Proof66 Notes

The Dalmore 18yr scotch is one of the most consistently decorated scotches in the world (according to our database) and represents the premium 18 year aging. It spends the first 14 years in American Oak ex-bourbon casks and then given an additional 4 year of aging in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks (themselves, at least 30 years old). They call it a "provocative and intense taste."

4.5/5, it's a classy balanced all wine influenced scotch. Where it separates itself from the pack is on the smoothness, balance, and richness of the wine. Far less wood influence than macallan's 18, smoother and higher quality wine than bush mills 16 (a good wine whiskey I might add), and like a richer version of the 12. Pitfalls are on the finish and one dimensionality. If you like wine influence it's a must try even at the price

Too smoky? Not a chance. True, there are wood tones but they are not overpowering at all. There is a lot going with regards to taste and its all good. If you have the money to buy, I highly recommend.

Too smokey. I prefer a smoother Irish whiskey such as Jameson.
