    Bought for my 50th, now 53 and just taken first glass, what an idiot I am. Why the wait? How many people do I know with bottles they never open because of cost. Delightful, smooth, beautiful toffee, chocolate, vanilla nose. Wish it left more of an aftertaste on the tongue, but this is mega critical. One of the best whiskeys I have ever experienced and I am not shrinking violet on the wee dram front. Recommend and enjoy

    Malty cereal and barley presence. Sour young oranges, burnt citrus peel. Medium body with oak flavor. No spice. Slight dryness, slight cocoa. Good dram for Dalmore. I like the 18yr still.

    I''m dalmore king Alexander fan, I have 23 bottle of king Alexander, and i have open 5 bottle . This is the best whiskey I have tried and the special whiskey, worth to buy and keep. Taste, you try it, then you will find it is so special. I gotna tell A secret of this bottle is, once the moment you open the bottle, abt 2-3 feet far you still able to smell the aroma, so please take note when u going to open this Gem. If in Aircon room then it will be more obvious. You hardly can found this when u open others''..

    Incredible whiskey. And I've tasted my fair share (macallan,talisker etc) Fruity, winter berries, spice. With elements of liqueur. Very complex. Very smooth. Highly recommended.

    As I loved this dram and agree that it is indeed a remarkable feat of blending, 40% ABV bottling is heart-breaking since it has obviously brought down the much greater potential of this otherwise great dram. It should have been bottled at a relatively higher strength as in the example of Dalmore's Clan Mackenzie series. I'd rather spend my £120.00 on a dram that is unadulterated. Still 90/100, which I presume could have been as high as 93 points otherwise.

    Great news! I'm just about to buy one for a friend's special birthday. I'm sure he'll share some with me :) I love giving presents like that!

  • Nick 2 April 2012

    Absolutely superb with a smoky but not overpowering flavour. It's also incredibly smooth and has no bite which makes in very pleasant to drink. Lovely.

    I recently purchased my second bottle from TWE, bought on the reviews here and have yet to open either. I hoping they are worth the wait. They certainly look the business

    Excellent Whiskey, Simply the Best I've drunk so far !!...worth the Money !

  • Pav 8 July 2011

    Very sherried and little peat. If you like them smooth and easy to drink this is very good. Not a patch on Glenlivet XXV though!

  • Steve Rainbow 13 April 2011

    I just bought one of these because i'm very much a Dalmore fan. Reading these reviews makes me even more excited.I also second the above comment - Richard Paterson is indeed a genius.

  • Jonhedin H. Trondheim 31 March 2011

    Absolutely one of the best whiskey I have ever tasted. My daughter bought a bottle for me at the Edinburg Airport (God bless her) She knows I love whiskey, but this one just hit the bullet.Thank God she's studying at the Stirling Uni and is a frequent traveler.
