Dalmore Tweed Dram

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Dalmore

Dalmore Tweed Dram is part of the Rivers Collection, which consists of four expressions that honour famous salmon fishing rivers in Scotland.

The Tweed is the most prolific salmon river in the UK A generous donation is gifted to The Tweed Foundation from the sale of every bottle sold, to support and further the excellent work it does.

(40%, OB 2012, Rivers Collection, Season 2012)

Nose: starts completely on butter caramel. Then moves to cooked oranges and orange marmalade with chocolate. Some hay. Almonds. Baked apples. Also hints of rubber in the distance. Mouth: rather sweet and mellow. Apples and raisins. Some honey. Toffee. Then it grows slightly drier, with herbal notes and a faint bitterness. Lacks a bit of punch. Finish: rather short, as if most of the flavour disappeared and only the (harsher) grainy notes remain.

A bit of a mixed bag. Disappointing nose, a nice smoothness on the palate and a rough finale. Rather cheap but it doesn’t work for me. Around € 45.

Score: 75/100
