  5. mds51 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Despite its 46% of the alcohol is present but is in the air but pleasant. Needs time in the glass.
    Cask strength would have been negative in the malt, I think. The 46% are completely OK
    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla, citrus, pineapple, coconut, salty caramel, peaches.
    • Taste
      Cloves, spicy, vanilla, spicy forest honey, kumquat, citrus, tobacco, slightly leathery, cinnamon, a little bit of bitterness.
    • Finish
      The spicy character dominates and is accompanied by a touch of sweetness which lasts medium in the mouth.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    A rather unusual Dailuaine, quite different from casks 6012 and 6017 released earlier. Less honey but more fudgy, almost a bit like a Ben Nevis. 
    • Nose
      Honey, fudge and tangerine. Something vegetal that I haven't encountered in any other Dailuaine. A whiff of coriander.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly fudgy, but waxy as well. Honey, vanilla, sugared almonds, cigar, citrus, cinnamon and grass.
    • Finish
      Honey, cinnamon, caramel, green apple and tobacco.
