    A very beautiful, round, harmonious and especially dangerous sweet-tasty malt. The finish is especially evident in sugary notes. The taste is a nice balance between sweet, minimal fruity notes and spice.
    • Nose
      Malt, vanilla then it gets fuller and heavier, surprisingly, the typical PX notes hold back a bit or are not present. Citrus notes like sweet oranges, almost no alcohol, he is not particularly complex but always pleasing. The malt / grain note and a certain sweetness remains dominant. Interesting, in the end it gets a bit more piercing. Very subtly mixed with a berry note, which I would describe as Aronia or currant (but is really subtle). In the second nose a bit nuttier, sweet and the sherry comes out more clearly.
    • Taste
      first really sweet, almost sugary and malty, plus the strength of the alcohol, oak, slight bitterness, oranges with light herbs and some spices (nutmeg, pepper, clove?). From sip to sip more and more sweet and pleasing.
    • Finish
      medium-length finish with oak, sweetness, malt, a little honey, caramel, little sweetened coffee and milk and dark chocolate, with some walnut. At the end a pinch of pepper and salt in the cake dough. Nice finish!

    A great whisky with strong grain and nut flavors. Fruity sherry and extreme spiciness harmonize very well with the other flavors! A fine whisky that whets your appetite for more.
    • Nose
      At first, nuts and cereal notes show up. Gradually, the nose releases fruity aromas. Orange flavors mingle with slightly overripe berries, the fruity sherry is intense. Above all lies a sweet grain aroma. The 53.9% alcohol is integrated harmoniously, only after a long time, the nose is slightly sprittig and musty.
    • Taste
      Again, fruity cereals, followed by fruity sherry and delicate, dark wood aromas. Now the taste turns into an interesting and very spicy wood aroma. Nuts stick to the tongue, a touch of coolness and mint mingles with spices.
    • Finish
      The finish starts extremely spicy and exudes a wonderful chubby mouthfeel. A pinch of salt and hint of pepper (sharpness) comes from the spicy wood. Now the Dailuanie fires properly on the palate. After the fire slowly goes out, a fine nut aroma sets in. Dark chocolate mixes with old walnuts at the end.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Chocolate drops and freshly harvested cereals. Nuts, barley sugar and deep, subtle dried fruit depth.Palate: The rich meatiness you hope for from Dailuaine is present here alongside nutty dates and rich spice.Finish: Choc chip and hazelnut cookies. I'm in heaven.Overall: A whisky that's both unique and simply delicious. Dangerously drinkable!
