Insider knowledge: Dailuaine 16 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Dailuaine 16 Year Old - Flora and Fauna whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Cereals, barley sugars, sherry. Fruitcake, oily, nutty.

Brought a bottle after a tour of the Talisker distillary oddly enough. completely differant flavour to my usual preferance, im very much into my Laphroaig.
But this was Very smooth, and VERY warm, and whilst the sherry essence and the fruit flavours are right there from the start, they are not overpowering. Quite possibly my second favourite malt, and not that pricey either.
