  1. pianoman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fruity, elegant. Nutty sherry, strawberries, raspberries. Dried orange slices, juicy lemon cake, a hint of mint. Creme brulee.
    • Taste
      Silky, sweet. Raspberry cake with chopped almonds. Peaches, apricots. Vanilla pudding. Red grapes. Dark chocolate. A touch of damp earth and some walnut.

  2. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Quite the sherry influence. Raisins and dried plums. Cherries and loads of dark chocolate. Toffee too and coffee beans. Then it becomes slightly fresher, because of the addition of oranges.
    • Taste
      Honey and oranges. Black cherries and a lovely layer of dark chocolate, which is followed by some spices such as a touch of black pepper, cinnamon and cloves. A pinch of ginger too.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and with a slightly bitter and dry edge that leans towards a mix of cacao and coffee beans. It also has the same spices as we have on the palate. Oranges and there is a balsamico note in the background.

    A nice showing from Dalmore.
    • Nose
      Pretty richly sherried with some clear dry Oloroso notes, but also more sour, aceto balsamico notes that I associate with Pedro Ximènez sherry. Hints of fudge and toffee accompanied by orange zest and rum raisins. Finally some hessian. We're off to a good start.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but flavourwise were in good territory. Think chocolate truffles and a warming spiciness with cinnamon and cloves. I find a bit of orange liqueur in the background as well. Also, there's a touch of eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Cappuccino, fudge and oranges. Short to medium in length.
