What's in a name? Dalmore 12 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Dalmore 12 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

Dalmore 12 Bottling Note

Launched in late 2008 to replace the previous 12 year old, this single malt from the Dalmore distillery is a toasty, coffee-rich dram with beautifully spice notes and a thick mouthfeel. Very rich for a 12 year old.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A warm coffee house in Seattle; roasting beans, the oily nuttiness in a fine espresso, there are little notes of malt and cereal and butter from the pastry counter with rich orange from the fruit bowl on the counter.

Palate: Notes of Seville marmalade and triple sec with winter spices and fruitcake. Zesty cocoa and milk chocolate.

Finish: Medium, oranges.

User Reviews of the Dalmore 12 Year Old

Very nice indeed!

Sour apple, pear, and citrus aromas, along with butter and sea breeze. Peppery flavor, floral, leather, with a nice punch of nuttiness during the finish. Caramel syrupy mouthfeel. Be very judicious with water, but a drop or two brings out lots of nut flavor and smooths out the finish.

Manhattan Memories

Tonight I made a manhattan from the last of a Dalmore 12 year old scotch that was given to my husband prior to 2008 (he passed away in September 2008). He loved manhattans, and I decided to remember him tonight by having one in his memory. I enjoyed it immensely.

Mildew, yes, but I like it?

That soaked wood taste stands out for me. Not a top pick but a nice change.

10th March 2014

Mildew and wet ash trays

If whiskey could go off this is what it would taste like. Whilst there are some floral and nutty aromas in the background, the smell of mildew is overpowering and the after-taste instantly reminded me of a time when I was about 12 and had a swig of my dads near empty can of VB, only to discover he'd been using it as an ashtray! Tastes nothing like a $70 bottle of Highland Malt should taste. Don't waste your money on this one

It's not revolting?

The whiskey had very complex flavors. It started of smooth and tasted almost like butter, but had a nice kick to the end. After having a bite of a pear tart and then tasting the whiskey I enjoyed it a lot more. In the end I would say that it's not revolting?

Great

Heart-warming, sweet and sort of a curvy-feminine sensation. Really enjoyable and special.

Joy in a glass

I'm now having trouble enjoying the drinking of other 12 year old Scotches after this. The scent and taste combine to make drinking this Dalmore nothing but a celebration. No ice, no mixer, no unnecessary additions. Nothing but straight from the bottle, into a glass and flowed into the senses. The bottle was over too quickly. I've had as good and even better, but not at this price and/or years.

Get real

you guys can all suck my balls. this dram is the best for its price

10th January 2014

More than I expected.

The sweetness can be smelled on this lovely dram. Almost too sweet, but the feeling of fullness in the mouth makes up for it. Finish is way too short, though. Still, can't help but think of this as a favorite in my young scotch trying life.

Honey honey

Can't get the fresh honeycomb off the brain. Orange peel plays second fiddle to the bees wax. Simply Devine

batmam

frist bottle of scotch i bought tasteless to me maybe it was just the bottle i bought very disapointed

3rd December 2013

Simply The Best....

The nicest, smoothest, most flavoursome whiskey in Scotland. Unmatched. My World Whiskey Awards (under £45) In joint first we have a Scotsman, Irishman and Japanese Man...... Mr Dalmore, Mr Green Spot and Mr. Yamazaki. Jason Breen

just perfect...delicious

10th October 2013

Expected More

Somewhat disappointed. I tried this is a hotel bar. The smell and the taste were (imo) generally not the greatest, and a bit off putting. Some of the reviews I'd read were very positive on this whisky, and included blind tasting from people entrenched in the whisky industry....I note the review I'd read was dated from 2005 so maybe this latest release isn't as good. This was on my list of bottles to buy. No longer. Off all the whiskies I've tried recently this was the least enjoyable.

6th October 2013

Not a bad dram but not worth the price.

I just had a couple drams glendronach 12 and then tried this next ,I went right back to the dronach and didnt even think of having another dram of dal 12,and the dronachs 10 bucks cheaper O.O

Everything I Was Looking for!

My first ever whisky, and I loved it. The nutty, coffee taste with the lovely finish is perfect! A great introduction to Whisky!

25th August 2013

Great!

Dalmore 12 to me is very Smooth I get a nutty vanilla coffee. I Highly recommend trying it with some good quality dark chocolate, It's beautiful!

21st August 2013

Smooth

Really enjoyed this one... with Cuban cigar with coffee flavour an this... really good combination.

4th August 2013

bitter at throat

The taste just like a very simple malt whisky without surprise. Always feel bitter when swallowing.

30th July 2013

One of the best

It blows my mind why the reviews are so low. This is one of the best i have tried. It's smooth, yet still a lasting taste. Top notch scotch with several aromas and a nice sweet, chocolatey finish. Will always keep one on the shelf for a celebratory occasion.

