  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pretty decent stuff, uncomplicated profile.
    • Nose
      I am full of cold so the nose appears quite restrained to me.

      White wine, pear, pineapple and cream with a little wafer.
    • Taste
      The alcohol speaks and it is quite sharp at first but then settles down

      Its a little cardboard with hints of vanilla sweet desert wine and cream
    • Finish
      Medium length and getting sweeter with icing sugar at the finish

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Old Dailuaine with a specific 'naked' profile. Interesting spirit driven Speysider.
    • Nose
      Despite its age quite yeasty, rough and young. Like walking on the farm of my cousin in between the just harvested potatoes and strawballs. Cut grass. Some hay and lavender. Maltiness as well.
    • Taste
      Lots of lemon zest now intermingled with cereal and grains. Kiwi's. Orange peel. Lime. Bitterness of pink grapefruit. Barley sugar. Sandal wood. A little ginger. Vicks and pine later on.
    • Finish
      Long. Dry. Slightly bitter again. Liquorice in the aftertaste and a slight feeling of stout beer.
