Dalmore 15 Year Old Reviews

Very nice indeed

Im not an expert, but know what I like and the 15 year old is delicious. For someone to say they poured it down the sink, well each to their own. For me its one of the best I have tasted so far

Far better whiskies for the money.

The nose is similar to the Macallan 12 sherry Cask, just lighter and not quite so sulphurous. It hints at being a rich flavorful whisky, but I was sorely disappointed. Very VERY light and far too subtle (for subtle read 'weak'). Sadly a really dull and disappointing whiskey, especially for this level.

26th July 2020

an interesting and enjoyable dram

This 15 is a fair bit drier and more "sour" if thats the word, than most sherrywood whiskies... initial taste after a glengoyne was, "im not keen on this" but after a whle I got to like its character.
aniseed and bitter dark chocolate are at back of the slight sourness, which was accentuated by the sweeter palate of the Goyne.
Alas i feel it needs to be a little stronger to do it justice; 40% just doesn't hit the mark. After saying that its an interesting and enjoyable dram, which i think will grow on me.

25th July 2020

Tastes like a cheap 20 dollar whiskey

So harsh, not smooth at all and gets worse after each glass, poured it down the sink after the third glass, horrible! Never again..

15th July 2020

Different, but great

I can believe the difference in tastes here. The Dalmore is a very different whisky. It has a curious liquorice/anise tang to it. A bit between a Speyside and an Islay. It is a great part of the whisky journey and I loved it.

21st June 2020


This is one of the worst scotches that I’ve ever had. I got it as a gift from duty free. It’s been in my bar for a few years and I had one drink left so I finished off the bottle. There is a bad aftertaste and the notes on the pallet do not taste well together. Will never buy or drink dalmore again

25th May 2020

Great scotch

Beautiful from the first mouthful until the last

22nd May 2020


Can't believe the love/hate reviews. Are we tasting the same single malt? I personally loved the mellow flavours and finish.

20th May 2020

Very pleasent on the nose and soft on the palate

Very soft on the palette, definitely get fruitcake and sherry on the nose, chocolate and curacao on the palate with a soft lingering smokey espresso.
Expected more intensity for the money but not disappointed in the product, however I feel it is over priced.

7th May 2020


Never again will i buy a Dalmore. Maybe i hit a bad batch but what i just opened cant be what the guys drank who gave 5 stars

24th April 2020


The best we tried so far.....overc30 years

12th April 2020

Tasty stuff

Beautifully rich and smooth dram, with a chocolate tasting finish, couldn’t recommend enough

9th February 2020

First whisky i ever poured down the sink

It was so bad i couldn't finish it. Took two zips and couldn't take a third. Had to pour the rest down the sink. The only other whisky that was as bad was a 20 bucks bottle from the discounter.

23rd January 2020

Stay away

One of the worst Drinks i ever had. Nothing compares. This is a 3/100. The "Next worse" was a Jack Daniels scoring a solid 30/100 (on my personal scale). Better spend it on an Aberlour if you want Caramel and dark fruits

23rd January 2020

My favourite.... has 4 bottles in 2 years!

I bought this for myself one year and loved it. Every year since my partner has bought me a bottle - and it does not last very long.
I have no idea what everyone else is complaining about, to me it is superb. My go-to whisky, for every occasion...

10th January 2020

Good Whisky

Good whisky, you can actually taste the different flavours, and smell different aromas. Good job Dalmore, good job.

1st January 2020

Not for me

This Whisky holds, what Vodka promises you. Tastes ok and has no taste.

Well seriously, i've come to love whisky for its nose ane complex flavour. From smokey Laphroaigs to sweet Dalwhinnies I've come to appreciate the different styles of uk's whisky art. But this one is something I never tasted and hopefully never will taste again. Boring in the nose. A slight wiff of dark fruits and something else I cant yet define. It reminded me of wet paper.
The taste was slightly sweet, toffee or choclate, vanishing into a non existing after taste within seconds. The pro was, I didn't have a single bit of burn from alcohol.

