Color
Amontillad
Nose

Kakao, dazwischen Zitrone und ein paar Gewürze, Schokolade und Pfeffer

Taste

Erst zitruslastig, was ein wenig überraschend kam, mit netter Mischung aus Orange und Zitrone, dann mehr Sherry, etwas würzig und dann aber diese lahme Staubnote, die ich oft bei jungen OAs habe, Zimt

Finish

Kurz, Oloroso bleibt mit Holz, etwas Kaffeebohne und Orange

Comments

Für 12 Jahre schon echt nicht schlecht, aber ich hasse diese Nebennoten.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

sweetness; citrus notes; orange, tangerine; sherry; oak; hints of chocolate; spices; slight bitterness; nutty notes; slightly oily; only hints of barley(-shugar); distant floral notes; overall a mellow and mature nose(after some time in the glass)

Taste

sherry; oak; spices; citrus notes: orange, tangerine; hints of chocolate; hints of coffee; slight malt notes; becoming drier; floral notes; spices; overall mellow and mature character but still rather two-dimensional

Finish

rather dry; oak; spices; hints of chocolate; rosted coffee; sweetness in the backround; malted barley; hints of citrus fruit; more floral in the end; overall rather dull but relatively strong finish

Comments

Good nose, medium taste and medioca finish but still a good single malt, although it could have used a slightly more %vol

Nose:- Whiff of leather with enticing sweetness of cooked fruits and maraschino cherry. Splash of water bring out the caramel and coffee bean fragrance.

Palate:- Poached pear, very stable on the palate. Well balance and structure.

Finish:- Relatively short, but very balance and delicious, sweet maraschino cherry aftertaste. Hints of ash linger.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Honey, vanilla, rasins, some sherry.

Taste

Oloroso sherry, dried fruits, oak, dry, bitter.

Finish
Medium. Some hints of fruit, dry oloroso sherry and some bitter notes.

Comments
Dalmore used to be sweeter. This is some kind of dry and bitter expression of older 12 year old versions.
