    On the nose, scents of herbs, it smells of dry stone at the bottom of a torrent!

    mineral, grassy, ​​floral also with fresh fruit at first (pear, apple), then a little raisins.
    return of invading wood and cream.

  8. HammerHead scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very a-typical for a Speysider, waxy and very mineral (broth seasoned with Aromat, bouillon cubes), gunpowder and a little sherry. After adding water and some 20 minutes time notes of pineapple start to appear in the background.

    Taste: full bodied, savory, salty, some sherry, mustard, nutmeg and black pepper.

    Finish: long, a continuing development of the initial tastes, savory, mineral, nutmeg and pepper. Not nearly as bitter as I would generally expect for a whisky with such a savory and spicy profile.

  9. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    A very elusive Speyside distillery, rare to find in official bottlings, Dailuaine actually produces a very interesting and complex whisky. Given the richness and rounded character of the original distillate, only a few months in Pedro Ximenez casks were required to reach perfection, just adding a hint of tropical fruit and farmy notes to an already very intense malt. At the nose it’s very mineral and waxy, with a slightly organic touch of damp earth and wood: a huge “old Highlands” profile, not austere but very traditional. At the palate, again the impression is more Highlands than Speyside, more malty than fruity or winey, with a very robust character of cereals, followed by pepper, mustard and a hint of oaky tannins.