If you ever drank a Glenfidditch, Aberlour, or any other good whisky, imagine its complexity and strength in taste and aroma reduced to maybe 5-10% and the Dalmore is what you get. Cheers.

21st November 2019

“Smooth” but so dull and disappointing

If you’re looking for a “smooth” whisky which has a good brand behind it then this might be for you.

However, if you’re looking for a whisky that is stimulating and exciting then avoid at all costs! It’s watery and severely lacking in flavour at 40% and chill filtered. What makes it worse is that there are some nice sherry notes muffled in the background which makes you feel like they took good whisky out of the casks and then ruined it during the bottling process. It’s a bit like listening to your favourite music through a well soundproofed door. This whisky just makes me sad, it’s like they chill-filtered the heart and soul out of it and I feel like almost anything from £30 and up will decimate this in a head-to-head. My advice would be to buy glendronach 12 or Benriach 10 or Benromach 15 if you want sherry cask whisky and you can save yourself some money and disappointment.

18th November 2019

Great whiskey


1st November 2019

Stay away

I agree with many other reviewers, there is something very wrong with Dalmore 15. They should recall it and reimburse customers.

27th August 2019

The 12 years Is 10 times better

Stay away!!! I bought 2 bottels of this and this is hands down the number 2 worst bottel I hade ever tryed secound only to ledaig 10. The smell is like very old paper from an old book. a little bit of mold an some wet wood. on the palet you get cold cleanlng soap water andold glue.

3rd August 2019

Good. "Try before you buy"

Given as a gift, to be honest I was hesitate to get excited because it has a so-so reputation. I tried it and can say I really enjoy it. Can see myself sipping on it for a while. Not a Top 10 whisky but there are some really interesting notes. Would recommend "Try before you buy" but delightful little gift.

4th July 2019


Do not listen to any of these tossers who are saying this is a weak dram outstanding nose and body won't find better for the money.

22nd June 2019

You are selling water @ the price of single malt

You’ve got to be kidding me!!!

10th June 2019

Pretty harsh but nice

Very rich.. honey and chocolate in a sherry cask. But not one I can drink all night. 2 is enough

18th April 2019


Not a great whisky at all. I’ve tried to give this whisky time to open up but every time I go back to it there’s no real improvement. A couple of drops of water helps slightly, but at only 40% you don’t want to add to much or you end up with weak swill. It’s just slightly fusty, slightly sweet, simple whisky. Certainly not worth the price when you could have a Glenfarclas 15, glenmorangie 12 Quinta Ruban or the like for cheaper than this. Avoid.

13th April 2019

Better than the 18 and 12

Nose: round, honey, chocolate, orange, rosewater.

Palate: juicy, tropical fruits, slight herbal

Finish: warm, a bit of smoke, malt

1st February 2019


I received my first bottle of Dalmore 15 as a Christmas present this past year. The bottle is most attractive but the attraction ends there. The scotch smells bad and tastes bad. It seems some others have the same reaction. Just wondering if there was a bad batch.

19th January 2019

Smooth and comforting

Excellent beginner whiskey for those who want something rich in flavour but quite gentle. Notes of delicious fruit cake and a mellow, warming finish.

13th January 2019


Great , had the whole bottle.....could not walk for 2 days

24th December 2018

Excellent gift

Really smooth warming whisky
Good value for money

22nd December 2018

Banging drop

Brought a bottle as had tried it at a whiskey festival... A full bottle did not disappoint or last long at all..

Well worth every penny... So so smooth.. Divine

6th November 2018

How dear?

You say it's expensive? Yes, but the price is yet to come ...

28th October 2018

Beautiful smooth dram

Smooth and balanced. Delivers dark chocolate, orange and a hint of ginger on the palate. Bought a bootleg after a tasting last Christmas and have just bought another. My current favourite.

27th July 2018

Truly love this one!

I never liked scotch until I tasted this! It is very smooth and does not leave a burning after taste! I highly recommend!

24th July 2018

Awesome in it's awesomeness.

