharp and bitter green grapes, even some lemons and line. Its a hot one, tongue is certainly feeling the tingle of this one. Palate picks up some of the malt from the nose in the way of sourdough bread.
    • Finish
      Finish is dry leaving the tongue standing on edge with the alcohol. Some citrus oils come into play, some of the sourdough and a touch of the wood chip.

    Pleasant sherried Dalmore, but expensive even as an IB.
    • Nose
      Floral. Spicy oak, yellow fruits, sherry and butter caramel.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Dry wood, honey, pepper, orange peel and fat sherry.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, fruity.

    In a sherry cask since August 2017.
    I really like this kind of Dalmore!
