Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve is captivating from first sight, showing a rich, deep amber color with a glint of copper. The hue itself narrates a tale of its intricate cask journey.
The olfactory profile is equally compelling, radiating a complex bouquet of aromas. The initial wave brings forward scents of orange zest and spice, backed by nuances of cocoa and sandalwood. The sherry and wine barrel influence manifest themselves in the form of dark fruits like plum and raisin, embellished by a dash of nutmeg and leather.
On the palate, this single malt Scotch unfolds its complexity layer by layer. The initial impact offers the sweet richness of caramel and dark chocolate, a tribute to its time in oloroso sherry casks. As the experience continues, a crescendo of flavors reveals itself, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and stewed fruits, all set on a backdrop of refined oakiness. The Cabernet Sauvignon barrels lend a unique, tannic undertone that plays harmoniously with the tobacco notes that a fine cigar would contribute.
The finish is luxuriously long and remarkably balanced. Lingering notes of espresso and dark berries give way to a final smoky flourish, making it an exemplary pairing with cigars.
Robust yet refined, the 44% ABV provides a balanced alcoholic heat without distracting from the tapestry of flavors. The whisky embodies a velvety mouthfeel that enhances its intricate nuances.

In essence, the Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve Single Malt Scotch is not just a drink; it is an experience meant to be savored. This exceptional whisky is now available for the true connoisseur at Third Base Market & Spirits.
A truly wonderful whiskey. It is, to me, more Bourbonesque, than truly Scotch. What I mean by that, is that it has the spice and sweetness of a bourbon, with the fruits and smoke of a good Scotch. It is a truly well rounded whiskey that will make a believer out of anyone. Do yourself a favor and try Cigar Malt. It may be pricey, but worth every bit!
