    Dalmore 45 yo 1964 'Aurora' (45%, OB, oloroso sherry, 200 bottles, 2010)
    These old Dalmores usually put me in a moral dilemma. On the one hand,
    they are insanely expensive… on the other hand, the ones I could try so
    far were also extremely good! Let’s check this one… Colour: amber. Nose:
    starts rather delicately, slightly subdued, almost shy… and elegant.
    It’s rather on the tarte tatin/honey side at first nosing, as well as on
    oranges and maybe a little tamarind chutney. There’s also a little
    musk, old roses, then touches of camphor, tiger balm… but only touches!
    Goes on with hints of rum baba, chocolate, bananas flambéed, roses
    again… even something slightly muscatty. Keywords: subtle elegance.
    Maybe a little feminine? (I’m sorry, ladies.) Mouth: once again, this
    baby is relatively soft, subtle and shy at first sips but it’s soon to
    become more talkative. What’s very nice as well is that the oakiness is
    obvious but intricately mingled with the fruits, first tangerines and
    oranges, then more candied quince, kumquats and bananas. Nutmeg and
    cinnamon complement the profile (oak) while the whole remains very
    slightly shy(ish). Finish: medium long, more on chocolate and green
    pepper. A tannicity in the aftertaste (apple pips and peelings).
    Comments: I like this Aurora quite a lot but my all time favourite
    Dalmore will remain the fantabulous 50yo from five years ago (WF 96). SGP:461 - 89 points.