Outstanding, a real treat of smooth balanced flavour. I love this....🤗

3rd May 2018

Could be A LOT better

Nose: A strong Marmiade sent. Tiny amount of peat. rasins, almonds, brown sugar. Overall, very inviteful.
Mouth: tiny hints of liqorish and plums and a lasting cinnamon taste, but EVERYTHING is nulled by a weak watery taste. Overall, disapointing.
Finish: it's there with just the slightest sherry influence at the back of the throut and a warm feel that ligures, but it could be so much better.
Overall, unsatisfying.
if you want a Dalmore in your collection, stick with the cheaper 12, its less of a blow, the low APV hinders what could make this a great whiskey. Good, but it could be so much better.

15th March 2018


Smooth. Notes of chocolate, peppermint, fruit, butterscotch, caramel

21st November 2017

Premium brand not premium whisky

Dalmore to me seem to put all the emphasis on creating a premium brand rather than creating good whisky.

This is chill filtered, colourant added and bottled at the minimum legal strength in the UK of 40%. But sold at quite a premium price in a very flashy bottle.

It's a rather uninspiring whisky. Good for a starter who wants to look sophisticated.

It's warming, plenty of dried fruit notes, the finish is over quickly, not very complex at all.

There are better sherries whiskies out there for the price imo.

28th September 2017

Delicate and smooth with pronounced flavor

I was reluctant to try this one, given the ridiculous prices here in the states. It is, however, the most palatable whisky I've ever had. I hesitate to use the word 'smooth' in a compliment but it is. Yet somehow it retains a strong flavor profile and complexity. It is sweet and somewhat dry. Many of the descriptors seem accurate. There's no mistaking it as a sherried whisky. I consider this a bargain price on MoM but would likely never pay the average price I find locally. Get a bottle, but don't pay too much.

20th June 2017

Excellent dram

What an amazing drink. I was bought it for my birthday. I was blown away with how easy on the palate it is. And what a finish. It's better than the 18yr old and that's a good dram

19th June 2017

A real nice surprise

For me this was a real tasting adventure. At the beginning i was not impressed, all to sweet for me. After a while i discovered new flavours and a rich body full of different spicy flavours. I mostly drink islay and campbeltown so this was a real good surprise for me. Just give it a little time and try to learn to know this whiskey

7th June 2017


Bought a bottle two years ago and it was a treasure. Complex and sweet with a spicy side and notes of fruit, Christmas cake, and chocolate. The bottle I bought today is hands down awful. Weird wood flavors and no complexities or savory flavors. Just eww, how sad.

4th March 2017



25th February 2017

Pretty decent

The nose is pretty good chocolate orange with a subtle note of fruitcake. Palate is Medium with a nice finish. For the price I think it's reasonable.

29th January 2017

One dimensional

Read a lot of positive reviews for this one. However I'm a bit dissapointed. On the nose I got a slight whiff of chocolate then alcohol that's it. The taste was very smooth but not very complex. No burn very easy to drink neat. I would say it's good for someone who's never had whisky before but for the price it's not complex enough.

24th January 2017

Wasted 15 years

Very disappointed with this one. Fantastic packaging but you can't drink that! Beautifully presented colour wise. That's all the good bits out of the way. Totally lacking anything like a complex nose, just a whiff of caramel. Taste barely exists. Slight caramel taste then alcohol burn. There is absolutely nothing to like about this. Just feel sorry for the spirit being locked away in a barrel for 15 years.

21st January 2017

Very Drinkable

My wife and I tried this one. She is not a big Scotch drinker, but instantly picked up on the sweetness of it. Had a very nice finish too, with to me a citrusy taste. We both liked this one.

14th December 2016

The Mrs and I love it

We do a fair bit of tasting, but are from being any sort of experts, we just knew what we like. This is one that we sampled at Christmas 2015 amongst others and it turned out to be our favourite of the night. We just sampled another 7 tonight and the Dalmore once again came out on top of the lot we tried, the others varying from £40-80 a bottle.
Shame to read that there have been bad batches, but I'd give it a chance and will be buying a bottle soon, it'll sit very nicely in the collection and have a place of its own.

