    Warm colour and smooth taste. You can feel the sherry, but it's not overwhelming. Raisins and soft vanilla for a warming autumnal dram.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. 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.
