  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Bottleshare with the other two down my review.

    The nose is best. Taste is good, finish could be better.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very pleasing and interesting nose. I like this. It has a bit of layers which are complementing each other.
      There is a very sweet nose, with yellow apple, ripe plums and also some red fruit influences.
      There is also a bit of pencil shavings and sawdust in here.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Thin arrival. There is some sugar, sweet canned fruit, some vanilla and a touch of plum again. But this is not very stunning.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short-medium length. A tad bitter, but the sweetness overtakes it a bit. Again some canned fruit and sugar. A little dry.

  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bottleshare with friends after discovering some very interesting Dailuaine whiskies.
    • Nose
      This is a very pleasant nose! Initialy it appears to me that there is quite some sherry going on inhere. In a ‘refill’ kind of way. Raspberry and warm red fruits. Maybe they used a number of ex-sherry staves to build one or both casks.
      A rather warm, fatty one! Candy-like sweetness and after a while in the glass spiced wood. Not that much sherry influences anymore.
    • Taste
      Taste initially is quite flat and soft. It is a bit bity when swallowing. Not to complex. Fatty, Pepers and wood.
    • Finish
      It is quite sticky: medium-long. Spiced wood, hints of sugarbread and vanilla. Somehow there is a slightly peaty note going on. Finish develops nicely. The distinctive fatty character that Dailuaine often has is there and keeps me company for quite a while.

  3. Erik1908 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    This whisky is part of a bottle share with my WB friends. The "discovery" of the Dailuaine 13y bottled by Cadenhead was quite a surprise. This Dailuaine bottling is the next in line. Both bottles however cannot be compared. Nice, but not
    the hotshot whisky I had hoped for.
    • Nose
      85 85
      In spite of the 46% abv, the smell of alcohol is rather dominant. Marshmallows; dried fruit. A few drops of water make things much better.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Although the smell was not that promising, the taste is better then expected. The adding of some drops of water improves the taste as well. Sweet; fruits.
    • Finish
      85 85
