About me? I am a Whisky Educator, Travel-Tourist and Blogger. I blog tasting notes about (mostly Scotch) beer and whisky at The Whiskyphiles. I keep progress of my travels via the Alfred Barnard Society. Based in Livingston, Scotland I do most of my dramming at the University of Edinburgh Water of Life Society and Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

The Dalmore 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Select (43%, OB, 2020)

The Dalmore Sherry Cask Select 12 YO

Dalmore 12 Years Old Sherry Cask Select Whisky Review: A classic Dalmore, from memory this does have some deeper nut/fruit/chocolate flavours in here than the standard Dalmore 12 Years Old – though it has been some time since I last tried the standard expression. I’d be interested to see at what price this retails at, though Dalmore fans will likely buy it regardless. 84/100

Jura Winter Edition (40%, OB, 2020)

Jura Winter Edition Whisky Review: A classic Jura expression, not sherried to death but the spirit is really brought to life by the addition of sherry-derived flavours complementing core Jura distillate. For me this is much more of an autmnal dram than a winter warmer due to the association with ‘bonfire night’ flavours. 87/100
