The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve

Country: Scotland
Region: Highlands
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 92 points

This is an all-new version of The Dalmore’s Cigar Malt, which was originally phased out in favor of the Gran Reserva expression. It has a slightly higher percentage of Oloroso Matusalem sherry casks than the original Cigar Malt, and the nose is full of honey, orange marmalade, and cinnamon spice. The taste carries over those same notes, with additional touches of almonds and allspice helping to give it a good mouthfeel. The finish is rich and smooth with toffee, honey, and citrus notes.
