Well, I had some last night, and I have a bottle in reserve. I think the only other SMS for which that is the case is Aberlour A'Bunadh. Evidence seems to point to me liking it :D .
To be a little more specific, it shows a bit of peat, a bit of fruitiness (I'm a bourbon fan, I want flavor), without being overbearing toward any particular taste element. It isn't necessarily subtle, but it IS inoffensive without being bland.

Hi there,

I was not impressed and it is one malt I did not like. The bottle must be standing in the closet for about 10 years now and slowly it gets better.
But don´t let that keep you.

I love Dalmore, the flavour of oranges and sherry together very pleasant.

I always get some dark chocolate along with the oranges. The 12 is a very good dram, much better than the unbalanced Cigar Malt.

I have finished recently a bottle of Dalmore 12 yo, a good dram in sherried-style and a high quality/price ratio.

I have sampled Dalmore a few times over the years and never failed to enjoy it, but it isn't waht I would call an everyday dram. It's one I like occasionally for a pleasant change - probably because of the orange/citrus element alongside the richer flavours.

I just finished a bottle of Dalmore 12 last night. I have always liked it's rich full bodied taste. While I like almost all scotches, the likes of Dalmore is just great for sitting around sipping with friends. It's smooth enough not to need any water near it.
It's not something that is readily available in my part of the world so it's more of a treat when I do get it. It's also a good scotch to give to those who are new to single malts. It's a little like a good cognac in that respect.

I had a mini a few years ago. I distinctly remember tasting oranges. Other than that, I had no urge to go out and buy a bottle...

It's ok. Unlike Malt-Teaser, I do consider this for everyday dramming. Not to demanding, while still offering plenty in the nose and palate. Overall, enjoyable, but not a superstunning dram.
