High hopes for one of my earliest purchases, and it was ok. Drawn to the unnaturally beautiful colour and nice packaging, my first few samples were candy, and caramel, and buttery. But that faded over a couple of months. Nice whisky, but not worth the price. And while I thought the initial flavor profile was for me, I simultaneously expanded my palate on other drams. This quickly proved that I was wrong about my preference.

I had the chance to sample the Dalmore 12 during the same time period. Same result. Nice whisky, but I won't return to it with my own money.

This was purchased during a road trip to the US. I SERIOUSLY would not touch Dalmore at Canadian prices. Not worth it.

I've found the Dalmore 12 yr to be nice - however a bit steep for $50 (can get the Glendronach 12 yr, or the Aberlour 12 yr Non-Chill Filter for the same price).

At the same store I can get the Aberlour A'bunadh batch #49 for $63, and the lone bottle of 15 yr Dalmore collects dust at $79.

It seems hit/miss with these Dalmores; either you love'em, or they're just ok...I'm more of the later, and for their pricing - there's better value out there.

Agreed. Better quality out there and better pricing. Glendronach 12, Glenfarclas 105 and A'bunadh are all great, and amazing value by comparison.
