Dailuaine 34 yo 1980/2015 (50.9%, OB, Special Release, 2952 bottles).
Nose: notes of beeswax, pollen, nectar and ‘delicate pinewood’. So plenty of honeyed notes, honeydew, pinesap, mead, overripe pears, then rather tangerines, a touch of cardamom, rosehip
With water: more towards Seville oranges, a little ginger, some polished wood, and cookies.
Mouth (neat): a touch of fizzy wood, with lime, pepper and ginger, then a honeyed development, rather around eucalyptus honey, and perhaps a drop of mojito. Really. The honey really coats all this.
With water: once again, water makes it spicier and rather less honeyed. Ratafia, orange cordial, ginger cookies.
Finish: medium, with spices and a return on sweet barley.
