Dalmore 12 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #620031 Whisky Advocate

 Half the whisky was aged in bourbon barrels, the other half in sherry casks. This whisky has always been on my short list as one of the finest, most affordable 12 year old single malts available. While the price may have gone up a bit (I remember when it was $20!), the quality remains the same. It’s fresh and lively. A well-balanced dram, with its tell-tale orange marmalade accompanied by tangerine, pineapple upside-down cake, vanilla-soaked barley, subtle brine, and caramel, all leading to a spicy cinnamon and dried vanilla finish. A nice “every day” dram. (JH, Fall 2009)

Wine Enthusiast

 Opening whiffs detect scents of toasted cereal grains and biscuit batter; air contact stimulates deeper aromas of peanut butter, buttered popcorn, wheat toast and lanolin. Palate entry is sweet, maple-like and sappy; the midpalate features oily flavors of roasted nuts, sautéed butter and nougat. Ends on a nutty, near honeyed note, with a trace of cigarette tobacco.  (6/2006)

K&L Notes

The Dalmore malts are not sweet, peaty, or soft. They are powerful, masculine drams distilled by a pot still with a special flat head to help add a more robust flavor. The 12 year is a medium to full-bodied smooth malt, golden in color. Half the blend is aged in sherry and the other half in bourbon. The nose is intense with sherry overtones and dried fruit. The taste is complex with touches of wood and a long, lingering finish with spicy notes. A fantastic whisky.
