A triple matured expression of Dalmore originally launched for the Travel Retail market. This was aged in a combination of first fill ex-bourbon casks from Boston and Clermont, oloroso butts from Gonzalez Byass and port pipes.
NOSE: sweet Port influence. Caramel and toffee, blood oranges, plums and honey. A slightly dusty note as well. Buttery roundness. A little cardamom.
TASTE: very sweet, creamy and malty. Caramel. Remains quite neutral and vague before it goes towards a bitter earthiness, woody notes and the kind of roughness that you get in young grain whisky. All the elements don’t seem to work together.
FINISH: okayish length, but mostly on bitter oranges and drying wood.
