The Dalmore Constellation 1971 Cask #2. Image courtesy Whyte & Mackay. This 40-year-old Dalmore was matured in an ex-Bourbon cask (Cask #2), and the nose has classic Bourbon notes of honey, vanilla, oak, brown sugar, and dark chocolate, along with touches of nutmeg, cumin, and marzipan. The taste starts off subtle, but builds up a nice spiciness with notes of clove, cinnamon, and black pepper that fade to reveal softer honey, vanilla, banana, and coconut touches. The finish is long and smooth, as slowly fading spices linger with a delicate sweetness of honey and vanilla mixed with a slightly bitter touch of dark chocolate. Excellent! (October, 2014)
