  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 88 points Super 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.

    The notes are a little harsh!
    Nice official bottling: on notes of flower stems, sap and menthol.
    Although the finish is dry, it is very long.

    If you want to buy an old package of Yamazaki 12,it will cost you a lot.This scotch,it almost tastes the same as that,but even more characteristics shows than that expensive Japanese whisky.

  6. 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.

  7. The_Osprey scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Dailuaine 16yo Flora & Fauna 43%. Aroma is beautiful. Baked red apple. Sherry. Fruited chocolate. Slight perfume. Gorgeous dirty oloroso oak Taste is juicy sherry. Blackberry. Jammy. Stupidly fruity. Faint chocolatey burnt smoked notes. Really great value for money and exactly what you want from sherried whisky. Suffice to say I was impressed with this one. (3.85/92)

  10. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Great, because very different from others!
    Whereby, it should be for the price (~ 75 €) ...

      Wow, probably the "driest" nose I've had in a glass for a long time. Lots of dried figs, that kind of sweetness it is. Very clean and appetizing.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Not really sweet in the mouth, but overwhelming, like homemade caramel with little sugar.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish, I really like that. A bit of tannic bitterness.
