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.

    GlenDronach Trump 26 year old Single Cask

    This bottling of GlenDronach is available only at the Trump International Golf Links near Aberdeen. The golf course is spectacular but also controversial as not all the locals were happy with the arrival of the iconic Trump and his golf course but unpopular property development is not a suitable subject for a whisky blog. Interestingly that controversy spilled over into the whisky as well when Mr Trump got a little hot under the toupee when one of the same locals who spoke against the development was given a “local hero” award… sponsored by Glenfiddich. Don’t expect to see their products behind the bar in clubhouse anytime soon. This single cask bottling at 53.3% ABV is, like the course, simply stunning. The nose is rich and warm with sherry oak. The taste is the complex and mouth filling sherry-fest you might expect from GlenDronach but sweetened and balanced with milk chocolate and caramel notes. The finish is drying and longer than the 651 yard, par 5 18th hole.   I would rank put the Trump Links in my Top Five Scottish golf courses, and this may also be in my top five single malts.  Sweeter than  a well struck drive.
