  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A mature, delicious single malt;

    [Color] bright white wine;
    • Nose
      fresh, floral, sweet (honey), distinct vanilla, pears, green apples;
    • Taste
      soft onset, lots of volume, fudge, caramel and vanilla, full-bodied, herbs, increasingly spicy;
    • Finish
      medium length, sweet and malty finish; in the finish oak;

    I like it for its sheer simplicity. It sure is a shy cask and the result is a clean and typical Dailuaine. Subtle tobacco and smoke within the vanilla and syrup. It is definitely not very complex, still very good and so Dailuainish!

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Quite, very strange. Did I have a Fehlsample or vllt. what was in the glass or sample? Had very unpleasant notes (and few).
    • Nose
      Decay in the nose, very own aroma if you can call it that, something of coconut, liquorice, stall, modder
    • Taste
      The liquorice again, quite bitter, a rotten bounty, dark chocolate and strangely spicy oak, I think that's no more
    • Finish
      Medium long, bitter, a little bit dry, malt, oak
