Deer, Bear & Moose Linkwood 1992
David,
Overall very light and refreshing. Nose is strong grape sweetness wafting right out of the glass. Apples and honey follow. Similar notes on the palate, with a medium body and pleasant acidity. Doesn’t at all taste like 50%+ abv, more like a mature, excellent white wine. Finish is bright and refreshing, an excellent summer whisky. Reminded me of an older highland park minus the peatiness. Only held back on the rating because of the cost and, while delicious, I think it lacked a one-of-a-kind uniqueness.

Robert,
There are scotches you slug down and give to your friends who say they don't like scotches because they have little traditional character that some people find too much. Those are fine at times, but for serious drinking I like complexity and nuance. This one satisfies. It's light in color like a Highland (think Dalwhinnie), with apple and just a hint of spice on the nose, a well-rounded and refined but complex palate with just enough peat to honor the traditional scotch flavor. In fact the peat is surprising for a Speyside, but is far less intense than Islays and Talisker -- it's a little peaty without any overtones of iodine. Oak flavors come through but are refined, free of medicinal notes. It has sweetness but is not cloying -- despite the fact that it is bottled at 52.8%, it is not nearly as rugged and challenging as many cask-strength spirits. Altogether pretty dang good. It sits at the very back of my upper shelf where I am not tempted to finish it except with those who are truly worthy.

This is very, very good. One of the most unique bottle I've experienced.

Nicholas,
This is a beautiful scotch that has a sweet fruity nose with a juicy mouth feel and an oak on the palate that compliments all of the more subtle flavors. A truly brilliant rendition of a scotch!

Nic,
A lovely mild sherry bomb of sweet red fruits and raisins. Not as explosive as an Aberlour A'bunadh but pleasant all the same. Need to revisit it to delve deeper into secondary notes

Michael,
Very savory...so glad to have it

Collin,
Citrusy and sweet without tasting like a bag of fruit snacks; great to have that much flavor with a dry profile
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Mark,
Very nice citrus sweet start with a dry nut finish. So glade I was able to experience. Son-in-law would like a bottle. Told him I would like one too.

Giulio,
Smooth but packs a punch. Leaves some spice behind and leaves you wanting more

Nicholas,
So good, like a more refined version of the 13, but with more marzipan character, drank so mich right away and now babying the last ounce left in bottle

Thomas,
Outstanding flavor, just enough smoke with a hint of vanilla/ caramel at the finish.
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Adam,
Really nice floral aroma, notes of cream and citrus. Tastes of leather, not a smokiness but definitely an earthiness to it. Not too thick or oily, very light consistency. Tastes of apple, orange and lemon on the finish. The caramel and vanilla notes remain throughout the experience. Very good, but a bit pricey for what it was.

Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Jyrki,
At first go it wasn't that good. It tasted like hand sanitizer (maybe something I had eaten previously...). Second go within two weeks, oh my lord it was good. Sweet with oily finish. I'd buy a second bottle in a sec. Sweet on the nose too. Love it!

Don,
"This is the best scotch I've ever tasted' said my friend. I liked it too.
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Thomas,
Deer, Bear & Moose is extremely smooth. The subtle flavors of vanilla and a bit of peat are wonderful. I highly recommend it!
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Adam,
Delicious, complex, definitely worth the money! Would highly recommend if you like Islays. Now if only if it were peated....
Deer, Bear & Moose Craigellachie 2006
David,
Intense, enjoyable, full flavor. Absolutely amazing.
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Jeremy,
Incredibly delicious, perfectly balanced whisky. Zero burn from the high proof because it's so damned sweet without being too sweet. It's fruity and spicy, like a sparkly pear and clove whisky. Oily, too, in a very good way. And the finish is like sitting by a warm fire with another dram of the same whisky in your hand.

guest,
Delicious, sweet and well-balanced! Notes of butterscotch and a nice finish.

