  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    The biscuity malty site does not save this rather middle of the pack offering
    • Nose
      musty, quite grainy
    • Taste
      quite astringent, oranges coming through, a biscuity note like a malted milk into the finish
    • Finish
      short

  3. jay83 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It depends always on the condition of the bottle. My sample was a very nice expression of a summerly workaday dram. Nice fruity elements (apple, banana, grapes) and barley sugar. Very nice sweetness and absolutely pleasant to drink!

    Dailuaine can be hit and miss for me. This oldie from the birth year of Janou is so-so. It has some interesting old fashioned dusty flavours, but in general it is not convincing.
    • Nose
      Lot of mushrooms and mustard intermingled with malty notes. More of these G&M CC old map label do have this profile. Barley sugar. Some cardboard. Whiff of smoke. Strange and dusty.
    • Taste
      Cooked apples. Lots of grain and cereal. Hints of apricot. Lemon zest and orange peel. Spicy wood. Marmite as well. Peat and pine at the background.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Grapefruit bitterness. Ginger. Clove.
