The Dalmore Stillman's Dram 28 Year Old, 45%

Price: $140 Issue: Fall 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

For the past several years, the Stillman's Dram expression of The Dalmore has been a 30 year old. This new 28 year old expression, besides being two years younger, is also slightly less sherried. In this instance, I feel that both have enhanced the whisky. Trimming back on the sherry and oak allows the whisky's trademark orange marmalade, complex spice, and briny freshness to shine through. This one is lively, dynamic, evolving, well-balanced, and always entertaining. The best Dalmore Stillman's Dram in years.
