- Just a holiday of some kind, a firework, a mole-fountain, a vortex of flower-citrus freshness, fun and carefree. Perfect balance - all components are sustained in a single style, the transition from aroma to taste is almost imperceptible, excellent work with the fortress, the pitch is just high, one hundred percent hit the target, and my congratulations to the botliter are rare, but accurate - keep it up.
Open, fresh, flowery-honey, lemon and orange peel, lemonade, vanilla, light carpentine notes, lacquer, lollipops, mint, very deep and rich.
A powerful, fresh, direct continuation of the aroma - lemonade, flower-honey, very bright, citrus - orange, mandarin, lollipops with acidity, over time, spicy and thick oak colors with varnish and vanilla appear, very diverse and rich.
Citrus fruit, lemon peel, creamy notes, cream, orange peel, very fresh, green apple, light oak knitting tone in the background.
- This was tasted blind.
Honey, weissbier, grapefruit, wine. With water it gets more fruity with apples and pears.
Nuts and honey combined with punchy alcohol, light bitterness
Honey and salt. When adding water, it turns to soft vanilla and cookie dough.
- Green apple nose, cereal, paraffin (chemical wax). Lots of wax / paraffin on the palate, watery texture, well integrated alcohol, green apple. Average final. So-so.
- I've had a stronger sample of Dailuaine which revealed a more different profile than this one. This is a very friendly whisky for all. Low priced good whisky that's to good to be just a daily dram.
Fresh start with really classic touches. Honey, malt and fruit. To me the basics of a (non peated) whisky.
Nice and easy. Sugarred bread. Caramels, apple and vanilla pudding. Less fresh as the nose, more grains, almond, cake and sweetness from ripe fruit. Porridge and custard.
Still a good deal of sweetness with more oak, cinnamon and vanilla
- An easy product, but not very complex. A nose a little confusing that does not want to go further, but the mouth is nice.
Cereals, green apple, a lot of alcohol. A slightly waxy nose (paraffin?)
Sweet, sweet, easy, on the ripe apple, almost tatin. Caramel, wood and cough syrup. It's easy and greedy
Wood, apple, sugar. Average length.
- Straw color, nose on the apple, the
wax, paraffin, a little simple and slightly alcoholic at first. In
mouth the alcohol is very well integrated by cons, powerful enough, one
found a lot of green fruits, cereals, vanilla, a little sweet.
Final of good length, but it remains very simple, a young Speyside
as there are a thousand.
- N: mandarin, tobacco, pepper and later sweaty socks
T: bitter sharp fruits
F: grape fruits, lemon and creamy
