  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    for me the malt was difficult and challenging
    Little of the sherry came through for me
    I liked the overall picture
    • Nose
      Pear, peach, mini lemon, nutty, slightly dark caramel, sweetness, mini oak, slightly sherry, slightly raisins, mini sulfur, vanilla becomes more, dark malt
      late easy rinse water ??

      with water: sweet, simple chewing gum, muesli, cheesecake, becomes nutty, minimally a flowery-earthy note
    • Taste
      round, strong, oily
      nutty, cereals / muesli, tweed fabric, oak, a little sherry, a little raisins, the alcohol tingles a bit, a hairy note

      with water: muesli, liquorice !! (old, dark, hard), vanilla !!!, hairy note
    • Finish
      medium to long
      Oak slightly scruffy, pear, slightly malt, spicy, slightly sherry, a note I cannot name

      with water: liquorice, wood notes, a chemical note

      astringent on the tongue

  3. KaBe1983 scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    I love Dailuaine! Chocolate, grain, vanilla and spiciness on the nose. Sherry and marzipan with dry fruits in the taste and finish. Great whisky!

  4. WHISKYEUROPA2009 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    SMELL floral notes with a light spice, shredded almonds, grapefruit, mint chocolate, marzipan bread. TASTE soft sherry notes and nutmeg with marzipan in the finish.
