ABV: 59.1% ABV
Age: 11 Years
Nose: Graham cracker, waffles, fresh baked cake, vanilla bean, toffee and sweet almond.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, a bit hot. Amaretto, fresh baked bread, toffee and apple. Heat grows over time. Some pepper.
Finish: Long, hot, lots of apple and vanilla.
Overall: Really great nose, ok palate and ok finish. It’s super interesting just how different IB Dalmore is from OB Dalmore. Unfortunately, this one isn’t a winner, either. I bet some better aging would have smoothed this sucker out.
Thanks for reading!
