    Serge says:

    Dailuaine 17 yo 'The Manager's Dram' (59.9%, OB, Sherry, 2000)  Colour: white wine. Nose: much, much more austere than the MC at first nosing, probably from some less active casks. It’s only after a while that the fragrant notes of tangerines and blood oranges do emerge, as well as a bigger grassiness than in the MC. Other than the different cask influences, the general profiles are actually very similar. With water: closed! Interesting that water made this one almost mute. Only some distant whiffs of oranges do remain as well as a little hay, even after twenty minutes of breathing. Mouth (neat): same scenario as on the nose, a citrusy profile but with less vanilla. With water: very much alive this time, less sweet and less vanilled than the MC and maybe a tad more complex. Various herbs, teas and spices. Thyme infusion and honey, a little pine resin (sweets), touches of bergamots, drops of orange liqueur (triple-sec or else)…  Finish: long, firm, with more spices now. Quite some nutmeg and ginger in the aftertaste. Comments: it’s not unlike the MC, only with less ‘wood technology’. Maybe one more point but I’m splitting hairs. SGP:561 - 86 points.

  3. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Crivens this stuff is rare! This was released way back when (2000), and
    it was selected for bottling by Dailuaine`s Distillery Manager. This was
    given to friends and staff of the distillery, and thus is an
    exceptional find! Very tasty too…