13th July 2013

Why, tell me why...profits, right?

Stop chill-filtering, adding hideous brown dye and bottle at a slightly higher strength and I'll definitely buy a bottle. Until then Dalmore, wallow in your own self-conscious, pretentiousness. 'Most Expensive Malt' indeed. x

DALMORE 12 YEAROLD TOOK A 64 YEAR OLD TO LONG TO FIND IT

As a great malt drinker I thought I had had the best, but this is excellent malt and I am happy to share

23rd April 2013

My old time favorite

This one is my old time favorite whisky. Tried many different kinds.

7th April 2013

A lovely dram for an evening by the fire.

Got given my first Dalmore 12 as a present. Wonderful citrus and sherry nose. Beautifully smooth on the palate, again with citrus and malt notes and that wonderful sherry finish. Wow, like an old friend to spend the evening with. Leigh H

27th February 2013

It' s ok

As stated it is ok!

12th January 2013

The Best Ever??

A beautiful, smooth dram. Gives a kick without burning out the roof of your mouth. A great present for someone who is a bit nervy about trying a single malt.

Master of Malt Nailed The Taste Profile

I was reading my tasting notes and just read theirs... it's dead on! I had coffee with cream, orange zest, and Christmas pudding written down. They basically nailed it in one fell swoop! Fantastically smooth, and the nose matches the taste almost identically. Nothing to hide in this one... what you see is what you get, and what you get is a pretty damned good dram!

25th December 2012

30th Birthday pressie from my gf's dad! Legend!

NB. My bottle says 43%... But can't find any info on that particular bottle! First impression - Rich, warm, smooth and full. Definite sherry notes, roasted coffee for sure, and underlying caramel. Added some water which I felt made it lose it's body but enhanced the coffee note. Overall, this has a truly great flavour! This evening we've also tasted Tullamore DEW and Ballentine's Finest, and the Dalmore is another world.

It's a good, not too extravagant whisky. But not super-duper. Smart drinkers buy this from

Easily the smoothest and tastiest single malt I've been fortunate to taste.

29th August 2012

ehh

I thought it was rather bland. Maybe I'm just used to laphroig but i didn't find it to be interesting or complex.

22nd April 2012

The Chaps ..

Seattle? Pastry counter? Fruit bowl? While that might be evocative it is just not right, tone it down guys. This is a chill filtered and coloured dram (I have that from the distillers),but with character. It starts sweet and rolls to bitter before coming back to sweet. Loads of interest and flavours along the way. Worth the money? I think so now, but I did not at first taste.

18th March 2012

My first

This was my first bottle of Scotch after drinking only Jack, Eagle Rare, etc... I am now converted. The mix of flavours in this Scotch stand out so well and mix beautifully on the pallet.

20th December 2011

smootth

smoothest scotch tasted so far. even my gf thinks that and she's not drinker at all.

5th December 2011

Worth having a bottle in the cupboard

I tried it after reading the reviews and article in whisky magazine. Very tasty and mellow, an easy drink. Not overly complex but for a £30 whisky its a nice smooth unobtrusive dram. I have better whiskies in my cupboard for sure, but maybe not for this price.

22nd November 2011

Hmmmmmm

hmmmmm, don't quite know what all the fuss is about, Old Pultney is soooooo much better, but hey, still good, ENJOY

Excellent whiskey, definite notes of marmalade and a touch of sweetness. one of my favourites

28th February 2011

Antonio Burrell

The rating for the Scotch should be higher on previous statement

15th November 2010

Antonio Burrell

Love the Scotch, it does have a orange taste on the finish but the sherry and vanilla notes are also prominate. A beautiful blend.

dalmore review

really dissapointed read great reviews but massive let down

17th May 2010

Could be a contender for a daily dram

What you want (well, what I want) in a daily dram is something that is easy to enjoy - this whisky is definately easy to enjoy - very smooth, semi-sweeet - My wife can even enjoy it with an added cube of ice (she is not a whisky person at all). A great Scotch for someone wanting to get into the next level beyond the standards.

12th May 2010

mr.

a great whisky.. I really like the orange and the looooooooooong finish!

16th April 2010

Orange flavour will make a imagination of sweet

ACTUALLY, I don't like orange taste,but I think it's a glorious whisky

14th April 2010

Classy and Cool!

This newer expression of the 12 yo changed from the previous one. The original 12 yo was good but obviously topped up with caramel. This one is much better without the artificial flavouring.Superb mix of orange fruit and cocoa. Slightly expensive for a distillery's basic expression but worth it.

15th December 2009

It's not Dawn French's, it's mine!

Tastes like chocolate oranges, also nutty, peels, some sherry. Love it!
