Dalmore Regalis

The nose has vanilla, spices and cherrywood (or at least what I imagine cherry wood would smell like which is basically cherries and wood).  The taste is nutty, with tobacco, raspberry, caramel and milk chocolate.  The finish is woody, spicy with some cigar smoke.  With water it gets sweeter with ripe banana, more caramel and more tobacco in finish.  Overall a very nice, 40% ABV, sherry finished travel retail expression from Dalmore.

    Recipe: Not observed but bar tender told me used Canadian Club

    Garnish: Maraschino cherry

    Comments: Nice and cold on the larger side.  Use of Canadian Club meant it was less sweet than one made with bourbon.  Good one.

    Lagavulin 1995 Distillers Edition

    This expression is finished in sweet Pedro Ximenez casks.  The nose has a lot of peat, in fact I couldn't find much else except a hint of fruitiness.  The taste is sweet, very sweet, but smooth.  It has caramel and spices and a little mint.  The sherry dries out the finish, pepper remains and some peat of course.  Right at the end the juicy fruit note from the nose reappeared.  Overall I haven't found my Lagavulin "go to" dram, this isn't it.  I will keep looking though.
