Review #487 | /r/Scotch Review #175 – Dalmore 15yr
The Schtick: This is the older brother to Dalmore 12, both are age stated releases in Dalmore’s core line of products.
ABV: 40% ABV
Age: 15 Years
Nose: Sweet caramel, sherry and raisins. Like sweet raisin bread. Some cinnamon.
Taste: Medium mouthfeel, not a lot of heat. Some oaky bitterness, clove, sweet vanilla. Very bourbon like combined with the sherry notes. Like a big loaf of raisin bread.
Finish: Short but pleasantly sweet, sherry is most prominent here.
Overall: This is good, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s unique in that it tastes like a loaf of raisin bread but it doesn’t wow me.
