Whisky Reviews for Daftmill 2006

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.92 points

  1. MaltMusketeers scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    A great lowland whisky that's a must try in our books. It's superbly balanced, sweet and spicy with a lot of character. Daftmill's patience has undoubtedly paid off with this second release - we cannot wait to try their next offerings.

    https://maltmusketeers.com/brand/daftmill/2006-summer-batch-release#tasting
    • Nose
      Initially very fruity with lots of lemon, honey and melted butter. Fresh cream, butterscotch, hints of orange oil, marmalade and vanilla pod. Lots of sweet, summery notes. After sitting for a few minutes, an ever so slight minerally note appears - akin to St Magdalene.
    • Taste
      lemon zest, honey and spice burst, with hints of fresh marzipan, fresh mint, tangy oranges and toffee. There's a great oaky note in there, balanced with some wood spice. The melted butter shows itself if you let the spirit rest on your tongue.
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish, more spices and white pepper arriving, hints of toasted sunflower seed - more the shell rather than the seed. Moving to more honeyed vanilla with an ever so slight earthiness, finishing with a very subtle ground down Parma Violet note.

    Maybe I dont understand something, but this whisky on the nose is just like new make. Taste is a little better, but in fact I was really disappointed.

    N: Soft peachy fruity acetone floral.

    T: There’s a unique, youthful floral complex at its heart. I find lots more here on the palate than on the nose, and this trend continues into the finish.

    F: Oranges, more peaches, aromatic flowers.

    C: Tasty & characterful juice. Good job, but let’s not get too carried away. Bottles of this batch were released in June for £95, going at auction a month later for a whopping £430. Francis tells me he still only receives £29 per bottle regardless.

    Scores a B[-]

    Add three drops of water: the aroma is still wheat, lemon peel, hay and spice, the taste becomes creamy smooth, hay, malt, spice. The salty sweetness of the tail rhyme is more comfortable, the pungency is much lower, and it becomes more malt, nuts and creamy chocolate.

    Conclusion: The first bottle of wine is heavy, the aroma is mainly tonality of vanilla and melon. The aroma of peach in the middle and the back makes this wine have different performances, but the overall taste is more monotonous and full, not Other lowland areas have a more refreshing taste, although the rhyme and spice are more obvious but some sweet notes remain in the mouth. (twenty two)
    • Nose
      At first, the grain, vanilla, melon, lemon peel, and the middle and the back of the grain began to appear slightly wheaty, malt, peach, hay, spice. The wine is slightly heavy.
    • Taste
      Medium taste. Malt, lemon peel, roasted pineapple, candied sweet and sour, nuts (21)
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Candied sweet and sour, honey syrup, coconut, malt, nuts, walnuts, wooden tannins, spicy feeling is more obvious (21)

  6. Hakan G did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The second release from farm distillery Daftmill, this Lowland malt was put into 7 ex-Bourbon barrels in July 2006, waiting patiently in the farm’s warehouse for nearly 12 years. (Daftmill distillery posted on facebook 29 june 2018 pictures of the summer release bottles. So they are nearly 12 years old)
    The nose opens with freshly baked Victoria sponge, curry leaves and cinder toffee, with tinned peaches and warm gorse flower developing with time in the glass. These notes continue onto the palate, but are joined by lemon zest, molten honey on toast, marmalade and vanilla pods, with wood polish and marzipan appearing on the back palate. On the finish, waves of honey and spicy oak linger, with fruit-salad chews appearing after a minute or so. This is an excellent dram for a warm summer’s day
