Whisky Reviews for Daftmill 2009

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.29 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is similar to cask 28 for LMDW , hints of sulphur and very sweet with a big toffee note, i cannot help but think that strong Sherry casks over power the Daftmill spirit a little and the distillery is more suited to bourbon casks like the winter and summer releases and the excellent bourbon cask 37/2007 for japan.
    However sometimes it goes right like the excellent cask 39 which is one of my favourite whiskies of the last few years or so

    I believe 8000 entrants applied via ballot, for the chance to buy a bottle from an outturn of just 321 bottles. The Foz got lucky and has split his bottle amongst participating Swaggers.

    N: Very Glenallachie 15yo-like [WLP85], sherry-syrup/PX-wise. Almost meaty, certainly with a phenolic oily touch, but mainly, this one talks of boozy raisins.

    T: Very fruity, thankfully not too sweet, but very formidable at strength. Reduced down to 39% abv, we see a similar theme with a different colour palate.

    F: Not exactly resinous, well sort of.

    C: Definitely the most cask-driven Daftmill of those that I’ve tried [just 7 plus a few cask samples]. Very pleasant all the same.
