  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [April, 2019] I had this dram during the charity tasting at Limburg whisky fair.

    This is an old style sherried malt with a fine nose, a flawless taste and a somewhat weakish mouthfeel and finish. Easy to drink, provided you did not pay today's ridiculous prices for such a bottle...
    • Nose
      90 90
      The colour is chestnutoloroso sherry and the nose offers a flawless old style sherry profile with lots of delicious leathery, fruity, nutty and waxy aromas in a balanced mix. I like the powerful alcohol-soaked raisins note in combination with the toffee and autumn floral aromas of the Dalmore malt.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste is sugary-sweet and winey-sour in a balanced setting but the complexity of flavours is rather limited. No flaw or off-note but no real highlight either - this is easily quaffable but no challenge to my taste buds (which is fine, so I can relax and enjoy).
    • Finish
      86 86
      The initial mouthfeel is warming but almost not coating with a minor bitter-drying moment (tannins at work). The finish is rather short and adds no new impression, but the tannins take their toll again towards the end (which results in a cardboardy dryness). Water is not needed.

    Tasted at the ‘Rarities for Charities‘ Tasting - Limburg Whisky Fair 2019.

    Nice sherry malt. No real flaws, except maybe for a remarkable dryness in the finish.
