Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 1997 ED

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.33 points

  1. Toffie76 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      fresh, fruity, lots of vanilla. Honey / heather / wax. A trace of burnt, smoke (distant evocation). Toffee, a little leather. Alcohol seems well integrated. Many cereals / malt
    • Taste
      the length is medium, round, honeyed. Vanilla is fully expressed as well as some waxy side. A small lack of complexity and a dram that develops towards a final an alcoholic nothing (without added water)
    • Finish
      a little "naked" and dominated by alcohol. The addition of water erases this defect remarkably well and pushes a little further the vanilla / biscuit aspect. The finish now brings out more fruit too. The whisky seems to be stabilizing and equilibrating. The complexity is much improved in this way.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice, nice, and very present on the fruits. The alcohol is maybe a little too present at times.
    • Nose
      Yellow apple peel, orange zest, and hints of dried apricot. Woody scrolls emerge afterwards.
    • Taste
      Rich and powerful, sweet on apricot pear and sweet spices. Woody vanilla behind all that.
    • Finish
      Average. Spices become more abundant and spicy. A fruity bitterness appears.
