Dailuaine 16 Year Old Single Malt 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 a nuttiness that you can sit and savour.

APPEARANCE

Rich amber; light mahogany.

BODY

Full, rich bodied.

NOSE

A deep nose. The immediate impression is of Cheddar cheese rind, backed by old Madeira. The after-dinner mode continues with walnuts and light butterscotch, but after a while, the whisky settles and becomes more orangey - old oranges, with hard peel and over-ripe inside. With water, the cheese rind becomes cheesecloth then damp muslin; the old orange becomes fresher, with some lemony notes - like a mixture of orange and lemon juice, then settles as candied peel. The nose is an interesting combination of freshness and maturity. Some sandalwood after a while, and light toffee, which increases over time.

PALATE

Straight, the whisky is full, sweet and warming. Reduced, the profile is similar. It retains its citric freshness, but with deeper currents, and a trace of Highland toffee.

FINISH

Warming, with a light nutty aftertaste.
