Dalmore 15yr

The-15 (2)

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.


Golden brown.


Sweet, chocolate and toffee with orange and sherry thrown in.


Dark chocolate, toffee and an orange zest. Hints of spice – Cinnamon? Ginger?


Long lasting and creamy, dark chocolate with a smokey quality.


A former favourite of my collection. Goes down a treat – in fact I’d go as far as to say it goes down a little too easily. I have to watch myself when I’m drinking this otherwise it will all be gone in no time!


Classic Rock Match:

Following a post by @the_whisky_lady entitled ON THE ROCKS: Match Your Whisky With Rock Classics I’m going to try and match my tastings with a classic rock song.

This is an easy starter with The Stranglers – Golden Brown.



Taken from Dalmore website:


THE 15


The Dalmore 15 year old is smooth, rich and well rounded; the epitome of The Dalmore house style.

This delicate and approachable vintage is initially matured for 12 years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The character of The Dalmore 15 is achieved by then splitting the whisky equally between three different sherry woods; Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem oloroso for a further three years. The spirit is finally married together in an upstanding sherry butt, allowing the flavours to infuse.

  1. Gotta love some Dalmore. While the 12 Year Old lacks a little the 15 sounds like it makes up for it! My personal favourite is the ‘Cigar Malt Reserve’ – a lovely dry and sherried expression. And I’d say Golden brown is appropriate!
    Keep on waffling,

    1. I have tried the 12yr although it was before I started whisky tasting properly so I have no notes for it. Not tried the cigar malt yet but it’s on my list!


      1. Oh get round to it! There’s a lot to like, especially if, like yourself, you don’t mind a bit of dalmore!
