Dailuaine distillery lies tucked between the foot of Ben Rinnes and the river Spey. The name is taken from the gaelic ‘dail uaine’ meaning green valley, and it’s a title that sits well with the verdant, dew-fresh origins of this naturally fragrant Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

A complicated single malt whisky, full and sweet, yet also citric-fresh, that can impress mightily. An unusual combination of freshness and richness, this 16 year old single malt whisky has a sherried style with a sweetness and nuttiness that you can sit and savour.

Serving Suggestion:
Dailuaine works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.

Region Another well-kept Speyside secret.
Appearance Rich amber; light mahogany.
Body Full, rich bodied.
Nose Cheddar cheese rind, backed by old Madeira. After dinner mode continues with walnuts and light butterscotch. This settles and becomes more orangey.
Palate Straight, the whisky is full, sweet and warming.
Finish Warming, with a light nutty aftertaste.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

Barley, sherry and nuts on the substantial nose, developing into maple syrup. Medium-bodied, rich and malty in the mouth, with more sherry and nuts, plus ripe oranges, fruitcake, spice and a little smoke. The finish is lengthy and slightly oily, with almonds, cedar and slightly smoky oak.

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.99

Rich and full nose, with plum, apricot jam and some treacle toffee. The palate is very full, rich, rounded and sweet with apricot and red berries. The finish is medium, fruity and sweet.

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.99

This is big, boisterous, and sherried, but there’s less of the gravy-browning elements you get from the other two; at Dailuaine it is fruit that is promoted alongside Seville orange, treacle, and the inevitable raisin and date. There are nods to PX sherry as well. Every bit as good as Mortlach.
