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.

    Maybe It's Because I'm a Londoner....

    Written by

    It goes without saying I had a great time at WhiskyLive London last week.  Highlights for me included meeting fellow bloggers Dave Worthington and Kat Pressly (aka Whisky Discovery), trying Glenlivet new make with Ian Logan, a quick chat with Richard Patterson of Whyte and MacKay and a Kavalan Masterclass with distiller Ian Chang.  There were of course some very good whiskies (and a few rums) being poured as well and some of my favorites of the day are listed below.  I somehow managed to miss fellow Texan Chip Tate of Balcones, a man much in demand right now, but I am sure we will meet soon.  I also visited The London Distillery Company and had a chance to catch up with Darren Rook and taste some of their new Dodd's gin before the show... more on that in a later blog.  All in all, not a bad way to spend a snowy Saturday in March.

    Another rum, which is a growing sideline of this website.  The nose is very fruity and sweet.  The taste has molasses, brown sugar, cherries and vanilla.  Very nice and mouthfilling.  The finish gets a little oaky at the end but there is more vanilla and fruit as well.
