Dailuaine distillery lies tucked between the foot of Ben Rinnes and the river Spey. The name is taken from the Gaelic 'dail uaine' meaning green valley, and it's a title that sits well with the verdant, dew-fresh origins of this naturally fragrant single malt Scotch Whiskey.
The nose is light and immediate, with citrus backed by rich, creamy toffee and grainy cereals. It is fragrant and herbal too, with a perfumed top note joined by more detailed maltiness, with barley sugar and subtle peat. On the palate it is smooth textured at full strength; sweet overall, with fresh acidity and a saltiness unusual in Dailuaine, which develops as a drying, cough-candy note deepening into dense and spicy dark chocolate-coated ginger.
