Dailuaine 16 yo (2008), Flora & Fauna, 43 %

Review #322
This is from Diageos Flora & Fauna series. It is a bit sharp in the smell at first. Then very fresh with fresh fruits and floral notes. Then it changes and some black currant comes forward with some ripe plum.

The taste is very herbal at first. Slightly spicy, and then some dark berries comes forward. Dried plums as well if you can imagine that… The finish is compact at first, but becomes weak rather quickly.

I cant shake that feeling that this is a whisky that doesn’t quite know what it wants to be… I know a lot of people think this is heavily sherry influenced, but I think it also tries to be several other things. Herbals and spices mixes in, in a confusing way… I will give this 82/100 (20/21/20/21).
