The Spirit of Excellence


Dailuaine 14 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Distilled at The Dailuaine Distillery in May 2000. Bottled in Glasgow October 2014. Aged 14 years old in American oak. Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. Bottled at 55.1% Alcohol by volume.

The distillery was founded in 1852 by local farmer William Mackenzie and is situated one mile south of Aberlour in the village of Carron. Pronounced Dal-oo-ayn, meaning ‘green vale’ it was built in a hollow between the Ben Rinnes Mountain and the River Spey. It takes its water from the Baillemullich Burn. Dailuaine as is the nearby Cardhu Distillery is a major component of the Johnnie Walker blend.

A much under rated malt with a production capacity of 3.20 m litres of alcohol. It is surprising that less than 5% is bottled as a single malt.

This is a vigorous and charming single malt.
Sweet and aromatic. Some tasting notes suggest a hint of smoke. No way. Think more of the Italian liqueur Limoncello or lemon meringue pie.
A great after dinner drink.
