Sadly no longer in production thanks to Whyte and Mackay's general buffonary this wonderful dram is one my personal favorites.

More of an after dinner sipper than for a session with friends the nose is all Christmas cake mix, you can really get the fruit rind and booze soaked currants, I can almost smell my grand parents drifting off in front a roaring fire after one too many glasses of sherry.

In the mouth it's all the same, lovely warm sherry, glacier cherries and a faint taste of smoked chocolate if such a thing exists, and if it doesn't why the hell not?

In a way I've moved on from lighter whiskies enjoying the heavier sherry Monsters and smoke filled beasts currently on the market but you can still often find me quietly having a moment with a Dalmore.

The Captain.

You tell us it's Christmas in a glass and then mention it's out of production? You tease!

You can buy it, but it's pricey, it was first brought out for around the £35 mark but now, if you can find it, you're looking at £50+, I only don't have a bottle because I know I'd just neck it, my local whisky bar sells it so that keeps me happy.

I've found an online store that's got it for £35, but most are pricing around the £45 mark right now. Royal Mile Whiskies (always my first port of call) doesn't even have any...

Dalmore have replaced it with the Grand Reserve but it's not as good sadly.

I was served this recently - after dinner funnily enough - what a shame its no longer available!

Why was it taken off the market?
