Whisky Reviews for Dalmore 1990 CA

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.98 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A dram in 2 steps, spicy then more on the maderized side, to leave air a time!
    • Nose
      gingerbread, currants, malt and vanilla plus spices!
    • Taste
      floral scent, sweet minty, then macerated grapes with frank, strong attack.
      The candied lemon and tangerine are added, in addition to a dry woody return of hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      woody, on the candied fruits, the honeyed side is also apparent.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well, obviously, given the glowing comments I read, I had to miss something. Perhaps blinded, was I, by etiquette? Too many expectations? Enthusiasm: Nose: 4/5 Mouth and finish: 2/5
    • Nose
      Very long to open. A little fruity, a little malty, its maturity is not displayed. On the contrary, it is rather dynamic, with a nice minty freshness. The fruits unfold as well as a beautiful woody, witness of the age - finally.
    • Taste
      Intense, malty. The promised fruits are not revealed even with water. A little aggressive, even.
    • Finish
      Rather dry, and always a little unbalanced.

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    On the nose, flowers and mint, then scents of candied fruit. Alcohol gives way to spicy returns!
    2nd:
    melon and orange peel on the menu with a hint of spice!

  4. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It's after enjoying a dram such as this one that we say that Dalmore really misses wonders at the point of unnecessary reduction. A fruity whisky and really very nice as a whole. No false notes, a real success.
    • Nose
      The first volatile notes on lemon and mint. These gradually give way to a wonderfully fruity nose on white fruits, pear, white grapes. After a few moments it becomes even more greedy on apricot pie and orange jam.
    • Taste
      A light attack, alcohol (56.3%) is very well integrated. The mouth is oily, first of all in the continuity of the nose on the white fruits and the orange. In the middle of the mouth the woody appears on spices and oak. Fresh fruits are back at the end. A beautiful complexity.
    • Finish
      A medium-length finish, woody, mineral and salty.

  5. p4blo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It needs time to open up but is still not a straightforward dram. Feels in beetween Littlemill and Springbank, perhaps not the most usual profile for Dalmore.
    • Nose
      Thick layers of honey, yellow fruits with papaya and lemon, wet stones, moss, then again some tropical fruits with mango and passion fruit. Quite complex.
    • Taste
      Lemon juice, apple, pear, some mineral notes of clay and chalk, salt, cheesecake, butter, shortbread, honey. Rich and complex.
    • Finish
      The minerality is quite pronounced, honey and lemon juice are there too. Quite long.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Without any measure with the official Dalmore, it sends heavy and tasty to all floors. The nose is simply extraordinary, with its orange waves very present. Regarding the type of sherry barrel, the color and taste I would not bet on an Oloroso or a PX. A Fino? A Manzanilla? An Amontillado? God (or Mark Watt) only knows it. 90/100 (not far from the 91).
    • Nose
      Orange honey, apricot and raisin, dried flower. A floral freshness develops quickly, while candied white fruit settles in the background. After aeration, a huge orange wave appears and stays throughout the dram.
    • Taste
      Not aggressive at all, despite the past 56%. Woody orange, handles of exotic and spicy spices pecking the cheeks. Apricot honey, and slight traces of walnut husk.
    • Finish
      Average. The sweet citrus always present. A very slight woody smoke is rising in the nostrils. The spicy spices linger for a moment.
