With its intricate aromas and flavours, The Dalmore 12 is recognised as a whisky with character far beyond its age. Aromas of citrus fruits, chocolate and aromatic spices. Taste of Seville oranges, dried fruits and hints of vanilla pod. Finishing notes of roasted coffee and dark chocolate.
Opening whiffs detect scents of toasted cereal grains and biscuit batter; air contact stimulates deeper aromas of peanut butter, buttered popcorn, wheat toast and lanolin. Palate entry is sweet, maple-like and sappy; the midpalate features oily flavors of roasted nuts, sautéed butter and nougat. Ends on a nutty, near honeyed note, with a trace of cigarette tobacco. P.P.
