Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Berry Brothers & Rudd 70cl / 46%
A 12-year-old Dailuaine 2010 bottled without colouring or chill filtration by the men in cords at St James institution Berry Bros & Rudd for their Autumn 2022 release.
This 2010 Dailuaine 12-year-old came from a small batch of hogshead casks that yielded just over 1000 bottles at an easy-drinking 46%. Dailuaine's big-boned spirit is always a treat and this looks like great value.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: The nose is a complex bouquet of fresh, summery, floral notes, paired with a thicker almost tannic, vanilla aroma - all suggestive of the powerful dram that awaits to be savoured.
Palate: The palate delivers waves of fresh fruit, dried pineapple, wood spice, barley sugars and beeswax shoe polish.
Incredibly expressive for a younger dram at 46%, Dailuaine is often overlooked for its more famous cousin Mortlach, but it has a similarly chunky texture which shows wonderfully in this dram.
