Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose: toffee, toffee, toffee, carob, fresh coffee beans, raisins, ovaltine granules, condensed milk Palate: toffee with espresso coffee, more carob/chocolate, dry sherry in the back palate. Finish: leather and drying sherry which hangs around. Comment: interesting and complex but lacks some integration between the sherry and the toffee; the coffee and carob notes are fun to explore.
Oliver KlimekColour: Copper - Nose: Prunes, orange zest, cocoa, christmas cake, hints of sandalwood. - Palate: Orange marmalade, bittersweet chocolate, tea, hints of ginger and nutmeg. - Finish: Long, fruity and dry with a herbal touch. Overall: This is a rich sherried dram as could be expected of Dalmore, but for my taste it's a bit too much on the dry side to be fully enjoyable.
