Dalmore's stunning 18 year old Highland malt is as rich, fruity and spicy as you could ever want from a Dalmore. Kudos to Richard Paterson for creating another veritable chocolate orange of a whisky - a surefire hit, and great for the colder months. It is aged for 14 years in American oak, followed by three years in Matusalem sherry butts, before a final year in sherry butts.
Nose: Fruity and spicy with notes of vanilla, orange zest and potpourri, marmalade and sweet milk chocolate. A touch of leather and sultana.
Palate: A delicious fireside dram with notes of chocolate raisins, juicy citrus, stewed fruits, old sherry and pepper.
Finish: A long, fruity finish ending on almond, buttery toffee apples and cocoa.

One of my favorites from the Dalmore distillery. Aged luxury, indeed. Complex nose with hints of dried fruit and sherries oak. The flavor is complex and layered, with deep sherried oak and chocolate. The finish is warm and layered as well; warm and fruity and somewhat gently barley-sweet to dry, sherried oak.

This my second bottle of the Dalmore 18 yr. This is an absolutely perfect whiskey! Smooth and flavorful.

I have to agree with 'antifreeze' - the filtering and caramel color (not to mention the price) are ruining what is otherwise the best dark/sweet scotch. I'd say it's my frequent go-to, but I haven't bought a bottle in over 2 years. I'm still searching for a substitute or improvement over this - Gentleman Jack suffices.

I am having this whisky for the for the first time. I had a few pegs and can tell that it is good and on the stronger side. But I enjoy laphroaig better.

My desert island whisky. Smooth as a velvet snake with a depth that allows a new flavour with every drop of water. You can disagree but then we must duel. If you find you balk at the price, the Dalmore 12 offers a cheaper alternative.

There are some elements of wood that detract from the experience. Close to great, but not quite there. /Joakim

I have had three x 3cl of this in the last 12 months. #1: Exquisite! Fruit cake and raisins, a beautiful long lingering aftertaste. #2: I later bought a 3cl for Xmas and was very disappointed. Pleasant but nothing outstanding or any lingering flavour. #3: Again - disappointing. Somewhat harsh - had this 3cl not been supplied by Master of Malt I could have been tempted to query the contents? Tasted like a supermarket blended whisky.All down to personal taste I suppose?

I bought a bottle of Dalmore Valour in a duty free in Paris. It was apparently a "travel exclusive". My favourite Dalmore by far. Found it much more smooth than the 18yr. So sad, I cannot buy it regularly.

This was my introduction bottle to a Highland region whisky and I must say it was a pleasant encounter. This 18yr is not only is smooth and flavorful in which you shouldn''t underestimate its ability to smoother your palate. It makes you really appreciate the time spent on making such a fine whisky, especially aging it in 3 ways before bottled.

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.

don't get me wrong this is a quality whisky, but there have been other whiskies i've enjoyed more for less money like Dalmore Cigar Malt, Bunnhabhain 18, Ballantines 17 to name but a few.

Great presentation. I keep the box on my bookshelf. It looks like a book, so it keeps the bar raiders aka friends away. This whiskey really grew on me. I didn't like it at first because with the sherry influence I was expecting the sweetness of a Glendronach, or the punch of a Macallan 18. I didn't get that here. It's a totally different beast all together. At first I felt it was flat and didn't offer much. However, after I drank a few more drams I started to pick up on the nut notes like walnuts, brazil nuts, and peanuts, and I fell in love. It's definitely worth the money. Great dram. Something unexpected.

I really love Dalmore's whiskies but honestly have to say that 15 yrs is even better than this... Cigar malt lose in taste for both.
24th June 2014
Very good. A good winter dram with its chocolates notes and dark fruit. But...remove the chill filtering and colouring and it will be so much better. I can only imagine those flavours with filtering.

My son brought me a bottle back from Scotland when he was there. This is the nicest scotch I have ever had, smooth tasting, nice notes a good balance on the palate. Hope I get another bottle this year.
1st June 2014
Wow, I'm very fond of this Dalmore 18 YO.One of my favourite for sure!I would only imagine how it would taste the bottle I saw at the "Whisky Experience" in Edimburg last year, a Dalmore distilled in 1966 and now aged 48 YO!gp
19th March 2014
I don't normally do this, at all. But after having gone through tons of different scotches I simply must let the rest of the world know how great this malt actually is. Yes the price maybe near to or over 100 Euro's, but it is worth every cent of that. Pick it up! NOW!

This is an incredible spirit...one of my favourites along with the smoky Jura Prophecy and the Ardbeg.

Read the reviews and gave it a try.Beautiful ...... The nicest whisky I have tasted.The only problem was the wife wanted a taste and her eyes opened wide as she tasted it.Lovely she said....... Dam ,we shared the bottle over the weekend.Got myself another one......
3rd August 2013
Smooth and delicious... Outstanding dram, without doubt my favourite by a country mile! ... If you like this, try glenfarclas... Very decent but still no match for the dalmore... Even the 12yo is superior!
20th July 2013
A very good Dalmore, and good value for money. If you can push your budget a bit higher, try the King Alexander III. I still believe that Dalmore 18 and King Alexander III are the best whiskeys ever made.
21st March 2013
Really enjoyed this whisky. Great smell of burnt butterscotch. Very enjoyable
10th February 2013
This is the nicest whisky I've sampled so far. The aroma is pleasing, and the flavor is quite enjoyable. It's not overly sweet--just right. Given the price, I can't see myself buying a bottle, but the sample was well worth a try. Karl

Dalmore's 18 year is exactly as the notes state and exactly what you'd expect / want from this range, a good dram.
18th June 2012
In-your-face warmth & sweetness like I'd never experienced before. Powerful sherry from start to finish. I'm in love with this. Hate watching the bottle slowly disappear.
