Dalmore 12 Year Old 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.

Reviews for Dalmore 12 Year Old
Pineapple upsidedown cake, which sadly doesn't have a dusting of cinnamon, and didn't include a steam train journey to get there..
The dark gold colour was enchanting to gaze into, but kept an unbiased mindframe in the tasting.

On the nose; Straight away, images of caramelised banana followed by a strong pineapple upside down cake presence.

A fresher sweetness than the Lagavulin 16 that I marginally preferred. It was that of a tropical or pineapple nature, rather than a honey, Demerara, molasses or sugar sweetness, but not as fresh as say, the sweetness of a crisp apple or pear.

A slight saltiness came through, but no complexities or further nuance was brought to the table.

With water to open it up a tad, it became more savoury for me, with no smokiness, but more unburnt charcoal.

It was frustrating.

If it took me on a steam train journey through the hills and lochs to get me to the pineapple upsidedown cake, which sadly wasn't lightly christened with any cinnamon, nutmeg or dusted chocolate that I so wanted to experience from this, I'd have probably marked it higher than the Lagavulin 16, which I scored an 8.5.

A frustrating 7.5, not quite an 8.

Exquisite. Sumptuous. A winner!
I get notes of caramel and fruitcake to begin with with a calm coffee and toffee apple finish. My brother bought my my first and my wife then bought me my second bottle. I love this whisky more and more each time I drink it. Goes down beautifully neat or with a drop of water to open it up if you’re new to single malts.

No mid-range...
Little mids...finish creeps in but overall...the looks deceived.

Simple and Enjoyable
Not going to bore you with recollections of "front nose this, and body taste that, notes of blah blah, pretentious exposition to make me sound sophisticated...", f`ing yawn. It's a good scotch is you want something mild. Smooth and enjoyable. Definitely for those who prefer a scotch with little to no peat/smokiness. It's also light on the bandage taste as well, which is a bonus for me.

Buy it. Try it. Don't like it? don't buy it again. Not everything is for everyone. Everything is for everyone to try at least once.

Bought mine for $60 in the US.

Big mouth feel. Very smooth but not sweet. I prefer peated malts but I'd much rather serve this to guests who don't. I can't see anyone disliking it.

Sherry Smoothness
Mild on the nose, the taste is simple but outstanding. Absolutely full of sherry with subtle notes of other flavours like citrus. And probably the smoothest whisky I've had so far, goes down so easily it's best to buy several bottles at once
