Whisky Reviews for Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve
32 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.51 points
- 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 :)
Dried fruits (plum), caramel, orange zest, dark chocolate, sherry
Spicy, slightly smoky, vanilla
Medium-long, warm, dry, spicy
orange peel takes over, dry tobacco finish
- 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"!
- Great NAS, priced he should like but like 20, - less cost. ;) Otherwise, I like the slight exotic hints in it.
Cinnamon, caramel, berries, vanilla, Sherrylastig, a little exotic but also comes through (therefore probably suitable for Cigars)
Great fruits, sherry with banana caramel sweets, mango, with vanilla-eos, cinnamon, ground spices, berry bushes, orange
Spicy, ginger, clove, sherry, medium-long
- 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.
- My first Dalmore. I would have expected worse.
Sweetish and heavy at the beginning with roasted orange slices, cinnamon, leather and vanilla. Earthy, loamy, dark. Cocoa, roasted coffee beans. After some time, add almond splitter.
Full mouthfeel at the beginning, velvety and creamy, viscous, syrupy. Again, the orange peel, which come along on the tongue but with more intense spiciness. White pepper, marjoram (?). The oranges are covered in toffee, malt and milk chocolate, with a pinch of cinnamon and coriander. Sherry comes through.
Remains creamy, next to the oranges still occur lemon peels. Oak comes.
- Pleasant. Not complex but friendly and easy.
Pretty spicy. Not because of alcohol but mostly because of pepper and some smoke. It's not very expressive. Toffee, chocolate and vanilla. It is rather sweet, creamy and greedy but it lacks intensity.
More present. Always sweetness and roundness; It's creamy with honey, toffee. Rather sweet. Evolves towards the spices in the middle of the mouth.
Syrupy. Moderately long and very marked by caramel.
