Dailuaine SMWS 41.83 “Sherry, Sherry Baby”

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me this sample. Dailuaine. I have a theory. It’s not popular because you can’t order it drunk. Heck you can’t order it sober unless you understand Gaelic, and that leaves very few people in the world able to do so. I feel bad for anyone whose first language isn’t at least somewhat related to Gaelic trying to order it. Probably ends up… Continue reading Dailuaine SMWS 41.83 “Sherry, Sherry Baby”

Dailuaine SMWS 41.81 “Unravel the mystery”

Thanks to /u/xreekinghavocx for pouring me this sample. I’ve written about Dailuaine twice before, as I’ve only had two whiskies from them before today.

Poker night. An evocative image of people sitting around in a smoke filled room. Usually it’s all men, however I’m used to… Continue reading Dailuaine SMWS 41.78 “Poker night whisky”

Dailuaine 15 1997 Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Thanks to /u/whisky_lads [+13] for the sample. Rare is it that I find a distillery that I’ve never had. The reason isn’t because I’ve had so many: More so the reason is because I’ve had so many of the ones that have OB or aren’t owned by Diageo/Pernod that are used for blends. Well, blends and the odd IB that pops up to say hello.… Continue reading Dailuaine 15 1997 Single Cask (Master of Malt)
