Dailuaine 15 yo (1998/2013), Whisky in Leiden, 51,2 %

Review #323
This is bottled by Whiskysite.nl and comes from a Bourbon hogshead. It has casknumber 3394 and only 209 bottles were made. Lots of vanilla and marzipan is the first thing that hits my nose. Then tobacco leaves and caramel.

Again tobacco and sweetness in the taste. First the tobacco (and maybe leather) and then loads of sweetness. Burned caramel and tablet toffee. The finish is nice and long and just carries the taste all the way through to the end.

This is very different from other Dailuaine I have tasted. Not in a bad way though! I love this more rough style and the high ABV just make it so compact. Don´t be afraid of some water, it doesn’t change the whisky completely, but takes it down a notch and lets you enjoy the different flavors. I will rate this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