3rd September 2016


Hats off to the guys at Dalmore, prob the best 15yo for the money!

19th August 2016

Novice Reviewer...Mature Whisky

I will not shy away from saying that I am a novice reviewer and that my entry into the world of whisky appreciation has only just begun, yet this is such a delightful drop that I wanted to convey my thoughts. I started some months ago, aided and abetted by my wife, into a whisky journey; starting with simple single malts of tender years and working our way outwards to singles of greater years. A simple plan born out of an attempt to train our palettes and appreciation first, before moving on to the more complex territory of blended malts and even older years! The Dalmore found its way to my door following a 12 year old Auchentoshan (triple distilled) and, despite my fondness for the smoothness and depth of the former, the Dalmore was something else altogether; the Auchentoshan almost felt thin by comparison, such is the richness and fruit-packed nature of this perfectly balanced whisky. Not overly sweet, it has a pure vanilla and honey fragrance, backed up with cherry, cinnamon, sticky marmalade and the faintest of smoke finishes that is absolutely superb! Smooth, yet characterful, complex yet rounded, this is something I will look forward to drinking again and would recommend that you seek it to track down a bottle of Dalmore's King Alexander III!

28th July 2016

Young Connoisseur

Well, for the age and money, probably one of my first choices out of any whiskey on the market, also one of my first choices out of the Dalmore range! Expect quality and rich wonderful flavors such as Christmas-cake, raisins, dark cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg. The smell is easy, because it smells like Christmas, YUM! If your new to this whiskey and don't like it, well you wont like whiskey at all, so dont bother writing a review! Dalmore it worth every penny, this particular one beats a lot of 18 year old whiskies in every shape and form. Dalmore never really fluctuates in flavor as it is something I can rely on as a mouthwatering whiskey, ooh yeah, fifth bottle in!

28th July 2016

Oloroso heaven

Apparently, judging by the negative reviews? I am lucky to have bought one of a good batch.
Holy crap this is amazing. Got introduced to the Dalmore with the 12 and reading about the 15 got me intrigued. And I am very glad I bought this bottle today.

25th May 2016

It is not the same

I've had a couple of bottles of this over the last couple of years and actually ranked it as my favourite whisky with its sweet caramel flavour and it's smooth finish. However, I received a bottle this Christmas as a present and it is bad! The sweetness has all but disappeared along with the smoothness. This batch should have been rebranded as something else as it certainly isn't the Dalmore 15 I have come to know and love. The problem now is, do I ever buy a bottle of this again (at £50-£60 a bottle) if there is a chance it's going to be the same as this!

9th April 2016

Very Smooth

Good taste, very smooth,chocolate taste, goes very well with Indian spicy food.

20th March 2016

I must have got lucky

After seeing how hit and miss this dram appears to be with the audience (must be quality control?) on here I was glad to find I must have got a good batch!

Red apple and ginger with maybe a hint of treacle in there somewhere

Smooth finish with a peppery hit

6th February 2016

mr T Greer

Received as a gift and think it one of the best malts I have tasted.If I could afford to I would drink it all the time. Very smooth and no after burn like some malts most enjoyable.

6th January 2016


Bought a bottle from DFS after reading rave reviews on this sherry monster. However, like some other folks here, the bottling I have is just horrible. I agree with "caramel flavoured fire water". No complexity and a touch of sweetness. Caramel on the nose. Then the alcohol burn.

I don't know what to do with the rest of the bottle :(

5th January 2016

Nice name for a light-tasting whiskey

First time trying this. Decent start with sweet sherry but lacking in a robust after-taste. Will use this as a starter if in aa drinking a chain of other whiskies. Recommended for light-tasting cuisines like Chinese but not on its own.

1st January 2016


I always add a touch of water to my whiskey, The Dalmore lends itself to this. I found it smooth to the tongue with a peppery finish. I especially enjoyed holding it in my mouth and allowing the flavors to build. As for the price, I think all scotch whiskey is over priced but that is life.

