  1. lyndondd428 scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    N: very open and almost deafening due to the aromatic load present: first of all we feel all his years, with a compact and 'shielding', silky note, made of wax crayons, cane sugar, warm wood ... Spicy, herbaceous and citrus tips , including bergamot, tea leaves and tamarind. But all this, mind you, acts as a sparring partner to a fruity sweetness of monstrous intensity: peaches and very, very ripe bananas; and again, toffee and butter, short pastry, which somehow recall malt. Croissants with jam. We could go on much longer with the most delicious suggestions ...

    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.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Dense and rich whisky, magnificent, strict aroma, wide palette of derivatives, complex composition, a sense of age; the taste is slightly oversaturated with oak, however, bitterness in the development is smoothed out, creamy herbal shades begin to prevail; the finish smoothly returns us from taste to aroma, closing the tasting circle, and possibly inviting us to a new round of spirals.

    Nose: wide open and almost deafening to the aromatic load this: first, you feel all this years, with a compact and notes 'shielding', silky, made ​​of wax crayons, brown sugar, warm wood ... Tips spicy, herbaceous and citrusy, including bergamot, tea leaves and tamarind. But all this, mind you, is the sparring partner to a fruity sweetness intensity monstrous peaches and bananas very, very mature; and yet, toffee and butter, pastry, that somehow recall malt. Croissants with jam. You could go on and on with the most delicious suggestions...Palate: in attack, seems very restrained, with a body on overload and not the absolute prevalence of the notes of wax and tannins. But then in a moment the situation gets completely out of hand unsuspecting drinker: exploding fruit and, in additions to the jubilation of the nose, which here gives the reply, leave something so close to the red fruit and coconut. Tilt total. There is a great toasted malt and sometimes seem to hear the smoke pipe. Mixed dried fruit and carob.Final: rare intensity and complexity, so as to fully replicate the features of the palate, with perhaps just a little wood smoke and in more generous with herbs.Comments:  Frankly, what more do you want from your glass? This Dailuaine is silky, complex, intense, with a malt character and still very much alive to lead the dances after almost 40 years in the company of a barrel however much flavoring. A balance. That is miraculous:  93/100 .