Michael,
My first Deer, Bear etc and my first cask strength scotch...I’m glad I got my hands in this. Instant oily coating on my palette, which I love and full of sherry

Harrison,
This was a tough rate for me because I am not a fan of peat. That being said, I've had much more complete drams of whisky for a much lower price point. I'm unsure if it's the even cooler temperatures of the smaller islands that hinders the maturation, but this one tastes very young.

Marques,
Absolutely delicious. Would gladly buy this again given the chance.
Deer, Bear & Moose Dalmore 2004
Richard,
Sweet, Sherry, delicious. Hints of pear on the palate. Has a bite at the finish I find must be tempered with a splash of water. Can't give this a perfect 10, but I would buy again and be happy to drink more. I can't stop myself from pouring another dram every time I return to the bar. Soon the bottle will be gone.

Burton,
This is my second Deer, Bear & Moose expression and I am very impressed with both. This one has a great oily mouth feel that I enjoy. The nose is fruit and vanilla. A hint of caramel candy. The palate is more berries, vanilla and caramel. Enough alcohol to warm your chest. Delicious.
Deer, Bear & Moose Craigellachie 2006
Marques,
Absolutely fantastic. Ignore the 1 star reviews please, this is an outstanding dram.

This is an awesome expression, oily, smooth with a ton of honey and vanilla on the palete. Not long, but has a great finish!

John,
Good clean finish not to boozy for how high in alchohol

Eduardo,
After having fought tooth and nail with FedEx to finally receive the bottle, I can only say it was well worth the wait and the fight for the first glass out of the bottle. Absolutely splendid on the palette; ranging from a soft fruity touch to a nice vanilla backing brought home with the moderate peppery taste of the ABV level. I hope to gain entry for the next bottle release as this for me was a hit and can’t wait to see what others will be brought to the table.
Deer, Bear & Moose Craigellachie 2006
Bruce,
This was a bit hot right out of the bottle. Added some water and it smoothed it right out. The vanilla flavors just jumped out of the glass. A great sipping whisky that I will enjoy slowly. The exciting part is by adding water I can make it go much farther.
Deer, Bear & Moose Craigellachie 2006
Burton,
This one is right in the center of my attraction template. Unfilled filtered, so it has a lush mouth feel. No added coloring - check. Notes of fruit and vanilla. 58.8 abv gives it a sizzle on the finish that highlights that pepper note. Delicious!
Deer, Bear & Moose Inchgower 1995
Tucker,
This is ridiculously tasty. Soft smoky start quickly fading in to a light honey, oak and oily finish. Really enjoy sipping it. Defintely an "occasion" bottle to save for myself or very close friends.
Deer, Bear & Moose Glentauchers 1996
Michael,
I admit that I am more of a Bourbon, Sour Mash and Rye guy, not much of the Scotch type, not to fond of the peaty flavor. But, this bottle of Deer, Bear & Moose (Glentauchers 1996) was very smooth with a slight peaty after taste. Quite enjoyable, has me thinking that Scotch ain’t so bad after all. A great topper for a celebration, first year at hunting camp that everybody was retired. I past the bottle around the camp fire on the first night (several times) to toast the fact we were all finally retired, then every night thereafter until the bottle was empty (3 more nights). Everyone gives an astounding two thumbs up to Deer, Bear & Moose. Thank You for this great dram and for broadening my palate.

As a follow up the more I have this one the more I love it. I did not like it at first but as I tasted it more I really love all the flavors

Dustin,
Nice and strong for cold winter pick up,love the clove aftertaste,not for softies ,enjoy when you need some guts!
Deer, Bear & Moose Orkney Island 2002
Robert,
Very good scotch the Smokey flavor melds well with the spicy and chocolate flavors. I see a lot of people put it on ice will have to try that next time to see if it opens up the flavors.
Deer, Bear & Moose Orkney Island 2002
Charles,
Excellent scotch. The cask strength needs a bit of water to open the flavour.
