The Dalmore is a Highland single malt. We sampled the 12 year old, which marked the first time sampling anything from this distillery. Its color is a dark copperish brown, but it tastes markedly lighter than it looks. Initially, hints of sweet maple are obvious. It melts smoothly as you drink it and turns into butterscotch. This is a delicious but simple single malt scotch. With a touch of water, this is possibly one of the smoothest scotches at this price range. A perfect place to start for someone who’s starting to look into the world of whiskey.

Outta curiosity did your 12 yr Dalmore come in the older black box, or the newer burgandy colored box?

Maybe it's just me, but this whisky reminds me of graham crackers on both the nose, and palate (with a faint hint of chocolate which makes me think of that of s'mores).

It was the burgundy box. I like it because it has a subtle leathery texture to it. Graham crackers is good. It's got that kind of late summer bonfire feel to it. Not a cold weather scotch, but not strait summer either...

I wonder how much of a difference there is between the newer burgandy boxed 12 yr in comparison to the older black box version we see in the picture?

Maybe I should tackle this question head on myself; I do seem to recall a few stores out there that have the black boxed version...
