Whisky Reviews for Dailuaine 2008 McG

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.67 points

  1. praisethepasta scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    a very well aged young sherried scotch that has far more character and complexity than you would give it credit for based on its young age.  it reminded me a bit of Ben Nevis 10 (and that's a big compliment), but it's less malty and has more fresh fruit. A well deserved 85 - 86 /100
    • Nose
      sherry; ripe berries and cherries, with vanilla, citrus and chocolate in the background. with some added water the red and citrus fruit become more crisp, more fresh and active.
    • Taste
      More chocolate-y notes, dried red fruits (raisins and sultanas), cereal/grainy
    • Finish
      a rather long and dry finish that turns around and dies with a pleasant  syrupy note

    An absolutely beautiful whisky from a distillery that deserves more praise and acknowledgement!
