Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 2008 SV

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.72 points

  1. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      lush. Sweet fruit, fully ripe banana, mango and coconut. Sour green malt and malt sugar. The bourbon barrel has done a great job in the 10 years, here is bourbon barrel in its purest form. Over time, flowery, grassy notes come through, as does vanilla
    • Taste
      massive, creamy at the same time. Summer meadow, fully ripe peaches and a nice oak flavor with dark caramelized sugar
    • Finish
      Cocoa powder and again honey sweet

  3. yellowcake scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      creamy, caramel, toffee, somewhat alcoholic, nutty, roasted almonds, vanilla, later the wood comes through a little more;
      It becomes much sweeter with water.
    • Taste
      The vanilla becomes clearer. It is reminiscent of a cake with cream, or a sticky toffee pudding. Shortbread, butter, puff pastry, nice and sweet, uncomplicated, straightforward and good
    • Finish
      medium, the sweetness remains, but is no longer as intense, but the character remains with the very buttery, creamy body

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 33 points Connoisseur

    My bottle - like that of Malzbrenner apparently - had a clear cork defect and was therefore inedible. I don't know what an appropriate score would be, but over 50 seems inflationary to me.

  6. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 64 points Connoisseur

    I had only one sample of the whisky, so in conclusion, I can only speculate that the original bottle was provided with a faulty cork.
    My sample was not edible and showed a strong Korkschmecker / Muffton on.
    • Nose
      73 73
      Stinging alcohol, some malt, a little sweetness and then a hint of muff.
    • Taste
      65 65
      Sharpness, something sweet and then already the cork / muff. Not edible!
    • Finish
      55 55
      The Korkschmecker is no longer wegzubekommen from the palate, so to speak, an extra-long finish.
