There aren't many bottlings from Dailuaine, distillery or independent, and this sticks out as even rarer due to it being one of the fabled Manager's drams - single casks chosen by the distillery managers and originally given to friends of the distillery.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Fresh and grassy, but quickly joined by a rich oiliness with brioche and rum-soaked sultanas. A pleasant sweetness in there – candied lemon peel, cinnamon, and bread dough.
The sherry-cask influence makes itself heard with an abundance of Christmas cake spices – cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, along with mixed fruit peel and Seville orange marmalade, but this is not a ‘heavy’ whisky – there is good poise and balance here, as well as a cleansing freshness from the spirit. A faintly toasty note, too, with some spiciness and sweetness from the cask.
Mouth-enveloping and warm, the aromatic spiciness lasts for some time, along with an appealing bready note and some fresh citrus.
For me, this definitely needs water to soften the prickle and to let the warm spiciness of this whisky gently unfurl, but when it does, it is very rewarding.
