Dailuaine 8 yo (2007/2016), James Eadie - SB, 46%

Review #711
This is from the “Small Batch” series and comes from 1st fill Bourbon barrels, with the numbers #312447 - 312450. 1373 bottles were made. White fruits, vanilla and citrus on the nose. A bit of marzipan and banana chips as well.

Some more sweetness comes forward in the taste. Candied apples and butter biscuits. Hints of oak mixes with the white fruits. The finish is even more sweet, and stays for quite a while.

This is a good example of what good casks can do in just few years. So much flavour, and incredible sweetness. However, it is not a top scorer and it is still young, but for the age, it is quite good if you like Bourbon matured whiskies. I will give this 84/100 (20/21/22/21).