17th December 2015

Meaty butterscotch

I have had Dalmore 15 a few times, sometimes it is awesome and then the next bottle is meh. I really wish I knew how to pick the good bottle ahead of time.

This bottle was great! First sniff, "ooh, is that some butterscotch?" a bit of resin, but a good round nose. Add a drop of water and the umami comes right out, doubling down on that butterscotch. It was great! I almost want to ask if there is a chance the wrong scotch was put into the dram bottle.

With a sipping it some nice honey/butterscotch notes, a good orange tartness, and it filled the mouth with a great, round, warm feeling.

Aftertaste was good too, left me with just the right amount of happiness, and the saltiness I attributed to the butterscotch flavor lingers.

Well done! If it was consistently like this, I would buy a bottle! And then worry about drinking it too fast.

Final Note: I am doing the 2015 advent calendar. As a result, I get one drink at it to decide if I like it enough to buy more. Sometimes I need to drink something three or four times to make up my mind. Thus, my rating is based on a one-time drink experience.

7th December 2015

A Dram Worth Tasting

This was the first dram of the Advent Calendar we just received as a Christmas gift. A fine way to start 24 tastings. I never understand reviews that talk about this flavor or that flavor. I just know what I like and I liked this Dalmore expression very much. I've had Dalmore before and this is a worthy addition to those I've tasted earlier.

6th December 2015


I guess I got lucky judging by the posts complaining about quality issues.

This was absolutely brilliant. Very smooth. Very nice. I could drink it all year long.

6th December 2015

Mr N. Marsh

Very nice, mellow, nice nose,
Easy to drink.

6th December 2015

Much as I love the decoration of the bottle, and the smell...not for me.

First, let me say I'm a relative newbie, trying to learn about Scotch. My tastes are developing and not sophisticated. My favorites to date are Glenmorrangie Quinta Ruban and Glendronach Parliament 21 so you know my flavor bias.
I put together a non peaty Advent Calendar to try new things, and this Dalmore 15 is Day One. I've always admired the bottles with their silver stag ornament. Romantic. I was heartened by the smell, which was warm and toffee ish but with a hint of fire in the back. The taste however was sharp, acrid and very much in contrast to the nose. Burnt going down. Next added a few drops of water which made the initial taste smoother and more palatable but then it turned into something kind of like acidic vegetables, and still burned like crazy when I swallowed. Not for me. From some of the other comments it seems possible that this label might be inconsistent. I may give it a try again. But not eagerly.

2nd December 2015

Could not finish it

I confirm what previous reviewers are saying: something has gone very wrong with this whisky.

23rd October 2015

Andy P

The mixed reviews here are understandable once you've opened and then had 3-4 drams over a period. I was bought a bottle as a present and the nose is very inviting, lots of toffee and chocolate/orange with a sherry backdrop. The problem is the palate and lasting taste which is not smooth, leaving a taste of wood and alcohol. After 3-4 attempts I have found it much smoother and pleasant mixed with tepid water, leaving less of a burnt taste (wood /coffee).

26th August 2015


Got a bottle of this from Duty Free hoping for a decent sip - after which I don't know what to do with the rest of the litre. There's some taste of bad wood and very stinging alcohol, and that's the end of it.

Nowadays I may take a sip of this, just a few tiny drops, then move on to some proper drink and behold, instantly you tell how good the other one is. The magic works every time, even for cheap blends like the red label.

24th August 2015

Sad but true

Just opened another bottle of this stuff - and it's definitely not the same as I had a month ago.
So I agree with other unlucky guys here. There's definitely something wrong with quality control.

