  1. AquaVitae scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Nice sherry notes, but the short finish is a let down.

  4. Classic scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    All in all, a properly made whisky, but with its 40% a little thin and watery.
    Otherwise, he is quite harmonious and balanced, but priced too high.
    • Nose
      80 80
      smells a bit like cognac, earthy, marzipan, raisins, nutty, milk chocolate
    • Taste
      79 79
      a bit watery, brandy beans in milk chocolate, honey, white coffee, a little orange, slightly dry
    • Finish
      79 79
      medium, cognac, honey, milk chocolate, a little wood, slightly tart

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Useful, tasty sherry whisky, better than the Regalis, more coherent, balanced, a bit more adult, but 65 € would not pull out of my pocket, maybe just 45-50, and that's nice for NAS / 40%.
    • Nose
      starts with a warm Stallnote, some potting soil ... then cheap milk chocolate, a touch of marzipan, sugar cookies, raisins ... in between always stables
    • Taste
      Cocoa (not quite so dilettantisch-like set up as Regalis), earth, sweet tobacco, cake ... so'n an interlude of chocolate sponge cake and gingerbread, nougat, Chantré
    • Finish
      medium long, dark chocolate, brandy bean, slightly warming

  6. rottendon scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    All in all, a clear advance over the Regalis, but not enough to bring it over the 80, I'll start, let's see what the base makes of it.
    • Nose
      81 81
      So I also have the stable, so in the background, definitely cocoa, or cocoa-rich chocolate, but then again strewn fruit, some angegoren, this time no raisins, but the wet soil of Othorion, clearly! Overall, a bit gentler than the Regalis, assorted, but also a bit bland. He tolerates heat a bit better, then there's Rumrosinen.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Not quite as watery as the Regalis, the alcoholic sharpness is reduced here and sets in later. Otherwise, he is much less bitter, cocoa, Cointreau, honey and cellar.
    • Finish
      76 76
      It is even faster than the Regalis, but not so bitter on the tongue for a long time, so that's positive!

  7. Othorion scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      83 83
      Raisins, moder, moist soil, chocolate, marzip, a little bit of menthol, brandy
    • Taste
      79 79
      Fairly watery, milk chocolate, some nougat, oranges, brandy
    • Finish
      77 77
      Short, meaningless, cocoa, nougat, brandy and some bitterness towards coffee

  8. davidloosli scored this whisky 73 points Member Senior

    Not my type of whisky
    • Nose
      A lot of fruit, vanilla, a farmy barn smell, salt, brown sugar
    • Taste
      Musty, leather, austere, barely any sweetness, gets bitter, rather watery mouthfeel, coffee, light sherry sweetness
    • Finish
      Stays austere and bitter, artichokes, light sweetness, rum plum

    Dalmore Luceo has some really good flavours and certainly takes us on a sherry-led journey. But, at times I find the sweeter notes become a touch cloying and overbearing. Nevertheless, this is straight-forward, well-made and quite drinkable.

    • Nose
      Real fudgy toffee and deep sherried notes. Chocolate cake, liquid fudge and Devon cream toffee make for a welcoming start. Sherry notes of sultanas and figs are joined by an earthy biscuitiness – rather like oat cakes and brown malty bread. There’s some floral here in the background – palma violet-esque. After a few minutes of resting, the nose reveals fresh coffee beans.
    • Taste
      Sweet and very richly sherried. As with many Dalmore bottlings at 40%, the mouthfeel is a touch thin, but in this case, not overly detracting. Starting with coffee and walnut cake we swiftly move on into rum-soaked raisins, treacle and icing sugar. Chocolate cake, blackberry preserve and molasses keep us firmly at the richer and sweeter end of the spectrum (perhaps a bit too much). Nuts and cloves bring additional interest and are joined by an interesting herbal/floral flavour which rather reminds me of cough syrup.
    • Finish
      Medium, with well-judged astringency and some tart fruits and berries.
