Tim,
This is for the sherry cask drinkers. It is a little bit spicy with a nice smooth finish. It is a great bottle of scotch for the price. I also appreciate the bottle design. The top 3 stars are for scotches that blow me away. My 7 star rating is for scotches that I will stock in the home bar and aren't so expensive that I won't drink them.

Wonderful flavor and color with distinct sherry
 
Ty
Ty,
Nice flavor profile and enjoyable. I do get a nice wisp of smoke. Dalmore 12 is let down by the fact it's chill filtered and bottled at 40%. It's a little thin and lacks richness as a result.

Kyle,
Not too much kick, a bit of sweetness, not my favorite but I'd drink it again

You can't go wrong buying this one. Extremely smooth and flavorful. The caramel and dark chocolate really stood out for me.

Great
 
Greg
Greg,
A caramel sherried chocolate flavor with a very slight oily-ness about. The sherry lends a small floral background to it as well. Very drinkable very pleasant. Elaborately sweet nose, definitely take a sniff before sipping.
 
Chris
Chris,
Best 12 year you can buy. Outshines vintages from other distilleries years older.
 
Shana
Shana,
Love the spice, hints of citrus in the middle and finish notes, the first notes on the palette, however, are a bit too dull and lacking any distinct flavor(s) for my personal preference
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Flavored, colored scotch. Probably the most disappointing scotch I've had in a while. I cannot recommend this.
 
Jon
Jon,
My personal favorite brand of Scotch now. The initial nose is not at all what you would expect from an unpeated highland, but once you taste the dram it all makes sense. Very full bodied and extremely unique. Dalmore is a must try for any Scotch lover, just because of how original it is.
 
Jody
Jody,
Luv it! So distinct and different.
 
James
James,
Nuts and a hint of smoke. Quite a characterful dram!
 
Graham
Graham,
Very smooth drink. I picked up caramel and chocolate right away and a finish with a hint of raisin. Still time to enjoy and experience it more.

An excellent light Highland. A nice alternative to The Macallan. Although the price is starting to approach that of the Macallan which is unfortunate.

Abundance of dark red fruits on to the nose and palate along with spicy notes.
 
William
William,
Good, but not my favorite. I need to drink more Scotch for more comparisons.
 
Stafone
Stafone,
This is a good Scotch. Lots of Orange zest and a sweet aroma that reminds me of brown sugar.

Nice sherry, sweet, toffee and carmel
 
Chris

Smooth on the palette with a nice mouthfeel and finishes with a spicy kick. The opposite of Abelour.

Very nice

I received a bottle for Christmas, sorry for all my friends, too good to share
 
Michael
Michael,
Strong, intense Sherry notes with raisins. Toasted vanilla with hints of milk (not dark) chocolate. Almond is there, but it's hard to find. Licorice.
 
guest
guest,
Nice sweet fruity citrusy malty whisky. Nothing will blow your mind but it is sure to please.
 
William
William,
Simply amazing! With nose of chocolate espresso and orange peel, the taste of spice, almond and oranges with a finish of smooth spice and sherry, this is one of my go-to bottles.

Good midrange scotch
