Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 1997 DL

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.54 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This Dailuaine has many good qualities, its fruity nose being just one of them. It also has some lesser aspects, such as the lingering bitterness on the finish. Nevertheless, I found this an enjoyable whisky.
    • Nose
      Sweet and creamy, with plenty of fruit. Ripe apples, green grapes, pear skins and pineapple. A whiff of vanilla too. Balanced and attractive, albeit it a bit closed.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. A subtle fruitiness, accompanied by honey and a touch of bitter oak, as well as mild spices (pepper, ginger).
    • Finish
      Lingers on bitterness, somewhat drying. Quite spicy. Finally a hint of pear.

    Fruity and malty aroma, apple. pear, orange,

    lime, heather honey, anise and vanilla. Vanilla sweet taste, pepper,

    mint, almonds, anise, apple pie and milk chocolate. Medium long, malty

    and herbal end.

  5. Kostik scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    A successful whisky, without blistering but damn well, nice and quite interesting.
    • Nose
      Little alcoholic. Honey, vanilla, very sweet and dense. Chcolat with milk, custard. Brown. Gourmand and engaging!
    • Taste
      Pretty powerful, consistent texture. Spicy (pepper), honey, floral. Woody too. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Finish
      Not very long: floral, chocolate, and spicy cream at the end of the course.
