A single cask release from The Creative Whisky Company under "The Exclusive Malts" range.
A 10 year old offering from the lesser known Dailuaine distillery that has only a handfull official releases.
A Speyside malt with great charm and lends itself very well to Sherry cask maturation and one that deserves to have a higher profile.
Nose: Banana toffee, gingersnaps, fig confit, plum pudding with brandy butter, stewed plums and damsons, some walnut cake and dried fruit and nutty oloroso sherry wood notes.
Palate: A thick and dense (cakey) delivery with brown toast with thick cut blood orange marmalade, stewed red and black stoned fruit, nutty-praline-chestnut puree like notes, blackcurrant cordial, brandy butter and gingercake.
Finish: Coffee and walnut cake, black and dried fruits galore, baking spices and a lozenge like quality.
Really opens up with a drop of water, a really bold fruited/cakey offering from Dailuaine.
Aged in a single Sherry Hogshead that yielded just 307 bottles.
Distilled 13/11/2007 and bottled at natural cask strength 55.6% ABV.
