Once payment for the lot has been made by bank transfer only, the funds will be held by Just Whisky Limited, and only transferred to the seller once the buyer has received documentation and proof of ownership.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: a subtle hint of auburn but this is a naked Dalmore in its natural state

Nose: a promising thurst to the nose with vanilla pod scrapings, lime juice, refreshers and icing sugar. So there's a youthful vibrancy with mint leaf, a light toffee and mineral chalky aspect. Water brings out a creaminess and the cask charr.

Mouth: apple peelings, ripe pears and Custard Creams. Perhaps not a huge amount of development. We'll try water. This provides more of the same plus almonds,  a white tea, dried fruits and a subtle orange.

It's very drinkable at cask strength and has a refreshing lightness and youthful vibrancy.
