Dalmore – 1263 King Alexander III – Tasting Notes

Nose
Orange, vanilla, chocolate, cereal, cherry, cacao butter, pineapple, toffee, apricots, warm spices

Palate
Cassis, honey, cherry, syrup, caramel, sultana’s, apricots, a bit of citrus, vanilla

Finish
Short, sweet, and almonds in the end. But less bitter then the rest we have tasted. And a bit of pepper in the end

Score
6,5 out of 10.
This has been matured in wine, Madeira, Sherry, Marsala, Kentucky bourbon and Port casks.This gives it tones of the different quality’s of them, but sadly overall again the sweet caramel. It is a nice one, that one is for sure, but not for the 147 pounds. Warm and sweet.

Tasting scores explained a bit. It all depends on the moment, ambiance etc, but to have a guideline for my own preferences. This differs for each person. See my wish list in the menu above to see what I prefer the most at the moment. A low score will not meen I will maybe give it a second chance on a later time, but for now it is not for me…

1-5   Mhmm... Not liking this one…
5-6   Don’t have to wake me up for this, not bad, but not my preference
6-7   I like, but they just miss something, to make me wanna buy a whole bottle
7-8   Well, you can start waking me up for these, more depth, these I would love to add to my collection
8-9   These are to be enjoyed slowly. These I absolutely would love to have a bottle, but sadly not always in my price range. 
9-10 Well, what can I say, just wow…… No words to describe it. Wake me up now!!
