  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2016]  A rather less known distillery and a rather unknown bottler - this looks interesting enough for another review - so I opened this bottle no. 171 today for curiosity (I bought it for 81 Euro in October 2004).  And I do not regret...

    Dailuaine is a working horse for the Diageo blends and nicely located in a small speyside valley.  The only official bottling available is a heavily sherried Flora & Fauna edition that almost completely mask the distillery's spirit character.  So this old bourbon matured bottling shows why Dailuaine is favoured by the blenders:  It is a fat, oily whisky with a rich body and subtle aromas that are nicely balanced.

    The nose is delicate with mostly floral notes while the mouth delivery is rich and tongue coating. There is a delicate peppery (white pepper) feeling that complements the rich barley sweetness - I like this.  Not spectacular, but delicious...  Maybe I should check some more older Dailuaine bottlings (unfortunately, there are not many out there)...

    [January, 2017]  I just opened a saved sample from this bottle and I can fully confirm my rating below.  Maybe I would go for even 91 points today...
