Dailuaine Flora & Fauna 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Pronounced "dal-u-ayn", many visitors to Speyside would be blissfully ignorant of the existence of this gem.
Built in 1865 the distillery was once part of the Dailuaine-Talisker Distilleries Co Ltd which owned the renowned Skye distillery and later went on to build Imperial. Dailuaine has seen several significant changes. A Dark Grains plant was commissioned to process pot ale and draff into a high protein cattle feed. The splendid granite double-storey dunnage cask warehouses lie empty, as all Dailuaine whisky is tankered away to be filled into casks at a central warehousing complex. Today this whisky forms a major part of Dewars blended whisky thanks to its robust flavours, but is also produced in smaller quantities as a single malt.
This is big, boisterous, and sherried, but there’s less of the gravy-browning elements you get from the other two; at Dailuaine it is fruit that is promoted alongside Seville orange, treacle, and the inevitable raisin and date. There are nods to PX sherry as well.
