Review #927 (2023)

By Wilson & Morgan comes this Barrel Selection with a Oloroso Sherry finish. It’s a limited edition, and the cask numbers are 302661/64/69/73/79/80. Very fresh in the smell. Dried apricots, sultanas and white fruits – especially pear – in the background. Light citrus and just a wee hint of hay.

The influence from the Oloroso Sherry cask maturation is really coming forward in the taste. Dried fruits, oak and tannins. The finish is dry, with some spices coming forward.

A quite funny Dailuaine – first it doesn’t seem very influenced by the Oloroso, but then, when you taste it, flavours come rushing in. But it’s like the heavy Oloroso flavours don’t continue to the finish. Still delicious though! I will give this 85/100 (21/22/21/21).
