Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Big-hitting aromas of currants, citrus and cured meat. Dense, dark, overdone gingerbread with bittersweet spices – musky clove, burnt cinnamon sugar – and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

    Palate: Full on but still fresh. Sweet and clean candied orange, orange-glazed ham, dark chocolate and a refreshing tang of zingy grapefruit. Chocolate-dipped oranges served in a cigar-box factory, with a meaty, leathery note on the side.

    Finish: Superb balance between dry barrel char and sweet spices. Classy and alluring.

    Comment: A big-hearted dram but still enough complexity and precision to reward slow contemplation.

    Man, I just love this. First Dailuaine I have ever tried and I'm in love. Serge is bang on with his tasting notes.

    Bold whisky with a big fruity Speyside character and fruity. Well worth the price.

    Stunning! The best special release. Heavy thick creamy oily honeyed dram. Great to see it still available on TWE. If you like oily honeyed fruity drams then go for it.
