  1. André scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The picture and bottlecode still are of the 2010 version. 

    The 2007 version has the flat sticker staghead, not the raised one.

    Althoug they don`t make this one anymore for a while now (since they put the old name on the new version of the cigar malt) it still is my favorite whisky for a summer evening. It`s easy and full at the same time.

    N-
    Plenty of trademark deep olorosso, ripe banana, burnt vanilla and
    sweet fig. A hint of eggy on this expression with incense wood smokes.
    Underlay with some cedar and tobacco but insignificant. Faint, gentle
    and soft characters.

    P- Light weight, toasted sweet barks and mild ashes.

    F- Medium, smooth and round. Ok on its own, but surprisingly soft compare to other sibling in Dalmore family.

    Nose: Doughy. Some cinnamon and creme caramel. Vanilla. Orange. Fruity Ju-jubes…and/or maybe a hint of Wine Gums. Nice spice profile. Pronounced, but not loud. More like ‘well-articulated’ spices.

    Palate: Orange again. Very pleasant warm spices. Chocolate (both milk and white varieties). Wow…is this ever soft and pillowy. An easy sipper.

    WhiskyFun by Serge Valentin:

    Dalmore ‘Gran Reserva’ (40%, OB, 2008)  This is the former ‘Cigar malt’ – it seems that smoking is less and less PC. 60% sherry and 40% bourbon. Colour: dark gold. Nose: rather less coffeeish and less malty than the 12 and much more on fruit jams, tamarind, tobacco (funny how our mind works), a little camphor, chocolate... getting then earthier, almost mushroomy. Richer and thicker than the twelve, also smokier. Maybe a tad ‘obvious’, or let’s say ‘pushy.’ Mouth: not big but creamy and pleasantly orangey. Good maltiness. Liquorice and tea. Lacks a little more texture. Caramel. Finish: medium long, better than ‘the end of the palate’, more on dark chocolate and malt. Also slightly salty/kirschy, which is ‘funny’ here. Comments: very good whisky but I liked the 12 a little better. The zing from a few extra-degrees – like, three – would be welcome. SGP:431 – 82 points.
