  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great sherried expression, big bold red fruit flavors, juicy, orange zest, light spice to balance. Minor quip would be a bit thin in the mouthfeel. Overall a well done dram!

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    a dram about caramel, vanilla, woody, a bourbon, no, a little candied and macerated fruit, very sweet, milk chocolate and toasted wood that gives a sensation of burnt caramel!
    it is very sweet, creamy, it is very marked on the cooked vanilla, the cooked fruits.
    The final is simple, but quite long in fact and remains very present.

  3. Gerhans scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A very reasonable, tasty dram. Very balanced, nicely sherried and mildly complex. It's not very adventurous or outspoken, it's just a very good dram.
    • Nose
      Caramel, coffee, chocolate. Dark fruits and dried fruits. The coffee is more café-au-lait than espresso, it has a dairy creaminess on the nose. Also some biscuits.
    • Taste
      Malty, sherried, very tasty tobacco and some chocolate notes. Some zest and oranges, balanced and the sherry complements the malt. Also caramel, which transfers to the finish.
    • Finish
      Caramel and raisins together with some oranges. Some herbs and spices. I'd say a medium-long finish, with the raisins and oranges lingering the longest.

  5. Andytka3 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Sour yogurt, buttery. Dry leaf with strong earthy note, muddy. Unusual. Palate:- Dense sour honey and citrusy with heat developing, coat palate
    with tinge of spicy spices. Prickly ginger and earthiness of
    black pepper remains. Complex, however on my blunt taste bud, this is
    slightly off balance, lack harmony.

    Finish:- Firm and stable, smooth as usual Dalmore, long and spicy.

  9. Othorion scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    tastes better than the 15 year old although he is a NAS. I find it a bit more complex, but still no Burner
    • Nose
      fruity, lime, grapefruit, orange, honey, vanilla and a touch of tobacco
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet caramel pudding, very balanced, a little raisins and oranges
    • Finish
      medium, with dark chocolate, caramel and now again a hint of tobacco
