Dalmore’s trademark style is luscious notes of orange, chocolate and spices, and the 18 Year Old bottling is a terrific example. Aged in both bourbon and sherry casks, it has seductive notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and candied orange on the nose, followed by a full-bodied, spicy palate of cinnamon and stewed fruit.Tasting Notes (1)

Very smooth, but I have to say I prefer the younger bottles.
This is a good sherry bomb
I acquired a taste for whisky – and the ability to tell scotch varieties apart – quite late in life. As a relative newbie, therefore, one of the simplest dimensions of distinction is whether one is an Islay person or not. The Dalmore is definitely a whisky for those in the "not Islay" camp. I'd venture as far as to say it's the canonical non-Islay scotch. Not peaty or noticeably smoky at all, but still possessing the rich caramel, vanilla, toffee notes along with a mildly spicy touch. It is one of those rare expressions that starts smooth, stays smooth and finishes smooth. Now, smooth doesn't mean devoid of complexity. The 18 expression is sweeter and smoother than it's 15-year-old sibling, and it makes for a top notch pour over nothing. If you do feel compelled, though, add a cube of ice, not water. You want the perfectly balanced texture to be diluted gradually, not instantly. I read about some color being added or this not being non-chill filtered - doesn't matter much, to my palate at least. If there's further need to justify my rating, how about this - I first tried Dalmore 18 at a quaint restaurant in the Highlands during my trip to Scotland and fell in love with it; when I returned States-side I realized it costs at least twice if not more as it costs in the UK. Therefore, even with shipping included, I get a better deal at Whiskey Exchange than anywhere local (assuming it's even available). I rate this scotch five stars because it's so good I am willing to pay international shipping for it. Go ahead, get this, pour yourself a wee dram (and then not a wee dram... And then 5 more). It'll be tomorrow morning when you're finally done, and you wouldn't be able to wait for the evening cigar or truffles all over again, just to pour one more.
Great Taste. Smooth to enjoy have it on the rocks. They do add a lil color so wanted to mention.
A perfectly balanced and smooth whiskey. Delicious flavour with just the right hint of smokeynes.
