J├╝rgen Vromans, better known as the Whisky Mercenary, recently brought two new bottlings to the market. The first was the wonderful Clynelish 1997 for Beproefd.be and now this Dailuaine 1992. It will go on sale in November 2013. I believe it will be 95 EUR.

The first thing that stands out on the fruity nose is the enormous amount of varnish. I sometimes detect this on bourbon or auld grain whiskies as well. But it is far from disturbing, it is an asset! The fruit translates into loads of banana, peach and sour apples. Vanilla custard. Hints of cinnamon.

It has a powerful attack and fills the mouth completely. Creamy, almost syrupy. Wonderful. Loads of apple and lime, now. The citrus comes to the fore with big strides. White grapefruit. Mildly floral, too. Buttercups, wet grass just mowed. This is 21 years old? So alive. Some white pepper, ginger and midpalate a touch of oaky bitterness. This is good!

The long finish remains fruity and turns quite spicy, mostly on pepper and ginger. At the death, some pineapple comes out of nowhere.

Yes, this is the best Dailuaine I have tried so far (admittedly this is only my sixth). And perfectly quaffable without water. Available as of November 2013.
