Adelphi Dalmore 11 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.20%
7 A big, rich bottling, but some of the Dalmore character has been overpowered.

Cadenhead's Dalmore 13 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
8 Extraordinarily sweet-but an engaging curiosity. This pale, golden Dalmore, without the sherry, has an especially characteristic touch of amontillado.

Cadenhead's Dalmore 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.50%
7 Quite a light character for a Highland malt. Water helps but still a bit rough. Even on a frosty morning!

Highland (Dalmore)

7 Not firing fully yet

The Dalmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Said to be married in sherry butts. In this instance, marriage certainly works.

The Dalmore 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Sweet and simple. Maybe higher alcohol would help?

The Dalmore 12 Years Old, Black Pearl
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Good balance. A fruity profile. To be enjoyed with a lemon-meringue pie or a syllabub.

The Dalmore 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 I'm normally a fan of Dalmore, this doesn't do it for me.

The Dalmore 1973, Cabernet Sauvignon Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.00%

The Dalmore 1991, Madeira Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
8 The wine smoothes but it is not there yet. Too young? Not enough finishing? It should have gone back to sleep.

The Dalmore 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Seductive, but it is all done with great finesse.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Dalmore 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 An assertive character, with a pleasant crisp feel on the palate. The dram to take on long forest walk. Invigorating.

The Dalmore 30 Years Old, Gonzalez Bypass
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.00%
8 A beautiful and complex nose, palate starts right then the elegant spiciness.

The Dalmore 50 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.00%
8 Like drinking an ancient forest and not to everyone's taste (or pocket) but it has character and power.

The Dalmore Berrys' Own Selection 1997
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 The grassy profile of this whisky is too much.

8 All darkened nightclubs and secret assignations in Mulholland Drive.

The Dalmore Castle Leod
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 For those who like bitter drinks, obviously. Too much untamed wood maybe?

The Dalmore Cigar Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Beautifully constructed, very distinctive.

The Dalmore Cigar Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Oak calls the tune but does not drown out the choir. A classic afterdinner dram.

The Dalmore Cigar Malt
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.50%
7 It's fine, but only suitable for a lighter stogie. Not a patch on the old version I'm afraid.

The Dalmore Dee Dram
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A pleasant dram with a satisfying balance to it.

The Dalmore Gran Reserva
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 This is the best of the bunch,but in general I find the construction of these just a little too obvious.

The Dalmore King Alexander
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
6 Lacks balance for me. Overloaded in the oak department and also too sweet.

The Dalmore Single Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.50%
7 Decent enough but a little underwhelming.

The Dalmore Sirius
Single Malt - Scotland - 45.00%
7 A very old whisky which has retained vigour but lost its balance. Oak is prevailing. To savour more like a piece of liquid history.

The Dalmore Spey Dram
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A solid character on the oaky side but not overwhelmed by wood.

The Dalmore Tay Dram
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
8 A well-knitted dram. Good structure and balance. Water enhances oak.

The Dalmore The Manager's Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Maybe a faulty sample for this has no energy at all.

The Dalmore Tweed Dram
Blended - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A decent dram but without an oomph character.

The Dalmore Valour
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 There is this odd strawberry aroma note on the nose. The palate is better structured but it could have benefited a higher strength I feel.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Mocha Spice 21 Years Old, 1990
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Good palate whisky, but keep the water on the side.
