Member Reviews and Ratings of Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve
A couple drops of water open this excellent dram up and really let it shine. Just the aroma is enticing but the flavor is excellent. The caramel and smoke blend perfectly.
Fantastic flavor. Really love it!! The fruity flavors come out strong, but you don’t miss any of that whiskey taste.
Amazing! Great with a cigar or without.
This is fantastic. Citrus notes right off the top and a chocolate finish. I really enjoyed this.
I loved this!
Smooth with citrus and sweet but not a thick sweet. Very light
Very good, but very different. Darker and heavier than most scotch, even the well aged ones. Citrus and honey up front. Light peat on the finish. Slight notes of tobacco and maybe coffee? Tastes very smooth neat, which is the only way to drink it. It loses all of its complexity on ice.
Cherry, tart, plums, and the linger does seem like exhaling smoke!
Straight to top 2. It's like..... I don't know how to explain it but I'll try. If you're having a worst day of your life, drink this. This'll make all your worries go away and you WILL be walking on sunshine again.
Orange, chocolate and spicy. At the mouth dry with coffee, some sherry, almonds. Well integrated alcohol for a not so warm feeling and long aftertaste
Tonight's drink is Dalmore Cigar Malt from the "For the Love of Cigars" sampler. I paired it with a 2011 Lost City Lancero.. if the scotch doesn't get along with Opus, it wont be a bottle on my shelf. It smells great and I know I would like the flavor so I smoked half way through my cigar before taking my first sip. First drink was sweet and very rich. It's a heavy scotch. I get a lot of caramel. I'm glad I went with a full flavor cigar. They are complementing each other well. The scotch is smooth and velvety so it takes the black pepper spicey edge off the Opus blend. It's also bringing more of a leather flavor out of the cigar when I usually get prominent cedar notes from Opus... to be honest, with this pairing, this scotch almost tastes like a rum. Interesting. Not sure if I'll pick up a bottle or not. It's very heavy and rich.
I am very skeptical of whiskies that exceed $100 in price, but this comes very close to the hype! One of the best Highland scotches I've ever had; rich, very well balanced, slight smoke & oak.
Definitely “caramely”. Refined. Goes well with a cigar (of course)
I'm not typically a Scotch drinker but this was incredibly smooth and paired wonderfully with a full-bodied smoke.
Great scotch. I've had better ones from this brand & better for this price point & less. But I do enjoy it with a good cigar.
I thought this would be a good match for me as I like smoky whisky, but I found this one less to my liking.
WOW....Very smooth,nice flavor..And I don't drink scotch...But this was Really Nice...
Paired with a Connecticut leaf cigar made a very enjoyable experience.
I hold this Dalmore up with the 18 yr. Delicious. I dont care for a heavy cigar as it completely washes away this splendid scotch. Cant have that! lol
Had this along with a cigar, and they were a perfect match. Just take a smell of this and you'll be sold - and it tastes even better! Love this Dalmore!
Very smooth. Smokey.
Just amazing! Makes me happy to simply smell it.
Good flavor. Not much of a smoke lover but this one has just the right mix.
Good drink, has some bite for a DALMORE
great tasting with nice, inviting aroma, simply smooth
Very smooth with a hint of heat. Caramel forward with a taste of chocolate aftertaste.
Amazing. Unique. Expensive
One of my favorites so far in my whisky adventures
Loads of toffee, toast with jam, honey, vanilla and salted caramel on the nose and mouth with this one. The sherry cask finishing really adds a beautiful flavour. Full bodied rich and round this one is delicious.
Amazing. Delicious. Astounding. I get a maple/caramel nose, but an unbelievable front end to this scotch. So smooth, so tasty. No burn. Just wonderment. Oh, so tasty.
Can't go wrong with a Dalmore. Great with a medium to robust cigar, brings out the Sherry and sweet notes! Very nice!!
Wery nice and smoth. A directly sweetness and after a while the tobacco came forward. Has a long aftertaste. 91 points of 100. One of my favorites. Butt o which that 44% should be 46-48% alcohol. Ill think ot had helped the finale tuch of the sweetness and the tobacco.
My third taste from the tasting box, this was my favorite and seemed to pair very well with my Rocky Patel Decade. Dalmore seemed to bring out more flavor in the cigar! Loved this bottle!
Outstanding with a Padron
Not my favorite taste, too sharp at the end
Perfect with pipe or cigar. My favorite by far. Buttery caramel finish. This cigar malt won 1st place in a blind taste test among other scotches in Havana, 2001.
Amazing, my non-whiskey drinking wife even liked it
Not my favorite...
A very tasty scotch that paired nicely with my liga privada #9
This lovely step above the Dalmore 12 is a far richer, caramelized cousin. Silky smooth toffee and hints of coffee, chocolate, sherry graze the palate on this clean scotch.
While expensive for a non age statement, it does what it's intended for; pair with a cigar and you've got a winning combination. Comparable to the Dalmore 15.
What a shame, several years back before they stopped production of the really great Cogar malt I picked up several bottles while I was visiting Wyoming for $ 39. Still have one unopened bottle
I really like the flavors and mild complexity of this one