6th August 2015

I agree with prior reviewer - something is wrong here

Bought this bottle several months back and brought with me on vacation. Caramel-flavored firewater nails it. Given the positive reviews I've read on this Scotch, I was excited. Now after opening I am quite disappointed. No complexity, just an alcohol burn. Does this distillery have quality control issues? I believe those who rated this highly, I just do not think those folks tasted what I just opened

5th August 2015

There's something wrong here

I had some of this at a tasting a couple of years ago, and it was by far the best of the whiskies I tasted. The bottle I've just had delivered is definitely not the same stuff. I think the best description I can come up with is "caramel-flavoured firewater". It's tedious, slightly sweetened, one-dimensional. There's little on the nose, and the palate gives you nothing but a lingering sense of ethyl alcohol. I'm very disappointed, and I suspect that there's either some major quality control issues, or somewhere along the line, there's been some shenanigans.

18th July 2015

After dinner dessert bomb

Unique. Has a slightly cloying flavor - I guess it's the orange chocolate) I'm not crazy for but it's deep, complex, rich, and obviously well-made. A little seaweed saltiness would help balance the orange - chocolate and sweetness for me. Close to being one of the best ever in my book.

11th July 2015

What a Nose, what a smooth drink of heaven

I am usually a Peaty filled whiskey lover. Laph or Lag any day. But knowing what to expect before trying this marvel, made for a wonderful experience. Nose: I could keep it in the glass all day. One of more pleasant to breathe in. It has such a smooth feel and end. Compared to others that are of the same family, this is very hard to beat. Wonderful.

15th June 2015

A good Dalmore

I have met a few from the Dalmore family and this one has not let me down. Let it breath a while for it to deliver its full aroma. The taste is not overly complex and really opens up with a splash of water. Does not beat the 18 year old but comes close. I was quite pleased with this reasonably priced single malt.

7th April 2015

No, no, no

Overpriced, overhyped. Maybe I hit a bad batch? Who knows. Would definitely benefit from higher abv and no chill filtering. Got most of the classic Dalmore notes - oranges, chocolate, leather, oak, ash. All very flat though, finish is just leather, ash and a nasty burn. I'd be pissed off at paying £25 for this. I payed £44.

3rd March 2015


Definitely a poperi smell, sherry presence, malted barley, X-Mas Fruit Cake, Orange body, lemon cough drops. Smooth finish. Light dryness. Enjoyed more than the King Alexander III but still favor Dalmore 18yr.

28th February 2015

Not bad but not worth the $

The nose is very unique, and very pleasant. I spent a few minutes nosing the glass and thought for sure I was in for a great whisky experience - until I took a drink. The palate flattens out and does not follow up well with the nose, and really lacked the distinct, original flavour that the nose hinted at. Not terrible, but very disappointing. Nice warming finish though. If I had paid $60-70 for this bottle, I would have been okay with it. But for the $114 (BC Liquor Stores in Canada) I feel it is very over priced.

31st December 2014

Dalmore 15

Ahhh Dalmore, always a favorite after previously trying the 12 and 18 year old versions, but can the 15 year old live up to this high standards?

Nose - Soft with chocolate hints, smells very inviting indeed!

Taste - Rich, strong flavour with the orange/fruit hints which is expected from the Dalmore range. With a smooth, yet warming finish which lingers a little.

Overall very nice and delicious as expected from the Dalmore family, it's one of those which gives you what you expect - a very nice whisky with a rich and smooth taste. Very hard to beat for what it costs.

8th December 2014

Tastes like I've punched a deer

Right on the nose

8th December 2014


not fantastic straight out of the bottle but it opens up after a while to really reveal that fullbodied winter spicy taste. The taste ends a little to quickly though... so one needs to keep sipping :)

8th December 2014


Nose: Toffee, Vanilla, Orange, Cocoa powder, Floral notes, Some smoke and notes of Cream Sherry.

Palate: Viscous and chewy on the palate with notes of burnt toffee and Mandarins, Cream Sherry and hints of smoke.

Finish: A Long Finish with notes of spiced orange, Malt and almonds.

8th December 2014

Easy and smooth

Another Christmassy choice for the advent calendar. Heavily orange nose with a little oak. Spicy start with cloves and allspice that turns floral with more air. Orange flavours dominate, but a touch of water brings out some smoke and toastiness. It's a very smooth whisky - not very challenging perhaps, but easy-going and pleasing enough.

