  1. ricallende scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    If you are being introduced in whisky culture you may consider this as a solid entry level sherried whisky. Nice for beginners
    • Nose
      Sweet sugar, caramel, toffee, nuts, dried fruits
    • Taste
      Sweet sugar again and caramel, weak nuttiness, oak spices and something bitter in the background
    • Finish
      Short finish, lingering gentle bitterness, oak spices.

  2. larswehmeier scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Voluminous, mature impression in the nose. Whole orange - the famous Dalmore citrus fruit. Pleasant sherry fruitiness behind it. A touch of oak.
    • Taste
      Mild and creamy on the tongue. Again a lot of orange. With a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Remember Jaffa Cake. A little bitter coffee. Overall, spicy rather than sweet.
    • Finish
      Medium. Warming. Dark.

  6. p4blo scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    There's a little bit of everything, but not enough of anything interesting and this makes this dram a rather weak and disappointing one in this price range.
    • Nose
      Faint notes of oranges, vanilla, apples, sugar and some darker fruity elements smelled through a thin layer of cardboard.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, but not too distinctive. There are some sherry cask elements with toffee, prunes, also some pears and vanilla, but overall it's quite flat and bland.
    • Finish
      Short, on the fruitiness overlapping from the taste and the slightest spiciness.

  7. pianoman scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet. Citrus, apple, peach. Sherry. Vodka.
    • Taste
      Peach. Sherry. Light spice with a little clove and cinnamon.

  10. domani scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    The nose is dominated by the malt sweetness. The taste of this whisky remains very pale and without any special properties - 23.12.2014
    • Nose
      Malt sweet, apricot, lemon, nuts
    • Taste
      Sweet malt aroma with some spice but otherwise hardly anything to discover
    • Finish
      Short
