    My first dalmunach, since I am an imperial fan, I am also very curious, and what better way to open in the Coronapocene when all companies are closed and you are at home?

    Update .. With time in the bottle, the 1st octave gains in harmony and fruitiness despite its age and the coppers lose their taste over time in the bottle. Something. devaluation

    Over time, fruity acidity comes through, as with some imperial ones

    Is the 3rd known dalmunach bottling after the distillery Reserve and the Octave.

      What kind of barrel is that ... Not old, but it is so strongly based on Madeira wine .. Unbelievably active barrel, it shouldn't stay inside any longer. You could almost think that it is not whisky at all, so fruity like peach and grapes. You can tell alcohol in the nose ... but it works. Even some wood and a little malt come through. Very well chosen

      With water .. the taste remains the same, it becomes rounder and softer. Now there is clearly added vanilla. The Madeira is going back a bit .. Fits.

      Fruit bomb squared. Can even be sipped with 61%, but carefully. Peaches and grapes again Madeira without end. Then come back wood, some pepper or ginger with malt. Amazing for the age, the young cannot be recognized.

      Definitely easier to drink with water .. Does not lose its taste either .. It even becomes dangerously drinkable and yet very special. Vanilla comes through more.

      Fruity and then becomes dry and a little pepper or ginger. So if the exit were better ... top candidate. But for something young and new the price is absolutely fair. Würdinger successor to Imperial. Tastes a little different but also super fruity. As a dalmunach employee told me, some elements from Imperial were also installed at dalmunach. I'm curious what will come next. Buy recommendation absolutely on my part

      With water the finish is actually much better and fruity .. The bitter goes away and the vanilla comes with it. The finish benefits fully from the water. Points and thumbs up

    This is pretty decent for sure but it will be too sweet and too syrupy for some, not a whisky for peat heads or lovers of heavy sherry.
    This really is a desert in a glass.

      For once the nose is bang on description wise, `peach parfait`, great nose, so different :)
      This also smells like some caramel vodka that a local tapas bar sells in Lincoln, well a little anyway?
      Smells creamy and yes full pf peach but also a little mango with a hint of vanilla.
      A different nose to just about anything i have had before.

      This noses like a 40% whisky, gentle and fragrant, one sip you realise you have been fooled, plenty of power there, but ok neat.
      Very fruity , on mango, peach, dried apricot and a little marmalade with a nice spice not and possibly a hint of peat?
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, sweet and spicy, good length.

      With water:-
      No real change on the nose but the palate has more fruit, more cream, and more spice, it is almost like syrup.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is clearly the less attractive part, with a lot of stinging alcohol and the fruitiness a little covered by a tart winey scent. In taste things really get better, still very powerful. Overall a pleasant one.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fruity, strong alcohol, typical sort of tart wine influence, red fruit, very stinging. Ripe apples and prunes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Now a lot of caramel and fruit, intense, pepper. Chocolate as well, and prunes.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Now more smooth, chocolate again, and red fruits. some caramel as well. Full taste, pretty long finish.

  7. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    better than that from the Octave

    but not a candidate to buy at the price
    • Nose
      Peach, brown banana! gets stronger, brown apple, hay, dark fruit, peppermint?, dark malt, caramel comes, vanilla becomes more, light cheese?, the alcohol stings a little
      with water: pastries (yeast, danish, chocolate), sweeter, more vanilla, spices, a strange maybe chemical note
    • Taste
      strong and oily on the palate
      dark caramel, light malt, light oak, spicy, the alcohol stings, red fruit, apricot
      with water: softer, such a malt note that is unpleasant, spicy, green spices, chocolate biscuits / cookies, oak comes through more
    • Finish
      medium long
      spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg
      with water: bulky, tart, red and mild berries, does the alcohol come through again?

    OK, he's much too young. I know the urge to try new distilleries, but for a second I wait another 5 years or more.
    • Nose
      very young, light fruity, yoghurt, new make, very sweet, which could be due in part to the finish, but without being aromatically noticeable. A little more harmonious with water, but also less noticeable.
    • Taste
      pure very tart and hot, wine gum, pepper, alcohol. Fruity, youthful with water.
    • Finish
      The finish then fruity and tart, a little liquorice, you can feel the slightly few Madeira notes in front of too young whisky.