8th December 2014

Very nice

I have not tried this before 2008, but I do enjoy the "new" one. i get a lot of red apples and ginger. Nice sherry and spice notes and a drying finish. Really want the Cigar Malt now! CM

1st December 2014


This used to be one of the best whiskies in the world, but after 2008 it turned into a cheap caramel colored alcoholic beverage which is good only for windscreen washing tank. Every illegal gypsy distillery in Bulgaria produces better stuff. So mister Richard Paterson, go ahead, continue embarrassing yourself acting clown in idiotic TV shows and expect somebody to buy your crap.

17th October 2014

Amazing Scotch

High-grade scotch, very smooth yet flavorful. Sweet and savory with lots of interesting features. Highly recommended for a relaxing night!

24th September 2014


Simply delicious. The notes of chocolate orange and a subtle hint of winter spice are clearly present.

22nd August 2014

One to savour

I was lucky enought to be given a glass of this whiskey last night, and it was a real treat. I found the aroma to be quite spicey, though not overly so (despite my heavy cold). On the palette I loved the ginger that came through. Something to savour, but not for too long as it can take over. Taste it right and it does give just enough warmth. The finish, though short, was pleasant. It didn't giveme that pleasant 'warm me through on a freezing cold night' feeling, but I was at least a warming hug. I enjoyed the complexity of this whiskey. It kept me interested for the evening. It was easy to drink, and great to share.

2nd August 2014

Not to be rushed

Great for relaxing with a friend and forgetting your troubles. This is a beautiful whisky to lift your mood and give you a warm glow. I love it!

Well Hello There Madam...

I'm fairly new to Whisky, only been drinking it for about 18 months, and have gotten to try a fair few as I tend to try something new with each purchase. I don't get all the 'subtle notes of this and that' but it's just a delicious, deep and articulate. I have only tried a handful of 15yr Singles, but this is by far my favourite so far and I think this will be my go-to whisky from now on. Got a bottle in the post after a sample came a few weeks ago, will enjoy mine tonight!

Not as immediately arresting as the 12yr old... but ultimately richer

The 12 yr old version of The Dalmore might appear to beat this one straight out of the gate, but give it a few minutes and you'll observe the tightly packed rich flavours & scents begin to peel out gently and assault your mouth with a fullness and great taste that ends quickly. Making you take successive sips to rekindle the moments. Needless to say I finished my suppliers stock of this and the 12yr old.

I have tasted a bottle of Dalmore whiskey & I loved it

OOHAA!! Like what Al Pacino said on the movie

Scent of a Woman. Like their perfume it needs respect and time to savour. What a creamy,fantastic,sweet,complex DRAM. My friends this is what Scotch Whisky is all about.

Let me give some advice without being an elitist. If you don't understand or you're a little illiterate in nosing or even appreciating what scotch is all about, don't review a product base on your taste bud that is train for BELL or a cheap bottle of bourbon. I am NO expert but what one thing Learned about life is to appreciate and respect the things that other people love. So do all of us a favour go review the products that you like with RESPECT and a little bit of intelligence OK. NOW get out of the room!!!

Sweet if unchallenging single malt

Nice dram, sweet and with zests of orange. As others have said, sweet smell and smooth taste, but no finish. Calling it a beginners malt sounds slightly patronising but I do agree with this theory

Lovely little number

very nice whiskey and I very rarely drink. loved bottle design. kids wanted the silver stag on bottle but broke it getting it off!

8th November 2013

Well what did you expect for the price?

Nice nose, nice original taste and then nothing. Great beginner dram.

19th October 2013

smooth like a silk

Friend of mine had brought this Dalmore from Germany we five of us had the drink for the first time, it is smooth and enjoyed till the last drop. we recommend this one and shall have it next time.

27th September 2013

Aroma: raisins, oak, orange liqueur.
Palate: nuts, chocolate, spices. Orange peel and cinnamon. Finish: wood, oranges with spices. Bit chalk and chocolate.
Comments: pleasant, drinkable, but lacks power (cause of strength?), not for my taste.

