Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Berry Bros & Rudd 70cl / 53.2%
A 13-year-old Dailuaine 2009 single cask bottled in late 2022 without colouring or chill filtration by indie heroes Berry Bros & Rudd for their Winter 2022 outturn.
This Dailuaine 2009 13-year-old came from Cask 315727, a hogshead cask that yielded 278 bottles at its natural cask strength of 53.2%. Word has it that this Dailuaine has a particularly pleasing hefty texture, so if you're looking for a chunky, no-nonsense Speyside dram this should be perfect.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: This chunky Speyside wades out of the glass, offering notes of waxy honeycomb, fruit-salad chews and a pleasing floral note.
Palate: The palate continues this theme, with added vibrant green fruit: Granny Smiths and pear drops, as well as dried barley, cigar papers and some beautiful waxy notes - immensely complex for a dram of this age.
Finish: More fresh fruits linger on the palate, as well as a touch of spice. This is further evidence that Dailuaine is surely one of Scotland’s best lesser-known distilleries.
