  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    At the first sip you might say: "Beautiful, intense sherry whisky, yummy cocoa!", But when I taste it, there are edges, gaps, mistakes, cobbled together quickly, like a theatrical backdrop, covered with cocoa, if you like getting closer or even bumping into it, everything comes together. A blender, Bauer catcher. If you're not careful, you're tempted to spend the € 55 and regret it later.
    • Nose
      initially a bit dusty-musty, then clearly sour (dry white wine), in addition to raisins and cocoa powder ... Acidity is weaker over time, it comes a bit dry wood
    • Taste
      creamy on arrival, a lot of cocoa, nutty ... or better: walnut (distinct bitterness), again a splash of dry white wine (feels a little astringent in the cheek pouches), then straw-woody
    • Finish
      medium long, lots of cocoa, but rather baking cocoa, quite bitter, woody

    Fruity creamy and good Whisky for sherryfinished-fans.

  3. Totoro scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Decidedly too hot for its measly 40%, unfortunately, with a weak and abrupt finish. Too bad, really, because on both the nose and the palate, the sherry influence is beautiful. Nutty, dry, and leathery in a multidimensional, not-at-all-boring way, this could have really been something if the distillate had been better and the ABV higher. Still a decent sipping malt, for sure, but I would not buy a whole bottle.

  4. Classic scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    At first, quite interesting aromas come to your nose, which definitely make you want to whisky.
    Unfortunately, the taste and the rather short departure as unfortunately can not keep up.
    • Nose
      82 82
      beautiful sherry aromas, raisins, ripe plums, fine spices (cinnamon?)
      Also has something of old wood, so as you know it from antique furniture
    • Taste
      74 74
      After the nose rather disappointing. The fruits are very flat, with something like floor wax, diluted milk coffee, slightly sweetened, then a bit spicy dry. Has something of grapefruit
    • Finish
      72 72
      quite short, bitter and tart, the grapefruit strikes again, with a little honey

    In the second sip, the whole thing does not get better. He is certainly not unknowable, but he does not belong in the price range. In that sense, I'm completely into Marko.

      First a big swing of everything! Brandy with fruit cocktail, partly fermented, yeast and cocoa. Sort but relatively quickly and becomes more harmonious. In any case, nobody has to look for strong aromas. Sorted I would say dark honey, lemon zest, quite sour the whole thing. Calm down, the acid softens and juicy raisins appear, sprinkled with cocoa powder. He is heated again clearly restless, slightly alcoholic with fermented fruit and yeast, not mine!
    • Taste
      76 76
      Fairly strong (slightly spicy) for its 40%, but watery consistency. It starts chocolaty and then quickly becomes quite dry and dry, like cocoa powder (the real, not the sweetened).
    • Finish
      72 72
      Bitter and short.

      The bitterness on the back tongue lingers extremely long, bitter almond or so, slightly artificial.

  6. Othorion scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      84 84
      Raisins, prunes, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange oil, cocoa, slightly sour, grandmother's cupboard, honey comes later
    • Taste
      77 77
      Spicy, cocoa, dark chocolate, nutmeg, walnuts, grapefruit, quite oily in the mouth, and quite full for the only 40% by volume in the first impression, with time you will notice it and it gets a bit watery in the mouth. Of the fruit I find in the taste unfortunately nothing more ...
    • Finish
      77 77
      Pretty short, with grapefruit, cocoa and some walnut.

  8. Macheye scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Dalmore Regalis, whilst light and delicate shows good balance and flavour. Initially quite sweet on the nose, the palate offers more depth and a lot less saccharine than you might be expecting. Agreeable stuff.

    • Nose
      Fruity and animated. Dried and sugar coated cranberries and raspberries are joined by peach cobbler and a smattering of currants and sultanas. More fruity than rich, the whisky is tempered by both a nip of balsamic vinegar and a fair amount of woodiness – vanilla, and ginger both providing pleasing nuances.
    • Taste
      Quite reasonable mouthfeel for the 40% ABV and a fair amount of balance too. Dried fruits (cranberries and redberries) are joined by blackberries and a real jamminess, almost marmalade. Fresh coffee grounds and balsamic provide a bitterness that fits well with the sweeter fruits, berries and currants. Ginger spice gives the whole experience a lift and brings with it the earthiness of damp soil.
    • Finish
      Medium with earthy spice and brown sugars.

    Dalmore ‘Regalis’ (40%, OB, Fortuna Meritas Collection, +/-2016)
    An amoroso sherry finish this time. Amoroso is some kind of sweet
    sherry that some used to call ‘sweet oloroso’ or ‘dulce’ if I’m not
    mistaken. Rather out of fashion. Colour: pale amber. Nose: nice! (yes,
    demonstrating utter accuracy in tasting). More towards old tobaccos and
    herbal teas, almonds or amaretti, walnut wine, and, bizarrely, vin
    jaune. IN other words, a finishing in a sweet wine cask that got drier
    than its counterparts from dry wine casks. A master blender moves in
    mysterious ways… (that one for Richard!) Mouth: I find this really good.
    The Valour with more depth and complexity, as well as, perhaps, more
    freshness. Honeydew, fresh hazelnuts, fresh pecans, even macadamias… And
    I especially like the faint earthiness. Eating raw mushrooms. Finish:
    shortish, sadly, but that’s only the minimal strength. Chocolate and
    café latte. Comments: I’ll say again what any lazy blogger will say,
    bring a CS version of this! Very good juice. SGP:451 - 84 points.
