The Dailuaine distillery sits just north of Dufftown, producing fine scotch single malts for over 150 years. This 34-Year-Old bottle was released as a Special Edition in 2015 and is a truly exceptional tipple made for those who know and recognise superiority. It has a fruity, almost ginger tasting depth to the palate that lingers into leather-like, tobacco finish. There were 2,952 numbered edition bottles dispatched on the time of release, and as you would expect it isn’t generally easy to get your hands on one.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Pungent aromas from the start, with citrus zest & charcuterie. Bittersweet spice, dark moist fruit cake & gingerbread dominate with a faint clove spice & burnt cinnamon sugar in the distance.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Equally grand on mouthfeel, as the nose suggests. Rich malt, spice & now dried fruit cake coat the palate in a waxy fruitiness. Hints of pepper & chocolate coming later.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Magnificent balance between dry barrel char & sweet spices. Refined & indulgent.
