  • Excerpt: It does not take long for the heavy sweetness to become a bit much, not dissimilar from eating too many pancakes in one sitting.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is the base, age stated release in Dalmore's core line.

  • Nose:

    Mildly lactic, sweet raisin bread, sweet caramel and faint cocoa. There's some odd fruitiness, melons and faint banana.

  • Taste:

    Thin and again, mildly lactic. faint brown sugar, tastes young, almost as if there is some new make spirit in the mix. Raisin bread notes are here again.

  • Finish:

    Short and mildly funky. Lactic, sweet fruitiness, that young note dominates again.

  • Overall:

    This is nothing like I expected and nothing like I really remember Dalmore spirit to be like. Interesting. I am really looking forward to trying more expressions again to formally review. That said, I just didn't love this one.
