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.

    Kilchoman Machir Bay (2012 Release)

    This whisky is named after a great beach on Islay near the distillery that I have been lucky enough to visit.  How best to describe the nose on this one?  I know... peat.  There are some beach notes as well and something else sweet flashes by as well... possibly caramel.  The taste has more of the sweetness from the nose, but the peat quickly kicks in.  Behind the peat there is some vanilla and even oranges hiding.  With a little water the peats settles down and the caramel finally emerges.  The finish has peat of course, some fruit and a little pepper on the lips.  Peat leads throughout but always something hiding behind... like a game of peek-a-boo.  Peat-a-boo perhaps?
