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.

    Every now and again a whisky comes along that is a nice surprise.  This was one of those whiskies for me.  The nose was very light and sweet, with fresh fruits, green grapes maybe.  The taste is also sweet, honeyed and malty and more fruit, a softer cirtus note like tangerine rather than lemon.  The finish has some heat and smoke and is quite dry.  Elegant and interesting, a nice all rounder, on the light side perhaps but robust enough to stand up to pairing with some food as well.  Reminds me a lot of Old Pulteney, interestingly both distilleries are in old ports but on opposites side of Scotland, and if you like one, my guess is you will like the other.
