BT2012 81/100
The colour is deep gold and the nose is rather complex with floral (honeysuckle), fruity (candied fruits) and slightly peaty hints.
The palate is smooth. Cereals with spicy notes (pepper, nutmeg) fruits (apple) and chocolate.
The finish is both smooth and firm, and is dominated by cereal and flowers.

Personal Comment
The nose detects refined cut grass hints The taste is a bit poor. It is not complex enough, and to much marked by cereals. An interesting whisky, however a little disappointing in regard to other malts from the same area. No trace of the taste explosion which characterizes much malts from Speyside. The finish is too short, and memorizes the alcohol rather than the aromas. But it is a very interesting bottling.
74/100
A second tasting confirmed the first one. A great contrast between the perfumed nose and the flatter taste. All remarks from the first tasting are still in force.
74/100
A floral nose dominated by the malted cereal, followed by a taste in the palate where malt domination remains, with some spicy hints (pepper). The same impressions are present in the finish too. This whisky is nice, but no more.

Dallas Dhu 1982 Signatory
Personal Comment
A rather fresh nose, with some discrete hints of malt and some light touches of ... soap (?). In the mouth, pleasant floral notes, heather, mixed to malty notes with some slight touches of citrus fruit. A pleasant finish, mixing malt and floral hints.
74/100
At the second tasting, several months later, the nose was quite fresh, with hints of cut grass, mint, violet and ripe fruit, like yellow apple. A nice fruity nose. In the palate, the impression is somewhat different, and presents a lack of clearness, still sweet notes, but rather dry, and the soap impression from the first tasting reappears. The finish is rather short, with slightly bitter hints, miwed with some malty ones.

Dallas Dhu 1972 Old Malt Cask
Personal Comment

Colour: Old gold
A nose with a nice complexity. The presence of sherry is clear. The smell of plum jam is mixed with notes of ripe fruit.
The taste is pleasant and first impressions are fruity, complex, rich in surprises. In addition to plum jam that feels at once, as an extension of the nose, come quickly added the acid notes that give it a nice freshness. These acid notes disappear very quickly, and the fruit and sherry a comeback.
The finish is lengthy and warm, mostly marked by sherry and this impression characteristic of plum jam.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
