Whisky Reviews for Daftmill 2006

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.06 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I had searched all over for one of these to no avail so my wife phones me up just before the shops shut and asked me what that bottle was I wanted, I said they would be sold out but she went ahead and popped in the Lincoln whisky shop and hey presto they had one bottle left from their allocation of 9, I love my wife :)

    £95 is more than I would normally pay for 12 year old but after visiting the distillery I am happy to pay it.
    Whisky is for drinking and I am no auction flipper so I am going to open it and stick 2 fingers up to all the flippers.
    With only 1625 bottles this should have been limited to one per customer in my humble opinion.
    Lets get drinking.
    • Nose
      90 90
      A light, fruity, floral nose, classic lowlander I suppose and reminds me of some Rosebanks I have had.
      Plenty of vanilla, freshly sawn pine wood, pineapple, hint of peach juice, with a little warm biscuits fresh out the oven. There is lots more but I need to taste this :)
      With water:-
      More pastry and funnily a sliced chicken roll note?
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite a chewy mouthfeel, creamy but slightly dry but no sign of any fruit first off.
      I think water may release the fruit.
      2nd mouthful it is even creamier but I get some fruit now, a little lemon and again a little fresh pineapple but also some pastry notes in the mix.
      There is a dry edge to this which I feel will knock a point or 2 off the final score?
      I think there is a trace of peat but not really sure, I will need to ask Francis about that?
      The cereal notes are coming out now mixing with a little peat and the fruit is in the background.

      With water:-

      A little more citrus perhaps and more biscuit but water has dulled everything else, perhaps I put too much in so no more than a few drops otherwise you could kill it but persevering it does get sweeter, you need to experiment with this one
    • Finish
      88 88
      Decent length, remaining chewy with a citrus edge right at the end.

      The finish is longer with water and a little sweeter.

      I will re taste this in a few days time but it is a 12 year, Daftmill is not one of those new distilleries that puts new make out, then a 2 & 3 year old so much respect to Daftmill for this 12 year, I consider this a good buy :)

    It took less than a week for bottles to appear on here at double your money + by private sellers.
    And look at the pathetic shop price at £480 , madness and greed all rolled into one, I need to look this shop up and see what other bargains they have?
    A few days ago when whisky International on line in Edinburgh had 2 bottles left they were £300 so they sell one and slap £180 on the remaining bottle, nice. Yeah I know shops will charge what the market will stand and lets face it they are only in it to make money but a greed is greed, pure and simple.
    These bottles were sold for around £95 last week from reputable retailers.
