  1. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Producer`s Tasting Notes"Nose: Intense orange

    zest with hints of African cinnamon, Swiss chocolate and ripe bananas

    from the tropics. Classic tones of liquorice, crushed ripe apples and

    rich Java coffee drift softly in the background. 
    Taste: 

    Complex fusion of flavors offer Seville orange peel and bitter Swiss

    chocolate with notes of dried fruits and walnuts from our single, robust

    30 year old Matusalem Oloroso sherry butt."

  4. Proneor scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Blooming peonies, ripe orange, apple jam, dried fruit. Spicy with crushed black pepper, cardamom and cinnamon. Then juniper, pomegranate, candied orange peel.
    Taste: Moderately sweet, delicious honey and floral tones. Then sherry, dark chocolate, creamy toffee, pink grapefruit, dates, bananas. Ripe peach, apricot jam, orange peel. Nutmeg, almond. Lots of spices (cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, white pepper). There are some dried fruits in the background.
    Finish: Bitter chocolate. Sweet fruit tones, more spices. There seems to be a lot of oak astringency, but it is absolutely harmonious here. Excellent whisky. Rich and interesting finish, excellent balance of sweetness and clove bitterness.

    A new addition to the 'Rare & Prestigious' series from Whyte & Mackay, this new Dalmore has been aged in casks that previously held Gonzalez-Byass's stunning sherries. The whisky started life in 'Apostoles' Palo Cortado casks, before spending its last five years in 'Matusalem' Oloroso sherry butts. (The Whisky Exchange)
