Dailuaine 27 Year Old 1983 – Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Dailuaine 27 Bottling Note

A beautiful Speyside malt which we bottled on the 14th July 2011. This was distilled at Dailuaine on the 2nd November 1983, and it was aged for 27 years in a refill sherry hogshead, which had an outturn of just 231 bottles. This is one of the sweetest sherried Speyside malts of this age that we’ve ever tasted – it’s really quite something. It was even awarded a Silver medal at the 2011 Malt Maniacs awards!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lots of musty ginger spice and a hint of motor oil, which meld beautifully with classic old Speyside malt and honey on buttered burnt toast.

Palate: Oily and very spicy. This oozes complexity and sweetness, with a big hit of honeycomb, gingerbread and Golden Syrup. Also, stunning notes of barley and a hint of something vaguely dessert wine-like. There is a gorgeous development of oak that appears with hints of vanilla, and rum and raisin.

Finish: More ginger and syrup, something akin to cookie dough with a hint of ice wine on the tail.

Overall: So decadent; one of the sweetest sherry-casked Speyside malts of this age that we’ve ever tried. Glorious!

Mom bottlings

I just love your bottlings. Beautiful complex dram. Last time i had 1980 Caol ila single cask - wonderful again. Keep it up.

I loved it! (Gary @ Malthound)

Nose: Certainly nice and spicy, not sure on the motor oil.

Palate: Oily is certainly the word here, with loads of hot spice that attacks the tongue. Followed by a mixture of sweetness and wood.

Finish: Love the sugar n’ spice!

Overall: I wasn’t really sure at first, but then had another sip (or three) and it grew on me. I loved it!
