  1. Gil firth scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Great texture. Banana bomb. Apples. Perfume. Coconut. This is definitely the lowland king.
    Take the price aside... This is one of the best 46% 10-12 yo whisky.
    Great job.

      Medium with spice, mild pepper, sweetness of flowers, heather and wet almonds.

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Totally delicious and pretty singular, Daftmill already has a style of its own.
    • Nose
      Light and inviting with bright notes of lemon zest, some wet pebbles and ripe bananas, but also a touch of vanilla pods. Whispers of quince and mirabelles as well. Finally just a whiff of hops and some floral notes too. Delicate but fragrant.
    • Taste
      Proper creamy mouthfeel followed by a lively and peppery arrival. It's quite grassy (freshly cut), there some cotton candy and marshmallows as well, but then also a sprinkle of lemon zest and pickled ginger.
    • Finish
      Touches of lemon pith, crème caramel and gentle spices. Medium in length.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Pear Juice, Custard, Pineapple, Cowshed, Straw, Ginger, Lychee, Herbs. A comparatively complex nose that also has something peculiar about it.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fruity, bitter and sour at the same time. Actually quite interesting, but the bitterness is too dominant for me - the whole thing is more reminiscent of a compost heap.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish lets the fruit dry out slightly and leaves sour, bitter and woody notes on the tongue.

    There is always a touch of bitterness in the background, not the most interesting Daftmill indeed
    • Nose
      87 87
      Citrusy, lemony, vanilla, wet hay, red apple, some cereals, cookie dough, honeydew, almonds, some marzipan
    • Taste
      86 86
      Little punchy, oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, stone fruits, lemon peel, honey, vanilla, almonds
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long, warm, zesty, more lemon peel, pepper, some ginger, vanilla, little leafy notes

  6. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Lemon hay, vanilla, stone fruits, not my favourite daftmill quite plain

  7. BunnaMan scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet estery canned pineapple parfume, floral and fruity. Long maturation and early cut from the heart?
      Notes of banana and sweet citrus followed by cantelope or honeydew melon.
    • Taste
      Vanilla and honey and sweet cantelope. Warming. A light and well balanced whisky
    • Finish
      Short to medium
      Some mild spices, sweet floral and fruitiness. A soft bitterness that mixes well with the sweetnes.

  8. 3_243F6 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Pretty good. I think this one shows the Daftmill distillate off quite clearly.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Vanilla, hay, lemons, bananas, marzipan, wet dough, subtle pineapple. Very much Daftmill, but I agree that this one feels a little plain.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Citrusy and oily, with vanilla, pineapples, apples, lemons, some melons and dough. Quite creamy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Some spice appears alongside the rest of the profile from the palate. Pretty zesty too. Warm and fresh. Quite leafy.

    Harmless, but overpriced.
    • Nose
      83 83
      apple spritzer
    • Taste
      82 82
      Subtle heather, even more subtle yellow fruits and vanilla.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The heathers blur after a short time - and that's it.

    • Nose
      90 90
      Sweet light fruit. Maybe lychee, quince, yellow plum. Quite stimulating.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Still pleasant fruit, but with a sour or bitter influence.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Is the wood coming through now? It's getting more bitter.

  14. ConvalRen scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    fruit bomb
    • Nose
      87 87
      Vanilla, ripe pear, Asian plum, liquorice notes combine with lychee and apple. For a short time I had tropical fruits, like passion fruit in the nose.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Again vanilla and ripe pear, some peppery spiciness, slightly bitter notes and wood. Supplemented by pastry dough notes and in the background lychee and again some Asian plums with tropical fruits.
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium length Notes of pear, wood, vanilla and subtle hazelnut and ginger remain, albeit not for long.
