    I'm not knocking Dalmore 12 ,it dose taste a little young but it is good.
    The 12 gives me some inclination of what this could be if left to mature awhile longer,at 15 to 18 years old it would be very good,and at 50 % non chill filtered it would be something spectacular.
    I like your ginger jar toppers on your copita glasses Grant. I may one day try there older offerings.

    One of my favorites.
    I like heavily sherried whiskeys and that little bomb is delightful.

    I'm a big fan of sherried whisky but have to say that Dalmore 12 is my least favourite so far. I was really looking forward to it but found it sickly sweet with a really synthetic orange flavour - I actually struggled to finish it!

    Glengoyne 18 yr old....

    A lovely creamy dram this. I first tried it at a distillery tasting years ago and was impressed, along with the 21 and 25 which is nectar.
    Anyway this has to me, honey, cream a little smooth spices, maybe caramel, vanilla etc and a little lemon too.
    incredibly smooth and finish is longish but milder than most. for this money i'd say the tomatin 18 is better.

    The bottle I have tastes more like orange peel and is not very sweet , it is well balanced with bitter dark chocolate ,cinnamon and just a hint of clove.
    It is far from a sherry bomb.
