Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Aged in a series of barrels-first American oak, then transferred to a former oloroso Sherry cask and finished in used Cabernet Sauvignon barriques-this Scotch would be an outstanding dessert accompaniment too. Look for dusty cocoa and lots of Sherried dark fruit, like figs and dates, wrapped in caramel and baking tones that linger on the spicy finish.
Dalmore Cigar Malt was discontinued in mid-2009, causing uproar among all right-thinking, cigar-smoking whisky fans. The age-profiles of the whisky that went into the blend, but the new version is a little different. The whiskies that make up the reworked cigar malt are slightly older.But it's a great whisky, whether you drink with its intended purpose in mind or not. And if you do enjoy cigars this will match quite fine.
