Review #484. Dalmore 12yr

Review #484 | /r/Scotch Review #173 – Dalmore 12 Year

The Schtick: This is the base, age stated release in Dalmore’s core line.


Distiller: Dalmore

Bottler: Dalmore

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 12 Years

Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)

Source: Sample


Nose: Mildly lactic, sweet raisin bread, sweet caramel and faint cocoa. There’s some odd fruitiness, melons and faint banana.

Taste: Thin and again, mildly lactic. faint brown sugar, tastes young, almost as if there is some new make spirit in the mix. Raisin bread notes are here again.

Finish: Short and mildly funky. Lactic, sweet fruitiness, that young note dominates again.

Overall: This is nothing like I expected and nothing like I really remember Dalmore spirit to be like. Interesting. I am really looking forward to trying more expressions again to formally review. That said, I just didn’t love this one.

Thanks for reading!
