Review #547 | /r/Scotch Review #195 – Dailuaine 9yr Single Barrel, Hepburn’s Choice (KL)
The Schtick: This is a K&L Single Barrel bottled by Hepburn’s Choice – their budget IB line.
Bottler: Hepburn’s Choice (KL)
ABV: 58.3% ABV
Age: 9 Years
Nose: Honey, caramel, toffee. Bakery sweets like donuts and cake icing. Walnuts. Faintly lactic.
Taste: Sweet honey, walnuts, medium thickness with little heat. Honey is super prominent overall, with lots of sweet werthers caramel notes. Actually, it’s a total caramel bomb. With some faint fruity lactic notes creeping around in the back.
Finish: Medium length, sort of sweet, sort of sulfuric. Tons of sweet toffee and caramel.
Overall: Overall, I like this, but it wasn’t terribly interesting. Mostly just a huge caramel bomb. Which is far from anything bad – I enjoyed it thoroughly despite it not being a wild ride.
Thanks for reading!
