Member Ratings and Notes
N: Roasted nuts, fruity bubblegum, custard.
P: Malt balls and custard.
F: Building finish with a unique tingling sensation!
A whole lot better than the current Dalmore 12.  What a shame. 
Nose of sherry and fruit.  It's really interesting, with carnival smells -- like cotton candy and caramel corn.  Palate -- yum.  Mild-to-medium bodied, yet mouthfilling and complex.  There's fruit, spice, and wine.  Sweet.  This continues straight through the lengthy, mild finish, with peppery/spice and dryness.  This blows away today's Dalmore 12.  [Last comment was in reference to Dalmore 12 pre-2009 (in the States) "new" version]
