8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.63 points

  1. Abadon05 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Kiwi, cherry, strawberry, some gooseberry, dark forest honey, with a light alcoholic stinging
    • Taste
      Kiwi and strawberry remain, with pineapple and spicy honey, which now goes in the direction of chestnut honey.
      It gets lighter with water. More strawberry, more honey, less gooseberry
    • Finish
      Spicy with a medium long finish. The kiwi continues to dominate.

  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    unusual maturation / finish combination, quite successful and interesting - needs 3-4 drops of water to expose the flavors
    • Nose
      Coffee and red wine, sweet tobacco, fully ripe gooseberries, sherry, tough maple syrup
    • Taste
      Immediately the overripe gooseberries, which claim the entire oral cavity, hazelnuts mix and blackcurrants, behind pushes dry oak
    • Finish
      fruity, sweet and dry - quite long for his age

    From an ex-oloroso butt to a 1st-fill red wine barrique. Yikes! Out of the pan,…

    N: Bubblegum oloroso, dampish pepper, scented stationary rubbers, sweet redcurrant jelly, a little strawberry and gooseberry-tutti-fruity. Water brings out more subterranean notes of soft mineral, simple dry soil,…. [no further notes].
    T: It’s a big dram. The oloroso speaks first before things get interesting. Oloroso shifts to a more [strange] PX/Amontillado sherry style with rubbery arm bands and weird-sweet dry-cream putty,
    F: More funny business on oloroso bubblegum with cinnamon to the fore.
    C Tastes far less wrong than it looks on paper. Somehow it works though clearly this style isn’t going to please everyone. Not recommended as your first Dailuaine or it might taint your perception of that wonderful distillery’s character forever.Scores a C+

    Spicy & sweet

    Kiwi marmalade on a hot cross bun

    A candied introduction moved through honeycomb and banana bread before displaying perfumed overtones of pot pouri and sweet tobacco. Spicy hot cross buns combined with cinnamon and ginger, perhaps in thick cut marmalade and sticky acacia honey. The palate carried an intense punch of fruit as blackcurrant joined fine Barolo wine with the tartness of hot gooseberry crumble. Macadamia nuts dipped in dark chocolate floated atop fruit puree as kiwi, guava and ripe banana amalgamated with dry wood on the finish. After spending 12 years in an ex-oloroso butt this was transferred to a 1st fill charred red wine barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
