  1. UisgePunk scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    pure ripe citrus, oranges, grapefruits, mandarins, clementines, candied zests, pineapples, ripe pears, nice ripe fruit. bigger with water, more mints herbs and earth, deeper and richer, not the sherry notes, but a trace of oiliness to lengthen it and widen it

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A fresh and fruity Speysider, a suitable dram in sunny weather. Classic, without a real defect, balanced, pleasant.
    • Nose
      Fresh green apple first, followed closely by pear and banana peel still green, not ripe. A little sweet malt after aeration.
    • Taste
      Fruity and sweet. Vanilla pear, liquid white sugar, and ripe white grapes. The slightly tart green apple appears at times.
    • Finish
      Average. Spicy, woody apple peel that dries out your mouth a little.

  6. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Great Dailuaine. Ideal dessert whisky or
    Father’s Day present. Swims like a champ. Available for 85 EUR. Recommened. I fear my bottle will not last long…
    • Nose
      The nose is wonderfully sweet on
      candy sugar and fruit like peach, oranges and a slice of lemon. It offers a
      little grass and maybe even some buttercups. Heath
      bush! Something that reminds me of bubblegum, but not disturbing in the least. Hint of cinnamon and a pinch of camphor. Nice,
      complexe nose that makes my mouth water. With a teaspoon of water it is less
      sweet, but more ‘green’. However: suddenly I get some nougat! Nice.
    • Taste
      It arrives quite powerfully on
      the palate. Great body. Very spicy now (white pepper, ginger and some
      liquorice). The fruit is now mostly citrus: lime and white grapefruit. The
      buttercups return. Lemongrass? Granny Smith
      apples and some green tea towards the end. Nicely warming. Diluted it is
      dangerously quaffable.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long, warm,
      spicy and ‘green’, if you know what I mean.
