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.

    Question...

    Blog Reader:  Are you going to post any new interesting blog entries, or for that matter, any kind of blog entries, ever again?

    Blog Writer: Yes.  When I have something to say that isn't tired and hacky.   I will in the meantime continue to post tasting notes and visit distilleries.

    Blog Reader:  Thank you.

    Blog Writer: No, thank you.

    Glenmorangie The Lasanta

    I like Glenmorangie (I really liked their madeira cask finished version but can't find that anywhere) and I am not alone as it is best selling single malt in Scotland. The La Santa is sherry cask finished expression and the nose has the sherry fruit notes, some malt and and some alcohol (this is bottled at 46% ABV).  The taste is smooth and well balanced, mouth coating and honey sweet, vanilla, milk chocolate with a very long, dry, oaky finish with tannins evident (black tea?).
