  1. MrDvorak scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    RATING: 86pts – |83 – 86 (B) → Good| — Not a “must”, but a nice-to-have.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is fresh, clean and has a bright berry profile with notes of strawberry, prunes, grapefruit pulp and caramel.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The taste is pretty simple, slightly dry with nice sweetness and notes of raisins, chocolate and red berries.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is medium lenght, fruity with nice bittersweet base of sherriness and has hints of cocoa powder and caramel.

  5. RJKrueger scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very nice Dalmore with an interesting flavor profile and despite the different barrels, very balanced and harmonious.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Vanilla, caramel, sweet sherry notes and almost flowery wine notes, some nuts and chocolate. A wonderful but not too difficult complexity.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Soft and oily at first, very fruity. Then comes some pepper and roasted oak. The spicy notes mix with intense sherry notes and are gently wrapped in grapevines. At the back there is also clear chocolate and light espresso tones and some tobacco. Everything very balanced in terms of taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      There are more spicy parts in the medium-long finish. The sweetness fades a little too quickly. Admittedly successful and pleasant without going too bitterly, but then there is a lack of volume and sustainability.

      Dark and sweet fruits, caramel, sherry
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish, the oak has a nice finish

    A relatively ok from Dalmore. Both the wine and the sherry stand out clearly. The nose is decent, the taste does not harmonize completely, while the aftertaste is a bit disappointing and short.

    Without doubt better with a cigar ... When will a raw cask version be available?
