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.

    Forty Creek Port Wood Reserve

    Perhaps my favorite whisky (so far) from my favorite Canadian distillery.  This special edition comes at 45% and won an award or two in 2013.  The nose is port led, fruity and sweet.  The taste has lots going on with tawny port, ripe banana, dried fruit, cocoa, vanilla and perhaps toasted oak.  The finish finally sees some cinnamon spice push past the sweet and complex palate.  For me, at some point, we cross a line from a port finished whisky to a port flavored whisky and if this one does not cross the line it certainly gets right up close to it.  I happen to love port influenced whiskies so it bother me not, but I could understand someone telling me it was too much with this one.
