Nose: Malty and utterly Dalmore. Seville orange zest, Parfait Amour, malty cereal, barley and chocolate. Creamy vanilla fudge, tropical fruit with a vaguely vinous quality.
Palate: Medium, rounded. Winter berries, spice, zesty orange. Liqueurs emerge; Gran Marnier, kirsch and Frangelico.
Finish: Peppery with well-integrated oak and the claret makes a last minute appearance.
Strange, but good
Having tried a fairly good selection of scotch over the past few years, I have been exploring some of the tastes the highland has to offer. This was a superb dram and really took me by surprise. Complex notes with deep flavours and spice. Seemed to evolve with each drop.

Red Means Chocolatey Danger
Still the best scotch I have very tried, and I've tried a few over $1000+ bottles. If you're willing to pay $200 for a bottle, there is no better value.

Had my first dram of the King with a posh curry last weekend - the perfect combination. This is a seriously zingy liquid - the colour was rich red/brown, literally asking you to tuck in. The overriding flavour that came through for me was that of chocolate liquor, with a hint of winter spice. Perfect for a cold evening and a great alternative to a Highland Park 25yo which is my fave winter tipple. A very unique treat and at the price I think this makes a very welcome addition to a high quality malt collection - seriously, if you like a curry this provides a great finish.

I got a 50cl sample of this from a Dalmore 15yo gift pack. The nose I thought was truly wonderful. It had nice complexity to it, with many layers of fruit, chocolate, and light peat to discover. The palate was also fairly complex, but seemed disconnected with the nose, as if each the six woods made an appearance in either the nose or palate, but not both. For example, the palate was drier than the nose would indicate. All in all, it was pretty good, though I can't see myself paying £112 for a whole bottle.

Had a glass of this last night at a restaurant - think it'll be difficult to find anything better for a cold winter's evening. Chocolate and vanilla came through, with a lovely pepper finish. Colour is beautiful.
