— God damn
— Definitely in the top 3 whiskeys I have tasted... smooth without being subtle, VERY good with a cigar, but just as good without... drink with or immediately after eating grilled/BBQ chicken or red meat.

Member Reviews and Ratings of The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve (700mL)
Refined taste with a smoothness that brings out the taste of the cigars
Not bad. A bit salty. Tastes like a highland. A bit anemic. So many better options. But solid.
This is an interesting scotch. For those who have significant scotch experience, it's fairly unsurprising. That could be good or bad, to me it felt like a solid spirit. I wish there was a bit longer of a finish, likely that's do to chill filtration, I didn't look that up so I don't know that, but I added water, and there was no fracturing of the spirit which would suggest this is chill filtered, but it's solid if not incredibly interesting. It won't create any memories, but it's solidly shippable. In fairness I drank this with my two siblings, and one, a general Brandy and cocktail drinker, loved it even more than the Brandy this came with, and the other, a spirit newcomer, found it bland. I found it uninspired but pleasant enough.
Disappointing. Had this whisky years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dalmore took it offline and it’s recent reappearance seemed fated. But the price was significantly higher than before. So I ordered the cigar tasting box. Glad for that. The malt is hotter than I would expect at open and the peat actually tastes like stale cigar. There are vanilla and sherry notes with chocolate but they’re fleeting and the finish is leather. Save your money. Or buy Lagavulin 16 or Dalmore 15 or something else.
It is a very good, rich, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has a clean & moreish birth; while rich & elegant life leads to a fluid death of medium length with notes of lemon, orange zest, clove & a hint of cinnamon.
Amazing balance of Cinnamon on top of all other flavors
When actually paired with a cigar, this was amazing. Got a taste in my sampler and had to order a bottle!
Definitely in the top 3 whiskeys I have tasted... smooth without being subtle, VERY good with a cigar, but just as good without... drink with or immediately after eating grilled/BBQ chicken or red meat.
Excellent. Very smooth. A little sweet for a scotch. Perfectly paired with my Romeo y Julieta.
Very nice and smooth
Nice scent of chocolate on the nose, taste of caramel and sherry up front. Nice finish with a bit of chocolate and a slight kick. Solid scotch!
A nice dram but overhyped. Having tasted it several times to be sure I wasn’t missing something it is a slight disappointment: not as sherried or bigboned as glenfarclas 17 years old not as refined and ethereal as glendronach 15 years old it is not a malt that invites me over and over again to discover some more of its complexity. I understand why it combined well with cigars, but for me it is a good, decent dram, on the expensive side for what it offers.
Definitely worth the price on this one! If you drink this one any other way than NEAT, I hope someone slaps you!!! The unique flavor of this Dalmore stands above the crowd of Cigar Malts!!! There is simply no comparison.
Very smooth and sweet. Great with a robusto cigar.
Very nice scotch. A bit of chocolate and coffee on the nose with a hint of wood and smoke. Taste has a nice light smoke, but it really comes alive with a little bit of cold water. The water seems to smooth out the heat and lets some of the fruit sweetness shine.
Enjoyed the aroma more than the taste. Didn't get any sweetnes but semi-smooth at first followed with bitter end. No go for me.
Wood and spice nose. Pleasantly strong spice and caramel notes with a lingering sweet finish.
Very smooth flavor with a perfect amount of Smokey flavor that improves with each sip
Very smooth. Rich taste.
I’m not a fan of dark chocolate so there’s a lot to be desired with the finish of this one.
Too smoky for me but 😎
One of my favorites. Goes best with a steak and a nice cigar.
Nose: figs, chocolate, sherry and some smoke
Taste: smoky sherry, dark chocolate, some fruit
Sweet up front and with a subtle bite.
Love this scotch!!! I’ll be adding a bottle to my home whisky bar soon sweet, smooth and a great finish.
An exceptional whiskey, smooth, flavorful, with a great finish. I’ll drink this one as often as I can afford it
The depth of flavor is astounding
Has a dark note to it that could pair well with a cigar.
Smooth drink. The best I’ve tasted from this company so far.
This goes very nicely with a cigar
I absolutely love this Scotch. Love the Cabernet notes
A smooth great tasting scotch.
Loved this whiskey!!!
Perfect!! Worth every penny!!
I am impressed with the taste of oranges, sherry and chocolate. Smooth with a long finish. Very good
This is good, don't smoke, don't like it. This goes to the top ten
Close, but no cigar,” which means “almost correct, but not quite". Oh my.. this is truly the Dram that memories are made from.. Gentlemen beware that if this to be shared willfully and with your pair I would certainly regret not to be there. Not for me but for you the true pleasure of of this share is something not to miss. So sexy and smooth - some may not need a cigar.
Love it! Great with a cigar.
love the orange finish
Had a dram and it is very good goes very well with a maduro and a nice conversation.
Love this!!! Little spice, caramel, citrus, vanilla and then the smoke and smoothness lays in. Very, very good. I enjoyed it tell the last drop.
Very smooth, nice sipper
I have to first say - I'm not a fan of scotch - so probably my tastes don't count here - that said - this is better than any scotch I've tried. It is quite smoky. If I liked scotch - I would likely like this one!
This scotch and a nice cigar are heaven on earth. Wonderful!
On first tasting I thought there was a bit too much of an ashtray taste. With an ice cube it softened up to a lovely smooth whisky
Would definitely have again.
Smoky and sharp.
Very flavor filled scotch. Smooth with a nice tobacco taste. Would be great with a Cigar
Very nice smooth Scotch. Will be buying this one for the home bar.
The smell is Devine. Like fresh tobacco. Very mild taste. Very very nice.
