Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 23-year-old CA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.75 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    From an old dumpy bottle with the early large white distillery letters.

    The spirit and distillery character are here in spades, a complete opposite to a heavy sherried dram, not unlike old Cragganmore but not as unfrgiving

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A very good old Dailuaine
    • Nose
      White fruits of melon & pear with a little peach, vanilla and a little marzipan, fresh sawdust
    • Taste
      Nice creamy and fruity attack again with melon but now some green apple, sherbet, cream.

      This one seems to get stronger in the glass and gets fatter on the palate as you go on.
    • Finish
      Good medium length and remaining punchy.
