Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes

Nose: heather and dark chocolate. Rather malty. Orange marmelade. Cake. Hints of sherry and oak. Roasted coffee beans. Mouth: slightly weakish but rich enough. Heather again. Orange notes. Caramel as well (too bad). Vague smoke. Finish: mixture of coffee, dry oloroso sherry and hints of vanilla.

I have been gifted a bottle of this whisky which I have found most enjoyable. I have had visitors staying who have all been tasting this Dalmore Gran Reserva, as well as the Dalmore 12 year old and the Dalmore King Alexander. Well we have decided to call them the "holy trinity". This whisky is a beautifully smooth and elegant dram, with a lovely nose and very pleasant lingering after taste you do not want to go away. I have to get some more of this wonderful whisky and recommend you do to-it wont disappoint - I promise you!!
