Irish Single Malt, 14yo, 2000-2015, 51.5% – The Nectar of the Daily Drams

What I say:

Thanks to Sjoerd for sharing a sample of this intriguing Irish malt whiskey bottled by The Nectar (Belgian whisky importer and distributor) under their Daly Drams label.

Colour:

Soave wine gold (5/20), fine tears with long & fine legs

Nose:

Sweet and high notes initially, icing sugar, vanilla & honey, coconut, cream, custard cream biscuits, biscuit cereal barley, flour/milled barley, light lemon/lime cream or foam – sweetened, fruity apple & pear, elderflower blossom and menthol crystals

Taste:

Light & gentle, honeyed, apple & pear juice (clarified), biscuit malt, slightly dried grassy hay, floral and light elderflower blossom, vanilla cream, fresh and green coconut, fresh woody oak and menthol?

Finish:

Medium, pastries, key lime pie, floral, sweet, oak wood

Overall:

Slightly ascerbic and woody but beautifully light and ethereal elderflower, fruity and grassy – a lot like a good speyside scotch single malt.

Score: 85/100

Don’t take my word for it:
