This incarnation of The Dalmore is firmly rooted in the luxury whisky category based on the process used to create it and the subsequent price it commands. As the most expensive entry in the Principal Collection, I found the dram to be somewhat of a disappointment. There is a busy quality to the drinking of this which I found to be cumbersome. The layering was suitably complex but lacking in nuance to tie it all together in a cohesive narrative.
As a result, it felt like the ground was simply shifting beneath my feet, when I would have preferred to have been taken on a journey.
