  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Concentrated ex-bourbon. Fruit concentrate & wood. Almost too much of the barrel. Or. the barrel was probably about to go bad. But this is not the first time that it has happened to me at the Dailuaine. But here it seems to me for the first time that I have a whisky concentrate in front of me to dilute.

      Very concentrated barrel aromas. Half-ripe nectarines, wood, uh ... pumpkin !!! I've never had either.

      Oh ... did I say anything about concentrate?

      Long with a lot of oak and above all I have the feeling as if I had drunk a multivitamin juice concentrate straight.

      So after this one you have to stop a tasting.

    Typical C & S uniform porridge with poorly integrated alcohol ...

    Beautiful Bourbon color, very tasty. Once and more and more ...
    • Nose
      A fullbodied malt with deep bourbon nuts. Massive Citrus / Grape, zesty orange, banana. Butterscotch, honey, caramel / fudge / toffee and fresh wood. Nice nose. 45 points
    • Taste
      Bourbon sweet on the cake, creamy, lots of caramel, lots of vanilla, lots of spicy honey. Wonderfully balanced despite the high alcohol content. Palate filling, yummy. Something spicy. 44 points
    • Finish
      Medium-long, creamy, not bitter and always typical bourbon notes (honey, caramel). You just want more of it afterwards,

    Hogsead cask according the label. Looks like a bourbon cask but has some sherry influence as well... nice and weird!
    • Nose
      full with spices - pepper, butter, citrus, orange and iron
    • Taste
      spices - pepper, butter, orange, creamy vanilla, melon, pastry and nuts
    • Finish
      medium dying with bourbon, spices, orange, corn and creamy

  5. maltaholic scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    When I smell the sample vial, it is very soft and wonderfully aromatic, with light wood and sawdust.
    I smell the sunken glass, then it smells rather strict and alcoholic.

    In the mouth wonderful strong, a real Brummer.
    Wood, spices, a slight dryness on the tongue.
    In the background then licorice and a little vanilla.

    Very cask-driven for a Dailuaine.
    • Nose
      Orange, white chocolate, peanut, malt, cream, apricot, lacquered wood, malt, butter, honey, apple, grain, vanilla sugar and light spice.
    • Taste
      Spice like in an Asian dish, such as ketjap and curry. Quite some oak as well. Caramel, pastry, orange, honey, vanilla, brown sugar, apple, galia melon and grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Caramel, orange, honey, oak, clove, cream, pastry, brown sugar, cinnamon, porridge, melon and smoke.