25th September 2013

Well spend! Very good dram.....

I have tasted a lot of single malt whiskies, on my way back from holland I decided to buy this Dalmore 15, and what a buy one of the nicest single malts I have tasted. Surely I recommend this one.

31st August 2013

th foot

Friend of mine bought it for me for a gift. Knew I was a bourbon only drinker. So good I was shocked. Can't keep it in the house-all my friends develop excuses to come over so they can drink it.
Very smooth, minimal peat, great finish. Plays well in a crowd-no one I know has turned it down

Smooth.... Clean... An easy favourite in the books.

I'm a Laphroaig single malt drinker and am used to a heavily peated scotch. My experience with the Dalmore was then surprising as the flavour was not as intense, but the smooth, clean and easy finish made this a very pleasant drop. Enjoyed next to a log fire outdoors in winter

21st July 2013

Great - prob my fav whisky

Nice orange taste smooth and mellow aftertaste, still find it hard to beat this dram

4th May 2013

number one

My number 1, picked this on up on a whim on my way back from Abu dubai after area bottles of jacks silver select and chivas regals.

Simply outstanding, a nice medium finish with notes of orange and choclate, only problem is its to nice ! 3rd bottle in 9 months ! Poor wallet but very happy nose and pallet !

Better than the king Alexander III IMO !

1st May 2013

Terrific price

I must say that $70 for this bottle is much cheaper than I've seen it priced elsewhere. However, I was quite disappointed by the Dalmore 15. It tastes like swill to me. The caramel flavoring agent is overpowering and the scotch is two dimensional and disappointing.

5th March 2013

Smooth stuff

First delving into Dalmore and can't get enough of this flavorful Scotch. Chocalately, fruity and bursting with flavor. Awesome nose and wonderful finish. Grab a bottle. I'm off to check out the other expressions soon.

Dalmore 15

I have tasted Dalmore 15 for the first time, and I am not a scotch drinker
but this is some good shit!!! I love it!!

2nd January 2013

Very nice!

I bought a bottle of this for Christmas and am very very pleased! Extremely smooth, nice velvet feel in the mouth with a very pleasent after taste.

27th December 2012

Great in a crowd

This bottle played excellently to a crowd with a pallet running from Kentucky burbon only drinkers to the most choosy of scotch drinkers. Something, not easily accomplished.

26th November 2012

Can't get enough!

A firm favourite of mine.
You just want to roll it around in your mouth and savour all the little tastes that steadily reveal themselves
A beautifully velvety balanced and enjoyable drink!

I have tasted a bottle of Dalmore whiskey & I loved it

16th October 2012


I'm not a scotch drinker, yet I decided to explore my pallet this holiday season,actually the only time I have tried it was the day we buried my Father 12 years in honor of Him I will try the Delmore 15,he would probably prefer the King Alexander, but I will start here!

Teachers and office workers

teachers and office workers stick to teachers or bells or if you feel like splashing out buy a bottle of grouse prrrrrrrp!

Chocolate Raisins a Plenty

Love this dram, tried it for the first time last summer and was blown away with the deep dark chocolate taste and burstly with winter spice. This malt is one of my favorites from the last 12 months. Well done Dalmore...


15th March 2011

Damn Tasty

I initially bought this as it just looked really delicious and it is. I usually go for the smoky peaty styles but bought this as a change. It's very smooth and for a change i noticed some of the flavours mentioned in the tasting notes. Well worth a try.

13th December 2010

Oh Yeah


6th December 2010

I love it

It´s good whisky I drink a bottle per month I recommend.

A One to Savour!

Some malts are made to sip over a long period and this is one of them. A nose of Orange & Sherry leads to a syrupy taste which lingers most pleasantly. Dalmore consistently provides quality malts.

Why a Stag?

I don't understand why this bottle has a stag on it? The contents do not taste like stag at all! I bought this really under false pretences it tastes just like a whisky. It is not a good drink for teachers or office workers.
