When Dalmore discontinued the original Cigar Malt there was an outcry from whisky fans (and cigar fans) from all around the world. The replacement, Gran Reserva, didn’t last too long either and eventually a new, revamped cigar malt was brought back. This is the original, the OG Dalmore Cigar Malt from before Dalmore started tinkering with things. Phew…after that long and complicated history you probably need a drink! Dalmore Cigar Malt has a nose of toffee, malt, port, leather, red fruits and of course, cigar box. The palate has a lovely tobacco profile with spices, nuts, leather and ginger. The finish is a little smoky with crushed almonds and tobacco leaf. Since this original has been discontinued there are a dwindling number of bottles out there, so you better grab this one quickly.
