The nose on this is peat, tar, and dried fruits. On the palate, iodine, malt, lots of chocolate, dark rum taste. The finish is long and lingers with some brown sugar. This expression when you find it is a must try. Having trouble finding it? It was a limited run but I do believe it can still be ordered online as of 09/2013


Dalmore 14 Year Rum Cask (Chieftain’s)


Grade: C-

Type: Scotland, Single Malt, Highland

Age: 14 Yrs

Price: $57

The nose is hot with some small hints of sweetness. The palate has some sweet rum to it but very faint. The finish lingers with this hot putrid paint lacquer. I would only drink this if it was free.
