Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 1997 vW

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.87 points

  1. hefaists scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    A very pleasant and polite whisky. Clean and articulate, but lacking in adventurousness. The nose is fresh and fruity. On the palate there's fresh fruit, woody spiciness and some bitterness. The finish has a lengthy and rather intense bitterness (walnuts, I reckon). See what I mean? Competent and polite whisky that will not offend seasoned whisky drinkers, but will be equally appealing to novices. The fact that most marks are between 84 and 87 underscores this.

    Compared this one to cask 6012. That one is sweeter and creamier with more honey notes and it gives an older impression. This one is dryer and slightly more bitter with more grassy notes and a clearer influence from the bourbon cask. Some fig and tangerine in this one as well. Both are good value for money, but if you can get your hands on a bottle from the other cask I suggest you go for that one. I scored them 87 vs 85.
