    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!
    • Nose
      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;
    • Taste
      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;
    • Finish
      At first spicy - herbaceous and strong, but soon becomes pleasantly soft and with a pleasant oak note;

    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.
    • Nose
      Chocolate orange, chocolate lime sweets, fudge, caramel, obvious rich sherry.
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      Long and warming, with restrained power.

  7. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Quite strange, heavy drink, but surprisingly pleasant Dalmore!
    • Nose
      Powerful effects of rum, spicy, bitter oak, cinnamon, eucalyptus and orange in sweet creamy gown,
      next to fresh leather clothes and cooking oil ... delicious!
    • Taste
      Oily and sweet, a lot of rum effects, orange, licorice, mint candies and motor oil!?! Wow!
    • Finish
      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.
    90/100

  10. hummingbird did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "... 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)
