Dalmore Regalis

The nose has vanilla, spices and cherrywood (or at least what I imagine cherry wood would smell like which is basically cherries and wood).  The taste is nutty, with tobacco, raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate.  The finish is woody, spicy with some cigar smoke.  With water it gets sweeter with ripe banana, more caramel and more tobacco in finish.  Overall a very nice, 40% ABV, sherry finished travel retail expression from Dalmore.

    My First (and worst) Whisky Joke

    Written by
    As it is the holiday season in the USA I thought I would post my first whisky joke.  I will see how many I can come up (or steal) as I develop this site.

    Knock, Knock.   Who's there?  Knocked.  Knocked who?  That's right, Knockdhu distillery, the makers of AnCnoc.

    W L Weller 12 year old

    I really like W L Weller Special Reserve and so I was excited to see this Weller expression in Ian Buxton's 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die.  The nose on this has lots going on, sweetness, vanilla and bubblegum.  The taste the also sweet, lots of corn, fruits, cocoa and some toasted oak notes.  The finish is drying with a bite of oak, cola, mint and some spice,  Another very solid, very drinkable example of "bourbon you never heard of".
