A 15-year-old Dailuaine bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
This is Batch 2 from the distillery, bottled at 47.5% with 950 bottles in the run.
A gritty, meaty, malty distillery that largely only enjoys the limelight of single malt status through independent bottlers.
Nose: Meaty at first, with leafy hints and molasses developing later on.
Palate: Barley sweetness, juxtaposed intense oak spiciness.
Finish: Lingering red berry and cinnamon.
"The Dailuaine distillery lives up in the Speyside region, and has done since 1852. It was home to Scotland’s first pagoda roof, an architectural element used by quite a few Scotch whisky distilleries over the course of history. Sadly, the Dailuaine pagoda roof burnt down in the early 1900s, which did stop production for a short while, but soon enough they were back to it!
"Interesting to note that until recently, some of the condensers at the Dailuaine distillery were made from stainless steel instead of copper. which resulted in their single malt having a touch of sulphur to it - some people are well into that, some aren’t. Our Dailuaine label features a pair of sulphur molecules, one seems to be nice and the other seems to be some sort of terrible nightmare creature from the netherworld. Steer clear of that one."
