Dalmore 25 year old

Now we are talking! This was the ‘star turn’ at recent Reserve 101 (#houstonsbestbar) Dalmore tasting event and with good reason. With only 190 bottles available in the USA , The Dalmore 25 year old has been described by Richard Patterson as the best whisky he has ever made, which makes you feel a bit sorry for the idiots, sorry high end whisky consumers, who spent all their money on his Constellation series whiskies.   This one could make a case to go on my “top shelf of top shelf” drams alongside Highland Park 40, The Glenlivet 70 (yes 70!) and Glenmorangie 1963. The nose is sweet and fruity and the taste smooth, creamy with coffee, raisins and citrus. The finish dry and delicious. I am first to admit that these notes are brief but I frequently notice when I am immersed in a truly great whisky as this is, when I look down at my notebook I find I forgot to take notes.  This was one of those cases. Sorry.
