Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 1988 SMWS 41.56
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points
- It is decent enough but a little boring and non descript in all honesty.
Not a very complex profile.
Smells like an old grain whisky on vanilla, double cream and biscuit.
Spirity and sweet with a strong alcohol blast.
It is creamy at the back of the palate and again vanilla , biscuit but with hints of creamy orange
Medium length with sweetness on the tail
- SMWS Info
Flavour profile: Spicy and sweet
- SMWS Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale gold
A mild nose, thick and creamy (crème fraiche, cream soured
with lemon juice) with traces of Caramac and a light gamey note, more rabbit
than pheasant. The taste at natural strength is sweet, with light acidity; a
refreshing mentholated note and a hint of white chocolate. Water continues the
meaty/creamy theme, now reminiscent of Caboc Highland cheese; the texture is
smooth, creamy/buttery; sweet throughout, with a trace of salt and soft fudge
in the finish. The distillery is situated on the Spey at Caron and has a large
dark grains plant attached.
Drinking tip: At a shooting supper
