The 16 year old Flora and Fauna has always been a favourite of mine.The nose is rich and smokey and the first sip of neat liquor releases a real depth of taste...almost fruity.I prefer to drink sensible proofs neat but with a water chaser.

This is a great malt for those that like a kick in the mouth. Its full on, sweet, thick and dripping with flavor.If you like mortlach 16yr, Dalmore 15 and some of the older Glenfarclas you will probably like elements of this whisky.
Ive tasted 115 scottish single malts so far and this is my favorite!
But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so try yourself!

The comments on this page aren’t great. The whisky is wonderfully rich. Great complexities. Very fruity and worth a try.

great to have with a pipe after too much beer

Rather strong and imbalanced single malt. The nose is overwhelming. The taste is grossly syrupy. The finish is very watery and flat. The addition of water does not change this single malt which is flawed. To be forgotten.

Hey P. I never said that ive not drank it. I meerly pointed out that ive just bought a bottle of dailuaine. Thats why i decided to buy another bottle as i liked the first one. I mentioned about finishing the Aberlour one first. And further more i do not know JW Black so no influence from him. By the way it sounds like you were the one influenced.

Why bother leaving a review if you haven't tried it?For my money I'd say a great malt with wonderful elements - big rich fruit, cedar, and wood smoke - but the more subtle elements are unfortunately lost under the wave of dense over-ripe fruit. Still, more intense than then most speysides and a malt most only try via it's influence in JW Black.

One of those whiskys that really benefits from some water. Great depth of flavour, and a long smoky finish, without being overpowering.84/100

Just bought a bottle and keep putting it off. Im going to finnish my 16yr old aberlour first before tackling this one. should be worth the wait.

Lovely taste. Rich in the mouth with a very nice smoky twang in the end.
