Dalmore 24yr Ex Rum (Wm Cadenheads)
This is another of those drams that arrived as a sample from a friend who i regularly swap samples with, and an interesting one it is too.
Dalmore matured for 16 years in Bourbon then 8 in ex Rum casks, an intriguing thought.
Huge rum notes in here, but did you expect anything less? and lots of blackcurrant and hugely powerful notes, this dram is not for the feignt of heart, a real bruiser, but a brilliant one at that.

Massively influenced by the rum, a Cuba libre with a triple shot of rum, rum baba, floral gums and vanilla essence, caramelised Demerara sugar, sticky toffee pudding with a thick treacle sauce, syrup sponge cake.
A smack in the face with a blackcurrant baseball bat, aromatic leaf bitters, thick treacle and tarte berries, powerful and spicy, waxy vanilla pods, the palate is quite a changing chameleon of exploding flavours
Sweet, strong, floral, Cuba libre, spices.
