Another dram of Maverick’s Whisky Advent Calendar, this time a Dalmore 15 years old. A distillery famous because of their world-renowned Consternation Collections: yet another expensive collection of whiskies.
I have to say that I like the style of the Dalmore distillery but I really dislike their approach to whisky drinkers: making good stuff expensive and watering down the average stuff… #ripoff
Anyway, let’s review it
“Excellent nose and a quite solid sherried whisky but I think it has more water than it should”
But not just any sherry casks, but those that have been used to create some of the worlds most premium fortified wines - Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem sherries from Gonzalez - Byass, Spain.
Lovely Dalmore Single Malt whisky. If you like it, you should give a try to some of the Macallan whiskies like this 10 years old Sherry Oak.
This dram has a tawny-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. honey, citrus, tobacco, vanilla, spices, cinnamon, wood, flowers, nuts.
Palate (89): powerful, oily. honey, citrus, nuts, spices, vanilla, wood, cinnamon, cocoa.
Finish (89): longer than average. honey, cocoa, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Dalmore 15 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky with 89 points over 100.

It is a quite good whisky but I have the feeling that this was truly fantastic and it was watered down to make the expensive stuff looks better…
