What they say:

Independently bottled by the chaps at Douglas Laing, this Dalmore single malt spent 17 years maturing in a single cask before it was bottled as part of the Old Particular range. Plenty of ginger, baking spices and floral sweetness. Just 139 bottles were produced.

What I say:

Another refill hogshead 17 Year Old Dalmore, produced by Douglas Laing as part of their Old Particular range and bottled slightly earlier than the last example we tried (Dalmore 17 Years Old 1997 – Old Particular ~ 55.5%).

Colour:

Light straw gold (5/20), medium tears leave medium legs

Nose:

Quite light initially on the nose, grassy straw, cereal barley, some vanilla cheesecake, spiced gingerbread, and nutty hazelnut

Taste:

More baked goodies on the palate with a little citric lemon meringue pie, heavily spiced gingerbread with clove, nutmeg and cinnamon all present, baking bread

Finish:

Medium-long and quite sweet

Overall:

Again another delicious offering, quite spicy but well incorporated into slightly sweet home-baked desserts, delicious!

Score: 85/100
