P: in attack it seems very restrained, with a not very frayed body and the absolute prevalence of the notes of wax and tannins. But then in an instant the situation escapes completely from the unaware drinker: the fruit explodes and, in addition to the blaze of the nose, which here grants the replica, something close to the red fruit and a lot of coconut come out. Total tilt. There is a large toasted malt and at times it seems to smell of pipe smoke. Mixed dried fruit and carob.
F: of rare intensity and complexity, so much so as to replicate the characteristics of the palate in full, perhaps only with a little more wood smoke and with generous aromatic herbs.
Frankly, what do you want more from your glass? This Dailuaine is silky, complex, intense, with a malt of personality and still very much alive to lead the dances after almost 40 years spent in the company of a barrel that is still very aromatic.
