Tasting notes
Nose: This is very oaky and sweet. There’s honey, malt and a sort of in-between circle of toffee, caramel, cream and fudge. The fruitiness is also very much in focus, with oranges, grapefruit and lime. There’s also a somewhat odd seaweed note laying on top. It has a very noticable oakiness.

Mouth: It’s dusty and the vanilla is very up front and powerful. Beneath is the butterscotchy fudge note coming through with a fruity tang to it. There’s green apples, grapefruit, orange marmelade and lime. The oak is very bitter and astringent and somewhere in there are pure cacao and strong coffee notes.

Finish: The vanilla is still in charge and behind the grapefruit and orange marmelade lingers. The butterscotchy fudge note is quickly gone and leaves room for a very dry and astringent oak. It’s very bitter, almost like there’s a dash of tonic water in there. The cacao is still present and the coffee note swithes up a notch towards espresso.

Additional information
This Dalmore expression is matured in american ex-bourbon barrels. For most of its time it rests in refill barrels and then in first fills during a finishing period.
