      Strong malty aromas accompanied by sweet dark dried fruit, like freshly baked sultana toast and tarts, with full-bodied vanilla, soft oak, and spice, hints of floral and plum are also captured. 85/100
    • Taste

      A smooth start, with vanilla, cream, and honey taking the lead, followed by warm spices, similar to cinnamon and allspice, accompanied by hints of berry, citrus, ginger, and oak. 83/100

    Three Cask Types

    Dalmore The Trio lends its name from the fact that three different types of casks were used to finish this single malt, namely ex-bourbon, tawny port and Matusalem sherry. It was released to the travelling public in 2019 at airports around the world. I got a sample from my good friend Benny VDB.

    The sweet nose mainly offers red fruit, freshly baked brown bread and soft wood spices. That's followed by sultanas and dried apricot, figs and juicy plums. Vanilla and some caramel will follow later. Pleasant and almost typical of the house, I would say, but it is by no means earth-shattering.

    The body is a bit on the light side, but the taste is good. Nice and sweet on cinnamon, dark and dried fruit, candied orange peels, vanilla, dark honey and even some maple syrup. Strawberry jam and ginger are added. The wood gets a little louder.

    In the medium long finish I get something floral, mixed with cold coffee and cinnamon. Gently drying.

    Quite a nice Dalmore. Between 80 and 100 EUR, which I honestly find a bit on the expensive side for what you get.

    When I bought this bottle around 9 months ago I was rather disappointed and underwhelmed, it's very beige and bland. Being relatively new to quality whisky I felt it was too early to be offering my opinion with a review. During the past months I have had the pleasure of trying a selection of quality drams and coming back to this Dalmore I am still surprised at how bland it is.
    Don't be seduced by the glamour of the bottle!

    The Dalmore The Trio 1 liter is part of a series of The Dalmore Whiskys, the name of which indicates the number of cask types in which this whisky has matured. The Dalmore The Trio consists of three barrels: first-fill ex-bourbon, ex-port and ex-sherry barrels. Thanks to the use of different types of cask, this whisky acquired a wide variety of characteristics that complement each other very subtly.

    Expect the necessary traces of various types of fruit - both fresh and dried - complemented by layers of warming herbs. Gentle flavors merge into a pleasant finish in which fruity influences merge with herbs and sweet tones.
