Taste note

  • Colour:

    Dark Orange

  • Nose:

    Grand Marnier, candied orange peel and candied walnuts or pecans. A splash of water brings out some floral, honeysuckle notes.

  • Palate:

    Major sherry with citrus overtones. Orange peel and orange liqueur notes continue, plus a slight woodiness and some cocoa powder. Some of the more delicate floral and softer fruits flavors are hinted at, but are overpowered by the sherry. Surprisingly thin body for such a robust whisky. Water brings out some sugary notes, maybe a little extra fruit.

  • Finish:

    Medium length and warming, with marzipan notes. Overall impression is of candied orange mixed with heavy sherry.

  • Conclusion:

    The starting range of the Dalmore. Its a medium bodied 12 year old single malt whisky that gives a lot of aromas and flavors. The added coloring caramel (E150A) isn't necessary in my opinion but this is what the consumers want.This whisky would be even better if the alcohol percentage would be more than 40% abv.
