Customer Rating

Dalmore 12 is aged for the first nine years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, before half is transferred to ex-oloroso sherry casks for the final three years. The result is a whisky with a combination of sweetness and rich, sherried flavours.

    Hands down one of my favorite scotches out there for the price. I prefer it over Johnny Walker blue label.

    A well-crafted malt with a pleasant after taste.

    It may not be fair of me to rate this so low as I'm still a novice and it's probably just not my cup of tea, but this has been my least favorite whisky to date. Frankly it was just too sickeningly sweet, I don't know if it's the flavorings to blame or the sherry casks, but I had to make myself finish this one.

    Disappointed, found too sharp, perhaps it was the foods fault which I had just consumed. Will give another go maybe. Love Christmas cake, orange, plums, prunes, coffee, cinnamon – all the notes others pick out – so should be my ideal...

    Tasted it for the first time in London while on Business! Loved it and would like to buy it when I get back to the states!

    I didn’t like any Scotch before I tried Dalmore. A top shelf Scotch (like Dalmore) is a totally different experience. Great sipping on the rocks.

    We're Glenmorange Lasanta drinkers; thought we would revisit Dalmore again. What a nice Scotch. Pleasant balance of aging in bourbon and sherry cask. Nice tones of vanilla with a smooth, warm finish. Not bad for a 40%.

    Has this on trip to Scotland from the states. I’m a bourbon guy, but the Dalmore 12 year Scotch whisky is excellent!

    Carrot cake, gingerbread, christmas cake and orange peel. Definitely either a desert or winter warmer scotch.

    Was given this whiskey as a gift from my son following his wedding. Beautifully smooth with an incredible after burn. A few moments later the taste of sherry and vanilla. A great whiskey.

    For years I've a Macallans drinker. I first started my single malt journey with Dahlwinnie which got me to forever give up blended scotch whiskey. Then I was introduced to Macallans and I thought there's no further to go; 12 year, 18 year, cask strength and even 25 year at a Times Square pub in NYC no less! Periodically I'd go back to Dahlwinnie or have Highland Park but I thought Macallans was it. The Dalmore (12 year) is smoother and needs no water or ice (thank the gods!) than all the Macallans except perhaps the 25 year. I LOVE this single malt: the nose, the start, the middle and the finish don't disappoint. And yes I've had Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Glenlivet, Glenfiddich Oban, and others and this easily stands with the best of those, despite, or perhaps because of, it's lack of high peat or smoke.
