Interesting fact… Dalmore 16 Year Old 1996 (cask 9816) - Old Malt Cask (Hunter Laing) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Dalmore 16 Year Old 1996 (cask 9816) - Old Malt Cask (Hunter Laing) whiskey, instead of whisky.
This is a hot whisky and needs some water to settle down. For 16 years I expected a little more refinement but it just seems young and harsh. Their are decent fruits notes, most notably oranges and a bit of chocolate (Jaffa Cakes). However, it remains a tad harsh.
