Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 2002 McG

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.67 points

  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose and palate were not aligned, the palate experience was not expected from the nose. I only had one dram of this at a tasting with Clydesdale but this could be one of the most interesting whiskies I have ever tasted. The rate would probably increase with more drams. Must buy one of these while still available.

    (rating interval 84-88)
    • Nose
      buttery fudge, vanilla latte, condensed milk. Some exotic fruit way back, but not undefinable. 
    • Taste
      Explosion of exotic fruits, banana, melon and mango. Red berries plays in the background. 
    • Finish
      Medium in length and hints of butterscotch and vanilla.

  3. Maltmaniac72 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasty malt, in which none of the flavors is dominant. 86 points
    • Nose
      Opens fresh, sweet, butter caramel / -fudge, vanilla, (milk) chocolate. Very fruity on exotic fruits (melons, pineapple, mango). Sherrynoten come to the fore in the hull. No wood perceptible, nice :).
    • Taste
      Creamy explosion of exotic fruits, sweet malty and some sherry in the shell. Banana, melon, mango. Creamy texture of dark aromas (Schoki, some dried fruit). Also has something of a Grappa or Williams. Very nice mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long, intense, sweet, creamy.

    Original Tasting Notes

    Opens clean and fresh on the nose carrying a fruity sweet quality plus interesting toffee. The palate remains fruity and sweet and develops to a softly spiced character and hazelnut praline. The finish is medium long and runs to sweet pears and tangy mandaris. ( J )
