— it's Dalmore, enough said!

— The best of the best! It is smooth with a kick. Yet flavorful and balanced. Be careful because it will sneak up on you.

— Love at first sip. Drink neat (easily done at 40%) and add a touch of water near the end to get even more notes! Amazing taste - not too dry, not overtly sweet. Perfectly balanced.

One of the best 12 year old whiskies I have tasted.

Ordered this off the top shelf at a small seafood place, it was very good.

A very mature and balanced spirit that highlights the knowledge and experience of the brand at a very accessible cost
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Surprisingly close to the 21 yr Dalmore. On the smoother side, decent warmth, great straight.
 
Brian
Brian,
On the sweet side as far as scotches go, but still has that distinctive woody taste. Easy to sip with some light fruit flavors.

I get a nice hint of tobacco and dark chocolate. Enjoyable, to be sure.

Average. Lacking body and depth.

James
James,
Not as light as I'd like nor spicy or proof enough. I wouldn't turn it down, but maybe I don't know how to enjoy it.
 
Kent
Kent,
This really is my favorite scotch. Smooth with a variety of enjoyable flavors.
 
Luke
Luke,
Toast and honey. Fruitcake and raisin. Approachable for all albeit overpriced
 
Eric
Eric,
Leather, light baking spices and good tobacco. There's a touch of smokiness too. Definitely a staple in the collection.
 
John
John,
Very smooth. A taste all it's own. I find the taste Unusual, but pleasing. I prefer the taste of other Scotch Whisky ahead of the Dalmore.
 
Charles
Charles,
Smooth, good taste, right amount of flavor.
 
Richard
Richard,
Proof is too low. Too watery. Taste is pleasant but not enough there, there.
 
Butch
Butch,
Incredible
 
Charles
Charles,
Smooth with oak taste abounding. Finish was solid smooth with no afterburn.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I get raisin on the nose and taste. Sweet deliciousness. Almost done with the bottle and still soo good. A very different experience than any other Scotch that I have tried.

My go to.....
 
George
George,
Good flavor,very smooth.
 
Alex
Alex,
A little to sweet for me, but that's coming from someone who isn't generally a fan of super sherried whisky. HOWEVER - with a fatty pork shank this is hard to beat. Keep it around for fatty meals where it cuts through and shines.
 
ADAM
ADAM,
Dalmore has a good flavor but always seems too oily for my taste. It's a whisky I would order at a bar with a limited selection. Probably a good introductory whiskey.
 
Brad
Brad,
Incredibly Smooth

Charles,
Didn't care for this, had bad after taste for my taste

Just magical. Perfection in a bottle.

Great finish with the sherry influence.

Great scotch. A swish through the mouth opens up the complex tastes within. Very smooth.

complex- with each sip, I can taste something different. Ends on a sweet note almost every sip.
