  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nose and finish were much better than the other two. Since significantly more sherry has been processed. Even though I think the Spey could be a little older. The dead spot here in the mouth confuses me. Overall, I like this a little bit better than the other two.
    • Nose
      in the nose already detulich more intense, as a larger portion of sherry is included. In addition to the sherry notes, there are other fruit notes, this time dried fruit, raisin, but also a little bright fruits, pear, for example sweet, soft, round, yummy.
    • Taste
      surprisingly alcoholic, a little fruit trying to bite through.
    • Finish
      typical Dalmore sherry finish. I know that from the 12er. I like, because it is quite special, otherwise fruity, sweet and then comes to the end a little wood. But not much.

    Very complexed nose, but taste a little disappointing.
    • Nose
      Raisins, dried fruits (plums, apples, pears), cherries in chocolate, nuts, butterscotch. After a while even dried mushrooms.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, butterscotch, dried fruits, dark chocolate, oak.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, fruity.

    • Nose
      Warm and inviting nuances of Seville oranges and
      crushed pear
    • Taste
      Spicy ginger, marmalade and cinnamon
    • Finish
      Nutmeg and
      toffee provide the perfect after taste

  8. Jonkers scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The balance is good but not perfect because the nose is the best part of this whisky. A typically Dalmore whisky !
    • Nose
      Very fresh and salty. Butterscotch and pineapple. Milkchocolate and some malt and vanilla. Ripe, sweet apples and some cinnamon. Complex.
    • Taste
      Liguorice and anise. Sweetness from the vanilla and a little buttery. Sweet apples and a little salty.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly sweet. Sweet apples and medium.

  9. D3US scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not the best river collection expression, but not the worst either. Quite enjoyable, and for 35 pounds not a waste.
    • Nose
      Butter cake, salty and malt. Grass or hay adds a slightly dull note. Cinnamon spice, vanilla sweetness.
    • Taste
      Chocolate now. Drying, cinnamon spice. A hint of licorice. Salty edge again. Coffee perhaps, wood shavings. 
    • Finish
      Dry oak, soft sherry and malt, cinnamon, chocolate, oily and leathery.

  10. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Following 2010`s hugely successful `Dee Dram`, this is a special bottling of Dalmore in celebration of the River Tweed, the UK`s best salmon river. As with the distillery`s other `River` drams, a generous donation from the profits will go to the river`s conservation foundation.
