Troy,
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.

This is fantastic. Citrus notes right off the top and a chocolate finish. I really enjoyed this.

Jenna
Jenna,
Smooth with citrus and sweet but not a thick sweet. Very light
 
Joseph
Joseph,
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.

Mat,
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.

Eduardo,
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.

Craig,
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.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Definitely “caramely”. Refined. Goes well with a cigar (of course)
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
I'm not typically a Scotch drinker but this was incredibly smooth and paired wonderfully with a full-bodied smoke.
 
Blake
Blake,
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.
 
Magnus
Magnus,
I thought this would be a good match for me as I like smoky whisky, but I found this one less to my liking.

Paired with a Connecticut leaf cigar made a very enjoyable experience.
 
Ross
Ross,
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
 
Rick
Rick,
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!

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.
 
Jason
Jason,
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.
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Can't go wrong with a Dalmore. Great with a medium to robust cigar, brings out the Sherry and sweet notes! Very nice!!
 
Tony
Tony,
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.
 
Scott
Scott,
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!
 
Rodney
Rodney,
Outstanding with a Padron
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Not my favorite taste, too sharp at the end
 
Greg
Greg,
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.

Excellent!

Amazing, my non-whiskey drinking wife even liked it

A very tasty scotch that paired nicely with my liga privada #9
 
Alex
Alex,
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.
 
Chris
Chris,
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.
 
Robert
Robert,
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
 
Rubia
Rubia,
I really like the flavors and mild complexity of this one
