Whisky Reviews for Dalmore 20-year-old DMCo

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: Super mega old style Sherry, hyper elegant and extremely complex right from the start! Spicy, very fine, old smoke, aromatic wood, leather, tobacco, toffee and dark chocolate. But then also bitter orange and grapefruit, beeswax and honey, old cupboard and herbal tea. Complex floral notes permeate the malt, give it complexity, then some wood polish, enormously complex, harmonious and noble!

    Mouth: Creamy, super-vigorous, powerful and full of flavor ... otherwise it is almost identical to the aroma. Harmonious blend of fine sherry, fine wood, tart herbs and ripe but also tangy fruit notes, with a stunning mouthfeel, the alcohol itself is barely noticeable.

    Finish: Long, elegant, increasingly dry, with fine sherry and old cupboard.

    Conclusion: With such an old malt from so long ago, it is sometimes idle to write Tasting Notes and take the flavors apart, since the harmony and complexity in their beauty and flawlessness can hardly be adequately described by them. A dream!

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=309 Color: full gold Nose: Dull, dark and spicy! Leather, smoke, wet charcoal, dark black fruits of elderberry, overripe cherries, blood oranges and fatty tobacco aromas. Dark-skinned oak, foliage, morass and a jam-like sweetness make the first wow effect. Taste: Spicy, fat and leathery. Wood, oranges, salt, nuts and vibrant herb notes. Again tobacco, wet leaves and soil, as well as tart dark fruit flavors make the taste an experience - just TOPP! Add espresso and Earl Gray tea to the finish. Finish: Medium long and still powerful spicy. Nuts, coffee, chocolate, salt, fruit liqueur and dark berries. But also tobacco, smoke and the wood are still in the middle of life! 93 points N: 93P / G: 94P / F: 93P

    History in a bottle. As Addy already stated  probably pre WWII. Sample from Jeroen. From the same bottle he shared with Serge: http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivefebruary14-1.html#080214
    • Nose
      Delicate dusty sweetness. Dried fruits of figs and dates. Oranges and tangerines at the background. Nice oak, but some floral notes as well. Whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Wow, unexpectedly full bodied. Almost waxy! Bitterness of grapefruit. Blackcurrants. Orange marmelade. Vanilla fudge. Woody. A little peat later on. Complex.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Nutmeg. A little ginger. Pine at the end. Well balanced
