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.

    This is an excellent whisky for the price. While I am not generally a fan of sherried whiskies I enjoyed this because the sherry does not give it a syrupy quality. Very well balanced with dominant notes of raisins and vanilla with a nice amount of spice to offset the sherry sweetness.

    I like the 15 better, but the 12 sure is good value for money. I just like Dalmore's general orangey aroma and spicy flavour profile!

    Just tried a bottle for the first time. Wow ! A truly delicious malt with a long lasting deep warming finish. ( Tim 22nd May I''m sorry you''re wrong Glenfidich does''nt come close to this and Mr serious 28 Jan I don''t know where you get smoke from, there is''nt any ) will definitely be getting some more !!

    Promises more than it delivers. Sweet and spicy at first yet wet ashtrays and stagnant water are prominent. Better off going for a glenfiddich 12.

    Rich and unbelievably delicious. A little thin on the mouth feel, but other than that, this is downright amazing. Notes of milk chocolate, orange and marzipan. "Seductive" comes to mind with this one. Essential.

    The aromas were so intense upon opening the bottle. The room smelled like I just brewed a cup of coffee. There was also dark chocolate, raisins and roasted nuts. The aromas carried on to the palate and I tasted coffee, dark chocolate and nuts. The mouthfeel was buttery/oily and this scotch is slightly sweet. However, the aroma and flavor started going downhill after the bottle was opened for a month and only about 2/3 level. This precipitous drop in aroma and taste was very disappointing. The seal was tight and the bottle was stored in a cool room. I loved the beginning but the end was way too soon. Next time I''ll just have to drink it down a little faster!

    Very well balanced, long lasting sweetnes and rich flavours and i also senced a hint of smoke. The finish is long and mellow. I enjoyed it very much.

    The nose is sweet and the taste is good, but I''m not fond of the aftertaste. Just a little bitter.

    Probably as smooth a scotch as I have ever tasted

  • 29 March 2014

    Had this after tasting many of Scotchs but was impressed. Prefer Dalmore 15y much more, which is more complex and tasty. Get 15y instead.

    This is a lovely whiskey! smooth, easy drinking and not overwhelming. great for any one new to whiskey. Its does not have a long lasting taste, I feel it would be a lot better if it were bit stronger abv %. That aside you cannot go wrong with this Whiskey.

    Bought this for my father in law for xmas gorgeousness

    Do not like anything except my gin however I had this as my introductory to scotch and I am addicted. I don't like many whiskeys and was very skeptical however its damn good.

    Absolutely lovely dram. A touch of liquorice on the palate, a slight sting as it goes down with the sherry lingering. Deffo recommend this one.

  • 22 November 2012

    I'm a novice, but i really enjoyed this one. The perfect end to a perfect day!

    Am I going mad or has anybody else tasted a sort of clean, fresh hint of poached salmon in this?! Yes, I did say "poached salmon".

  • 2 July 2012

    A pretty decent malt when you get a good bottle, had this quite a few time before and the quality can slip, some bottles have tasted nothing like each other, there is definetly a issue with consistency at Dalmore, but when you get a good bottle it's a very nice dram, would like to see it at 46% with no colouring aswell.

    The only single malt I've tried that MIGHT be a better value than a very good blend.
