- Very good :)
- A great single malt! As expressive as it is expressive, but with an unexpected touch: Herbs are in the foreground, fighting against rumor; Not sugary or sweet as in some Rumfass matured malts. Great!
Something green, grassy, honey-melon, brown sugar (rather tart than picky), rose-water, something soap-like, an interesting spicy note - Kardomon, earthy and late, but nevertheless a sweet, thick rumor-sweetness comes along;
Herbs stick to the palate, but full, it almost seems medically-herb-laden (herb garden in the blazing sun), oak and acid from the barrel, grass, juniper and bay leaf, bitter orange, the alcohol is beautifully integrated;
At first spicy - herbaceous and strong, but soon becomes pleasantly soft and with a pleasant oak note;
- Beautiful rumin flood!
- If you like rich whisky this could be ideal for you, not what I would usually go for but I liked it.
Reminded me of an old first fill sherry cask Glendronach.
Chocolate orange, chocolate lime sweets, fudge, caramel, obvious rich sherry.
Full on the palate, very rich and treacly but there is also some bitterness but I would expect that. The rum is there but it is in the background.
Gets a little buttery after a while and the bitterness is replaced by a balsamic glaze sweetness
Long and warming, with restrained power.
- Quite strange, heavy drink, but surprisingly pleasant Dalmore!
Powerful effects of rum, spicy, bitter oak, cinnamon, eucalyptus and orange in sweet creamy gown,
next to fresh leather clothes and cooking oil ... delicious!
Oily and sweet, a lot of rum effects, orange, licorice, mint candies and motor oil!?! Wow!
Medium length, sweet liqueur, orange, rum
- n: rummy indeed and very pleasantly so. oranges and motoroil (lovely
combination) garages. good spiciness on allspice and cinnamon.
just a little oaky bitterness that works well. and serge is right, there´s
a good load of shoe polish in there. some may find this a weird combination.
I love it.
t: great!!! oily mouthfeel with a strong attack. it is sugary but not sweet, it´s
this sticky, deep brown sugar I often was served when drinking tea in ireland
( is this demerara sugar?) this garagy notes we had on the nose, the shoepolish
and the oranges shining through. also some cough syrup or these candies
called rachengold (german product). liquorice.
f: long and even longer, liquorice and motoroil.
comments: as I said, surely not everybody´s cup of tea, but I could cry I
only had the third of a bottle.
- "... I’ve been informed that this was matured in a 1970s demerara rum cask" (see http://chorltonwhisky.co.uk/review/review-dalmore-1990-rum-cask-cadenheads)
