Second round at L’ile Noire, and we went for one of the big guys. The Dalmore wins all kinds of awards all the time.
Caveat: we had The Dalmore 5th in a night of scotch tastings, so it’s possible our tongues were just worn out and tired. I will keep The Dalmore 15y on the list of scotches to taste again based on that.
Caveats aside, colour me unimpressed.
Me: wood nose, leather, not much but burn after first taste
Katherine: butterscotch smell, pine, spice, leather, smoke, flat
Based on that tasting, neither of us would bother with this particular Dalmore again.
Try it? If you’ve never had a Dalmore, sure. Buy it? Probably not.
