  1. Totoro scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    A big fat disappointment (especially if you factor in the price). Give me the 12 or the 15 over this any day.
    Cardboardy, thin, weak, and woody. Its only saving grace is the finish, when the lovely Dalmore spirit character comes through with a late burst of juicy, sticky-sweet oranges. But alas: too little, too late...

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    In itself certainly not a bad malt. But there is too little tension in it for me. Overall neat. But I do not have to have a big bottle.

  8. Kensay scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For 18 years it is rather weak, especially in the body, although the aroma is very good and promised much more than it turned out in the end. A good option for a feast, but certainly not for thoughtful testing.
    • Nose
      Very good nose, cigar smoke, sherry notes, prunes and dried fruits, gently and balanced
    • Taste
      wine notes, wood, as it is very dull after the aroma
    • Finish
      the finish is light, sherry notes with an admixture of dried fruits, dried plums and raisins.

  10. Lorion scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant and really delicious. Unexpected 83 points!
    • Nose
      Beguiling, sweet nose. Dark fruits. Almost a little sparkling in the nose over time, which is somewhat contrary to the otherwise heavy and set sherry aroma. An interesting combination.
    • Taste
      Chocolate, cherry, pipe tobacco. Spice remains after swallowing.
    • Finish
      Medium-long, spicy-chocolatey.
