    Gadget number 5 on the Whisky Festival Radebeul, at the same time my first encounter with the Dailuaine distillery. It's an independent performance from Anam Na H-Alba, just another line than the previous ones. Packaged in 168 bottles. Barrels: Refill Sherry Hogshead.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fresh, citrus scent. Sherry's influence is somehow not caught, perhaps just lightly, and rather a dry sherry style. Fresh raw wood, a green stick with a peeled bark, a green rubber teddy bear. Pretty rich and full of smell, where there is still something to discover. (88 b)
    • Taste
      The taste fits well with the scent. Spicy, fresh, citrus, fruity sweetness, green unripe fruit. (87 b)

    • Nose
      Fresh, dry, slightly sour. Unripe light grapes, green apples, some sand and dry potting soil. Kiwi, mint, lemon thyme.
    • Taste
      Malt, hay, some honey and pepper. Pleasant oak and dark chocolate.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    But, quite stable part. You have to stand on Bourboncask and these heathen, then this is a nice Everydaydram.
    • Nose
      Pretty closed at first, some leather, malt, oak, nothing more, like a wall in the nose, heathland follows after a while, cereal, but especially the heather herbs as you know them from Highland Park I find here, fresh straw, but pleasant, a little caramel, a touch of cinnamon, linen sacks
    • Taste
      Ohja, here comes the heath meadow to the front, but also more salt, now I tend more to a young Bunna, sweetness of vanilla, toffee and honey play with the grasses and dried herbs, thyme, lavender, a little rosemary, hay, pebbles All very bright and fresh as if you were standing on a dune between heather meadow and sea, but a calm, no rugged waves that blow a salty spray in the face, some coffee beans probably. in the bitterness and leather
    • Finish
      Dry and malty as expected, cornflakes, heather meadow, malt, toffee, medium long, but quite pleasant if you like it dry

  5. alectron scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      dusty, card-board-y oak, grainy/soggy oats, some spices, pineapple ester/white gummybears, some yeast, some smoke, a bit of metal & lemon (76)
      Later: oak turns a tad older/elegant, more on vanilla cookie dough now than separate vanilla & yeast, lemon a bit more prominent. (82)
      W water: citronat/lemon peel & dishwasher liquid, the more water, the more to the fore it comes, also some cinnamon depending on water levels (79)
    • Taste
      sweet, lots of vanilla syrup, some pears & pineapple, grainy, mineral/smokey, a bit of sawdust,  (82)
      W water: surprisingly smokey & grainy, but looses some sweeter notes that kept it nicely in balance & some faint bitter notes come through (78)
    • Finish
      more vanilla syrup, some honey, alcohol rearing its\' head at the end, some lemon, a slight funny cellulose bitterness at the end. (77)
      Later: bitterness subsides & menthol joins in and increasing over time. (81)
      W water: still honey, vanilla & some lemon, but bitterness increases and sets in earlier, not cellulose/cardboard like as before, but rather bitter green tea. (78)
