  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 88 points Administrator

    Showcasing some of the lesser-known distilleries in the Diageo portfolio, Flora & Fauna gives you access to whiskies that usually go into blends. Dailuaine 16 is a Speysider with a singular style. Both intriguing and complex, the aroma features earthy sherry notes, plums and oranges, enriched by cocoa, dates and hints of rose water. Cherries, mint and emerging wood spices form the palate, supplemented by strawberries, herbal bitterness and a whisper of peat smoke in the lasting finish. This malt is definitely one of the best F&F expressions left today.

  3. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice sherry whisky. A wonderful aroma and a spicy, not too sweet body.
    • Nose
      sweet sherry, red apples and wild berries, maybe some cherry. Behind it a lot of malt, a little caramel and oak.
    • Taste
      Sweet approach, then drier. Spicy sherry, oak. Nuts and a touch of damp earth.
    • Finish
      long and spicy. Nuts again.

  5. Gere scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Well balanced whisky
    • Nose
      Sherry Noten would tap Oloroso.
      Slight sweetness like Carmel but also a somewhat bitter, very fine line of leather and tobacco
    • Taste
      Very well balanced sweetness after fruits, raisins.
      A little nutty at first.
    • Finish
      Light wine notes very subtle. Drying with a hint of cinnamon.
