Dalmore The Distillery Exclusive 2015 Review

Dalmore The Distillery Exclusive  This Distillery Exclusive from The Dalmore is a dram I was really excited about, it's not often we get higher strength The Dalmore so with no chill filtering, and hopefully no colouring, this is a really exciting dram, Limited edition with only 450 numbered bottles available, this is quite an exclusive dram.

Sweet and salty, this comes across like a good sherry influence but actually a collection of port, Moscatel and Madeira casks were used to mature this whisky in, before finally being finessed in first fill bourbon barrels.

The madiera really has come through stronger the extra abv gives this a really awesome mouthfeel that you don't get from the standard bottlings, this really is worth picking up if you are at the distillery and have the £150 spare.

Thanks to The Dalmore for the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Sweet and salty there's some real lovely sweet fruit cake sherry notes but with that salty nutty note that comes with some sherries, hints of bitter dark chocolate mousse with a hint of good quality rare cooked steak.

Palate

Much more of that sweet and saltyness from the nose, the sweetness is yet again Fruit cake with the Demerara sugar and treacle, and then the salty nuttiness that I get from oloroso sherry.

Finish

Sweet sugary fruit and salty peanuts
