Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass. Copita - Colour: Rich amber - Nose: Orange with a hint of lime zest followed by blackcurrant and a suggestion of plums. With time in the glass this develops a light nuttiness (mainly hazelnuts) alongside vanilla. Crème Brulee anyone? - Palate: Slightly dry but creamy mouth-feel with lots of fruit and wine flavours. I'm thinking red fruits here, maybe redcurrant, raspberry, cranberry and faint cherry. - Finish: Long, rich and smooth. - Overall Impression: Fine, red, very deep and intense. A slightly different Dalmore profile in this one, but truly magnificent and a "Great" in my book.
