The latest expression of Dalmore is an 18yo, and it's just as smooth, spicy and sweet as fans of this distillery would hope.

    Wow. If you're a fan of the Dalmore, this is the ticket...though again, as with the 15, a word of caution. Assuming you've tried and loved their entry-level 12 year old single malt, don't expect the same satiny-smoothness here. Yes, the 18 is smooth compared to other scotches, but it has a much more obvious burn to it than the 12 or 15 (probably due to the 43% alcohol). The flavour here is intense beyond reason - all the grapey, heavily-sherried richness of the 12 and the 15 are here in spades, but with an added hint of anise/liquorice-ness and a rough oakiness, along with a distinct cinnamon note. This scotch literally perfumes itself out of the glass, much like a harsh Islay scotch's fumes creep out. If you love the 12 and the 15, and simply want all those flavours maxed out to the inth degree, then the 18 is the ticket. A luxurious, full-bodied highland scotch well-worth trying.

    A fantastic dram, in this price range so so reasonable. Nose is rich, smooth & deep; you can just breath this in forever. Upon taking a sip, the arrival is sweet, complex and packed with character. Had me smacking my lips. Don''t ponder upon getting a bottle, just do it - and you''ll be welcomed into the warm world of great whisky appreciation.

    This was my introduction bottle to a Highland region whisky and I must say it was a pleasant encounter. This 18yr is not only is smooth and flavorful in which you shouldn''t underestimate its ability to smoother your palate. It makes you really appreciate the time spent on making such a fine whisky, especially aging it in 3 ways before bottled.

    When I first tried it I was unimpressed, but on a second sitting when my palate was more prepared I was taken on a flavour journey. It's like drinking the highlands themselves. My tasting companions and I tasted all sorts going on, there's the usual 'whiskey' flavours that seem to crop up in most but this has heather and pine and a whole assortment of delicate beautifully balanced flavours. A good one to buy for something a little different but not extreme.

    A good match for, say, Macallan 18yo at any time, Dalmore 18 delivers that classic sherried whisky character, with a tangerine orange peel finish. A very satisfying dram in my opinion.

    An amazing whisky, but make sure you let it breatH and use a decanter if you have one. Goes down a treat!!
