    Dalmore from another era. Yep, that’s what it is. An era when stocks were plenty, European oak was still used for Sherry casks and older whisky was used to enrich the flavour because it was available. At least that’s my impression from tasting this 12-year-old Dalmore. It is recognisably Dalmore, the style is very clear, yet it is richer, spicier and more complex than contemporary bottlings while still being an easy, quaffable, light dram pleasing the entire (adult) family. Works for me!

    Got myself a couple in the mid eigthies, the Duty Free Sales Only version.

    nose: the Oloroso earns the 1st prize here, oranges, vanilla, malt, nutty

    body: rich, not siropy, however full of elegant flavours, citrussy, vanilla, sherry notes, a mild punch because of the 43% I guess. It all comes nicely together.

    finish: long, warming, lingers on and on. Not drying at all.

    price: a steal at 15 euro in the mid eighties

    presentation: just right, a fine box, not too fancy, and an one litre bottel:-)
