Color
Tawny
Nose

Sweet honey with a musty note, wood, leather, spices, nutmeg, but also some fruits, peach, oranges, grapefruit. The musty note disappears after a while and the peach becomes somewhat more present. There is a lot of oranges present, some tobacco, chocolate and pepper.

Taste

Smooth and mild, a little pepper, vanilla, again the oranges, chocolate and some gin-like notes, juniper and coriander.

Finish

Citric fruits, oranges, lemons. There is some nutmeg, tobacco and chocolate. It has a reasonable length, especially the bitterness of a cup of strong coffe keeps lingering.

Comments

It starts musty, but it becomes fresher in time. A lot of citric/oranges in nose and taste. I was positively surprised.


83/84pt.

Vind de geur niet geweldig van deze Dalmore 12 yo. Ik ruik wat sherry en wat basterd suiker/donkere chocolade (?). Zit ook een beetje een wrange leergeur aan, waarschijnlijk vind ik `m daarom niet zo geweldig.

Prettige koffie/mokkasmaak, klein zoetje met wat sherrytonen, mis eigenlijk verder wat diepgang. Eerste nasmaak vind ik wat straf maar hij blijft wel medium lang hangen met `t bovengenoemde smaakprofiel.

Fijne whisky maar vindt de prijs van € 40,00 wat aan de hoge kant.

Nose

Kakao, dazwischen Zitrone und ein paar Gewürze, Schokolade und Pfeffer

Taste

Erst zitruslastig, was ein wenig überraschend kam, mit netter Mischung aus Orange und Zitrone, dann mehr Sherry, etwas würzig und dann aber diese lahme Staubnote, die ich oft bei jungen OAs habe, Zimt

Finish

Kurz, Oloroso bleibt mit Holz, etwas Kaffeebohne und Orange

Comments

Für 12 Jahre schon echt nicht schlecht, aber ich hasse diese Nebennoten.
