  1. AnnEm scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A nicely balanced Dailuaine with a little old-school flavor or at least what I imagine it to be.

      At the beginning a combination of flavors, as I have often had with medium-aged Dailuaines - raspberry cream candy (artificial sweetness) and spring grass. Barley sugar. It then develops very nicely into juicy, light-colored stone fruits. Quince and apricot puree. Apple compote. Very intensely aromatic and finely spicy oak. Some carnation. There is also a slight impression of a dusty cellar, as I had with the old blends across the board (I find it pleasant here).

      Intense and dense. Tickling slightly, he has a lot of strength for the 43% (or is that my impression due to the heat?). Sweet-tart-slightly melty. Light, fruity-tart character. Quite grassy (which I really like).
    • Finish

      Fine carpet of aromas: sweet-tart-sour-mineral-wood-spicy-tangy-fruity. Creamy oak flavor with a bit of fresh ginger heat. Warming. Another touch of cellar dust.
