You gotta try this and i need to check out more freaking Dailuaines. Almost a minor legend. The slightly unexceptional nose and that tiniest hint of heat drag it down to a shameful 92.
Barley field, lots of citrus, hint of wax. It's very fresh in a way and just slightly sharp. Mirabelles, yellow plums. Hint of dry meat. Dry grass. Quite a theme with this one. Solid nose but not exceptional.
Very dusty and waxy arrival with a meaty undertone. Much like lamb actually. Interesting note. Big spicy attack in mid palate, probably the oak but nothing offensive. Slightly leathery and some damp/musty/mouldy stuff going on in the background. This whisky is intense without ever being over the top about it, plus this is quite an interesting take on unsexiness. There is absolutely nothing sweet about the palate(which i love right now). Turns a tiny bit hot towards the end but it can be ignored.
Medium to long. Dry, spicy. The after taste lingers for quite a while with a thick vanilla/citrus note.
