    Very pleasant whisky. Feels somewhat young, but well balanced and gives good overall impression. However, I didn't manage to taste it together with a cigar :)
    • Nose
      Dried fruits (plum), caramel, orange zest, dark chocolate, sherry
    • Taste
      Spicy, slightly smoky, vanilla
    • Finish
      Medium-long, warm, dry, spicy

  7. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, sherry, oaky, and strong vanilla.
    In the mouth, pastry sensation, caramel "toffee", vanilla, spices too, then fruits a little macerated (cooked orange, raisins de Corinth), it is very sweet, but also monolithic!
    In the end, long on the same flavors, like a bourbon in fact, lacking subtlety.

    A dram to drink in syrup, where to remember a typicity "Dalmorienne"!

  8. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Great NAS, priced he should like but like 20, - less cost. ;) Otherwise, I like the slight exotic hints in it.
    • Nose
      Cinnamon, caramel, berries, vanilla, Sherrylastig, a little exotic but also comes through (therefore probably suitable for Cigars)
    • Taste
      Great fruits, sherry with banana caramel sweets, mango, with vanilla-eos, cinnamon, ground spices, berry bushes, orange
    • Finish
      Spicy, ginger, clove, sherry, medium-long

  9. André scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A nice Dalmore, not great. The original cigar malt was better and also the Gran Reserva, which was in between the two cigarmalts (mainly renamed for marketing reasons) was better. They were also both much better priced. because price / quality shifts towards the negative.
