Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

13. Sep 2018
Oh well. With only 40% ABV, heavy chill-filtration and added colorant, the presentation of Dalmore 12 could hardly be any worse. A shiny plastic stag alone does not make a good Single Malt! The nose, which is still the best part of the experience, features marzipan, raisins and Christmas spices with hints of fudge and citrus. Dark fruits, baked apple and zesty oranges dominate the palate, interrupted by tingly spiritiness. Notes of bitter tea, nutty dryness and eucalyptus remain of the short to medium finish. This Highlander could be so much better, if only...
