    87/88.
    • Nose
      Fudgy caramel, candied cherry, peach and herbs like in a Turkish steambath. A sherry impact that is more present than the distillery profile and reminds me of 2004/2005 Tamdhus. 
    • Taste
      More spices. Caramel, marzipan, yellow raisin, apple and peach. The sherry is less dominant now.
    • Finish
      Marzipan, apple. spice and caramel upfront. What remains is mainly cherry.

    Very clean, not too complex but not boring. Everything fits together very well, the balance is right.
    • Nose
      Immediately ripe yellow fruit, mainly apples, after a short time comes to marzipan. Later butter and biscuit notes, then some mint, lemon balm and a herbal mixture, medically in the best sense. One should not wait too long, otherwise it will be very strong in the direction of fermented fruits and baby peas. Heated medicinal, more herbs, but also a lot of caramel and some ripe fruit again, is now very balanced and caressing.
    • Taste
      Rather mild in the onset, slightly oily, pepper develops slowly, while in the foreground is honey-sweetened fruit compote, mainly applesauce. Later also some grassy notes, herbs and umami.
    • Finish
      The finish is a beautiful, mild eucalyptus note, which is accompanied by some oak tannins, before it fades away and leaves a memory of honey. Medium.

    Dailuaine-Glenlivet 11 yo 2004/2016 (46%, Cadenhead, sherry wood, Small Batch)  Colour: gold. Nose: it does have this typical leathery start (that comes with one struck match), as well as roasted chestnuts and Corinth raisins, which gives a rather warm feeling. I really enjoy the malty meatiness too, and that’s not Marmitte! Rather ham and mint, or something similar. Excellent balance, as often with small batches (vs. single casks). Mouth: excellent, firm, rich. Spicy cake, cloves, cumin, green peppercorn, marmalade, Japanese crackers (the ones that have quite some soy sauce around), a little coffee, some grass… A lot of action in this wee baby that’s very fairly priced. Finish: long, a little mustardy, perhaps. In France we have a recipe called palette à la diable, which is some ham cooked in a sweetish mustard sauce. Comments: an excellent price, some very good and ‘typical’ whisky, we don’t need more, do we. SGP:462 - 87 points.
