2009 Dailuaine 9 Year Old "Advance Sample By Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Ex-Bourbon Barrel Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (200ml) (Previously $30)

SKU #1636999

Dailuaine is a robust and characterful malt. At just 9 years old, this 200ml bottling from Old Malt Cask's Advance Sample line is mighty expressive. Very long fermentations and an attenuated copper contact result in a beefy spirit that provides much of the stuffing in Diageo's famous blends. It's so important, that Diageo rarely releases Dailuaine as a single malt. Fortunatley for us, it's a relatively easy dram to get on the independent bottling market as many distilleries and bottlers will trade their own stocks to get a hold of Dailuaine. As such, we can be picky about the casks we pick up. Here we have a beautiful Bourbon Barrel aged expression that has gorgeous malt up front on the nose and tons of weight and texture on the palate. A faint earthiness is found in all that power that seems a bit like peat but with no smoke to be found. Bottled at 50% ABV without color or chill filtration.

To my knowledge we've never bottled a cask in 200mls. These "Advance Sample" bottlings by Old Malt Cask were actually bottled in 2019 and for one reason or another were never collected by the original customer. On our last visit in February of 2022, we had the opportunity to try them as OMC decided they needed to be moved along. After tasting, we happily cleared out the lot. The Dailuaine 9 year is a lovely Bourbon barrel with its attendant sweet vanilla notes, but the star is really the malt itself - rich, meaty, earthy, and yet not lacking for fruit and sweet cereal notes. Citrus and savor dominate the nose with an added complication of fresh pine needles. The palate is sweet and smooth but is balanced supremely by a rich savory broth like umami. It's a lot of whisky for a 9 year old and a really fun addition to anyone's collection who appreciates a spirit forward malt.
