Literally the first thing that popped in my head while nosing this dram was: this is lovely! You barely notice the high ABV at all, and there’s so much complexity. Fresh baked apple pie and cinnamon rolls, mulled wine with oranges and cloves, gingerbread and a steaming hot “hot toddy”. It’s all there to savour and explore.

Mocha, dark chocolate, and dried cranberries. Coffee, liquorice, and strawberry marmalade. Walnut, pecans, and port syrup. The palate is without a doubt as complex as the nose has promised us. The high ABV is noticeable here, but it’s still very much drinkable as is. The mouthfeel is almost creamy. This dram goes down like a charm!

This dram has a long finish with notes of tiramisu, and freshly ground coffee that linger. There are also some creamy notes that remain, vaguely reminiscent of a well-made panna cotta. Some tannins appear near the end, but only barely. This is one to savour for a long time after the last sip.

As enthusiastic as I was to try this independently bottled Dalmore, the Hart Brothers surely didn’t let me down. This is some absolutely amazing stuff and I’m suspecting my own bottle won’t last me very long. This bottling is also a great example of the amazing contribution independent bottlers bring to the whisky industry. No matter how much you think to know about a distillery, it’s the independents that will manage to surpass your expectations time and time again!
