  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose: fresh, a little cherry sweets, a lot of sugar candy, turkish delight, some kiwi, some kaki, some marjoram, a little wood. Overall, more restrained. Palate: ertaunlich mild, again candy and marjoram. Little wood. Finish: Long, slightly dry, Kaki. Conclusion: Quite okay, but by far not enough to "earth shattering".

  2. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Oh, I'm really surprised. This young Dailuaine has a gorgeous nose. The finish in a rum barrel provides pleasant tropical fruit aromas, which harmonize very well with the vanilla sweetness and warming spiciness. Surprisingly spicy on the palate, with the 46% abv feeling much stronger to me. Towards the warming end the delicate tropical fruit components return. Very spicy and dry with water. This young Dailuaine is definitely worth more than a try. An enjoyable example of this little seen Speyside distillery.I thank myDrams for the sample and the photograph! https://www.whisky-connaisseur.de/tasting-notes-english/dailuaine/
    • Nose
      Fruity start on the nose with apricots and white peaches, followed by vanilla and a touch of honey. With time tropical notes of ripe banana develop, nicely mingling with tender zesty lime, toffee and gentle oak in the back. A very pleasant nose indeed.
    • Taste
      Sweet on the palate with caramel and vanilla but very spicy at the same time, too. Warming with black pepper, oak spice and subtle cloves. Once the warmth fades, the fruitiness arrives with apricots, peaches and bananas, followed by a touch of minerality towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, clean and creamy. Subtle sweet with caramel and fruit jam. Gets a bit drier on the tail with fine oak and a whiff of mint.

      With water: Quite fresh on the nose when a few drops of water are added. While notes of vanilla and yellow fruit remain stable, more oak is coming through. Quite spicy on the palate with loads of oak, cracked black pepper, cloves and a touch of mint. Very dry, too. Maybe there's some fruit behind this wall of spices but my taste budds don't recognize it. The finish shows good length. Very warming and significantly dry with oak, cloves and a hint of lemon on the tail.
