    It's a solid release, but for me as a peat fan it falls a but short, though it is interesting enough to be enjoyable despite that.

      Musty, fruity, malt.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Quite a bit going on. It’s fruity, nutty, a bit sweet, spices and herbs, and they dance back and forth in prominence.
    • Finish

      Nutty, warm. A bit like chocolate. It tapers down after a short while to a mild nut flavor with some spices there now and again. Medium-long.

    This Dalmore first matured in American white oak barrels for 14 years. It was then filled into Matusalem sherry casks for another 3 years. It receives the finishing touch in the last 12 months in standing sherry casks.

    Very ripe and dark fruits come to mind. Somewhat towards (black) currants and blackberries. In addition, nice dark chocolate and delicate spice and a pleasant hint of herbs. Somehow looks "noble" and ripe. I like it surprisingly well after the rather disappointing King Alexander!

    1576) The Dalmore, 18YO (2019)

    An old sample that I asked Aaryan Ray Kharel to packed and lalamove to me during the MCO 1.0 last year. A year passed, the deer emblem stays sparkling, but MCO progressed to 3.0.
    • Nose
      N- Phew, at a mere 43%, the weight and penetration are packed with hits of sharp citrus fruits. Active scents of wood that may not be at a fine balanced, but you can feel the boldness that it try to shows you what a wild charging deer he is indeed. Mellowed down with classy fig, hawthorn, before wood resinous and beany nuance developed. (88/22)
    • Taste
      P- Very sherry, with lushes of olorosso dryness and drifts of herbs. Tend to get spicy along rock candy. Oily old nut, that may not be too pleasant at times. (86/20)
    • Finish
      F- Medium long, beany coffee tartness with raisin sweet. Leave with a sharp sour stinks at the back of the throat. Ginger warm. Oaky mouth coat. (85/19)

      B/B- 86/20 I do enjoy the prancing aroma on the nose. Bold mouthful but feel missing the focal pint.

  13. Malthead19 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    - a very mature, delicious sherry malt
    - has a very light, soft mouthfeel (almost too thin for some people => ideal for beginners)
    - for everyone super drinkable, very elegant, typical gentleman whisky
    - a bit more sophisticated and better (more elegant) than the 15 but not worth twice the price
    • Nose
      very mild, fruity, subtle, sweet, berries, sweet fruits / sherry
    • Taste
      extremely soft approach, very elegant, filigree, sweet and fruity, sweetish sherry taste, subtle oak in the background, somewhat bitter at the end
    • Finish
      very soft, medium-long fruity finish;
      medium-long woody-fruity, slightly bitter finish

    it takes time in the glass, but then it develops many aromas, very full and round. The sweet flavors predominate clearly.
    I can't find the cinnamon as stated by the manufacturer in my 2019 bottling
    • Nose
      86 86
      After a few minutes in the glass there is a very clear sweet note, caramel and chocolate rise in the nose as well as spicy oak, nut flavors can be heard, later slightly fruity with plums I would say dark chocolate comes through.
      To find the sherry you have to hold your nose deep into the glass.
    • Taste
      86 86
      sues with chocolate and caramel, also here the spicy oak notes, also vanilla comes out. Then it gets slightly spicy, which then turns into a taste of dried fruit, some nuts and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      long with spicy oak followed by sweet caramel and nuts, some chocolate is also included, here again the dried fruit and the plum.

    During a Dalmore Masterclass. Heating up the glass helps a lot, but still a bit underwhelming. Feels younger than the stated age. Quility is good, balance is good, price too high.

  19. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      spices, candied fruits, woody and caramel
      back toasted, a little chocolate, a little noble mold
    • Taste
      roundness in the mouth, almost creamy,
      full of macerated fruits, lemon with tangerine, some peach, white grapes, pear all cooked with the syrup that emerges
      grassy and floral presence, very fragrant
      the wood comes back later with the caramel and a little coffee.
      a little dried almonds in the end
    • Finish
      long enough in fact, but very monolithic, not to get lost.

  20. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    a sweet yet to be tasted, to believe that I wanted to taste the pastilles valda of a neighboring distillery!
    pastry flavor, it's round, a little spicy, just to potentiate the aromas, there is vanilla returned to the corner of the fire, buttered liquid caramel.
    A little dried herbs, woody in place, it's still very creamy, sweet!
    The fruits are cooked and added to caramel, on mandarins, pears, white grapes.
    The finish is rather long, a plus in view of the degree of alcohol.
