  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful pears / forest dram, only the short finish a bit disappointing.
    • Nose
      Fresh, grassy, ​​floral, apple juice, cider, hay, gentle oak, lavender, pear
    • Taste
      Crispy but delicious oak, but first pear in front, old apple rings, moss, nettle melon, forest, resin, very round and pleasant despite clear oak
    • Finish
      Pear with resin and honey, rather short

  2. Holder scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    very pleasantly flowery and fruity in the nose as well as in the taste, rarely a bottle was empty so fast. That makes you curious about more of Dailuaine.

    Who knows birch juice? But it fits. A great summer whisky, tasty and almost refreshing. He will not replace a Gin Tonic, well, you got the message.
    • Nose
      Immediately fresh and citrusy with a little malt. Life brings peace and strengthens the citrus notes. Nice, clean roasted coffee notes, fir honey, malt, a little later applesauce, a hint of ammonia, yes, and there he is really: birch sirup! The birch is now joined by some milk chocolate. Heat takes away all sweetness and makes it even more zestiger. Finished, however, chocolate and some honey are in the foreground.
    • Taste
      Very light sweetness with astringent, cesty basic character. Wonderfully harmonious, sour apple, some grapefruit juice. He is very soft, yes almost mild on the go, the mouthfeel is tight. Warmth gives a hint of sweetness here.
    • Finish
      Remains very dry for a while and still creepy, honey comes to the rear, clear and clean without being sweet. Finally, a little bitter apple, core case. Overall, the finish is medium.

    A nice pleasant whisky. For the price (currently around 59 €) is very nice. The nose is great. Taste and finish fall off a bit off.
    • Nose
      Apple juice, bright fruits (lemon, lime), honey, it smells nice of spring and freshly cut grass. The alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Taste
      sweet vanilla and again apples
    • Finish
      rather short, lemon and a very small amount of wood, again sweet

  7. Cartman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Spring whisky, very ethereal and fine.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, deadnettle, chickweed, vinous notes such as Riesling, clover, marshmallows, oatmeal cookies, apples, whitecurrants, lemon drops
    • Taste
      sweet, fruity white wine, porridge, acacia honey, quince jelly, light wood (maybe the eponymous birch), biscuits, apples (specifically: Finkenwerder Prinzenapfel)
    • Finish
      Departure: rather short, sweet, rhubarb and apple compote,
