Hmm, as smooth as a Highland loch on a still summer's evening, with a golden sunset hue to boot. Sherry-like, smooth, honeyed, but witj more than enough oomph for this palate. I'll be at the distillery soon to undertake in-depth research and analysis. Cheers!

This is excellent. I purchased this, due to owning a Macallan 18 year Old and not wanting to finish it too quickly due to its price! The Dalmore is an excellent sherry oaked Whisky and has not disappointed me after the quite amazing Macallan 18.. Be warned that it would not suit those who like their Whisky to pack a punch and the finish is quite short. However for me personally this is a delicious dram. Very very good and very smooth!

Just getting into Whisky as would have to say that is this the best whisky's that I've ever tried. It's beautiful .. Dalmore, you have a customer for life !!

If you are into sherry-flavored scotch, this one is for your. Not as refined and subtle as the 18yo, but very rewarding.

Beautiful, deep, dark, fruity, lasting flavours. Sit in front of the log fire in winter and enjoy!!!

Lovely whisky, smooth, sweet, oily, reminds me of crème brûlée. Noses beyond its years for me but not without some minor imperfections and the finish is shorter than I anticipated. Comes at a bit of a premium when compared to Lagavulin 16 or Glenlivet Nadurra for example.

A very tasty and complex 15yr old. Great value for money

Yes there's depth and character but it's swamped by the sherry wood. Interesting whisky right enough but not one I'd go back to. I do like their 12 year old though.

Truely a work of art, the nicest whisky I have ever tried at 15 years and great value for money.

This one is very complex for its young age, a must try for all sherry cask lovers

The 12 y old is one of my favourite drams, but found this just a little to sweet and with less kick for my liking.

It's good to see that reviewers here clearly know what they're talking about. I did a VIP Dalmore distillery tour, thanks to my wife as a wedding present, and some of the staff there think this is slightly nicer than the 18. Obviously that accounts for personal preference, but evidence suggests that the 15 must be up there with the very best. I want one - please Santa!

Awwh! This was sensationally boosted!

This is an exceptional scotch and is much better than the Glenfarclas 15 yr old. Both are heavily sherried but the Dalmore has more body and is smoother. I think Dalmore is really making a big move up in my book.

Smooth, very easy drinking. Perhaps more orange than sherry. No sharpness or acidity. As someone else said - seductive. Too easy to drink, it'll take you by surprise.

First of all, I'm a huge Dalmore fan. This was very polite - almost too polite. Thankfully it's charming and elegant enough to get away with it. The sherry is big and winey but not overpowering like in some Speys (I love that too!). Excellent and complex. Dalmore should bump it up to 46% for those who want a bit more bite though.

Totally blown away by the 15yo. The 12yo was wonderful, but this is so fragrant and gentle. Compared it to some other siingle malts very nice 15yo I've had in for 10 years, and this was so mellow and rich in flavour. Especially popular with my wife, who described it as a cross between brandy and whisky.

This newish 15 yo is quite simply superb. Dalmore just seems to produce better and better malts! More sherry than the 12 yo but beautifully balanced with an incredible smooth finish. I am working my way through the Dalmore offerings and look forward to the new 18yo.
