    This malt makes everything "objectively" wrong.
    Bottled only with 40%, cold filtered and with E 150 in it.
    An ugly antler on the bottle. ;-)
    But it tastes good to me.
    He does not do it all wrong, if only he would present it better ...
    Reminds me aromatic away to the Macallan 12 Sherry Oak.
    Maybe my positive attitude is due to the fact that I got the liter bottle as a gift. ;-)

    Cannot really grasp it. Somedays it's ok, somedays I don't like it at all. Heavy Sherry inside...

    [November, 2014]  I emptied a bottle that I bought for 57 Euro in October, 2014.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state "okayish, but nothing remarkable about it".

    somehow "dead" in the glass, musty raisins, alcohol, with sherry casks over-washed refill hogsheads, inharmonious, peppery, Christmas spices, nutmeg

    Note moved to ID 53353. That's the one with the printed stag rather than the glued-on one.

    Dalmore has changed not only the labels, but also the content of the bottles for the 15y old. Whereas the older ones are 100% matured in Sherry-Casks, the new one that I had recently bought, was matured first in oak casks and then moved, for an additional time (I think it was 3 years) to Sherry casks.
    That makes a tremendous taste difference and should be entered here as a different bottle type of the 15y old.
