  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great bottling, big nose, full flavours.

    Head to head with the more sparkling 'Dailuaine 1992 DR Individual Cask Bottling' this one is much more creamy with a heavy ripe fruitiness to it. Also it's clearly less bitter in taste and finish (unless someone has switched the labels on my sample bottles).
    • Nose
      89 89
      Quite astonishing, lots of sweet fruitiness, butter, grainy, cookie dough, a little nutty, vanilla, bitter oranges, peaches, mango's, pears, stewed apple and a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Oily, peach, pear and mango, a subtle grain note, quite spicy with pepper, nutmeg and a small amount of wood bitters.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short to medium in length: lingering peach and mango notes, a fair amount of pepper and a mild wood bitterness.

    • Nose
      Big fully flavoured nose. Caramel, floral, fruity and buttery. Red apples and vanilla, Quite waxy. This is an intens maturation. Beautiful stuff!!
    • Taste
      Oily and fatty. Sweet and light spiced on arrival! It certainly needs some water to restrain the beast. Again caramel, vanilla, dry and bittersweet.
    • Finish
      Vanilla and buttery. Like a creamy vanilla pie. Some smoke like from a fireplace at home. Bittersweet.

  3. andre8x8 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Nose:
    Green apple, butter, vanilla.

    Taste:
    Sharp, bitter, metallic, later sweet overripe fruit.
    With water softer, butter, peach.

    Nose:
    Short, dry, tannins, wood.
    With water less dry and some sweet fruit, wood, there remains a strange sour grassy aftertaste

    Score:
    83

  4. Willum scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful dram. Fine mouthfeel but in my opinion a bit too sweet.
    • Nose
      87 87
      pleasantly sweet fruity (especially apples and coconut), caramel, honey and butter.
    • Taste
      86 86
      a little less sweet, but also apples, melon, grapefruit-bitter and a pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      mid-long, sweet ... with a bitter edge

    I found the nose to have a nice complexity, but the taste is not my thing. I do not like the bitter. However, the taste is rich in taste and makes it a mature whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A kind of blossom. Lavender? Floral and fruity. Sweet. Again the apples and pears and if we are still comparing, with this Dailuaine I smell some sweet fruits like raspberries, strawberries.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The high ABV does come around the corner. Sharp, spicy. Pepper. Bitter.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long finish. Bitter. Stick to the tongue for a long time.

  8. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    So all in all, this is a great whisky. Few errors, good taste, price quality and age also fine in balance. Nose / Flavor / Finish: 87/86/85
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, with a kind of wine like smell, little must smell. Furthermore, some smells like heather, honey and straw. After a while, a smell comes in that you can smell from those sweetened, sour peaches from Haribo, to stay in detail.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Nice fresh acid with a sweet twist. There is something mineral in it. The body is medium. There is a fair amount of caramel, but that is quickly drowned out by the sour peaches.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Short-medium length. A lot of sweets, caramel and some wood. It flattens out pretty faintly with a small influence of tannins. In the finish, the bourbon maturation is easy to find.
