Being the first official bottling in years, Dailuaine 34 Years Old Diageo Special Releases 1980, was definitely a pleasant surprise when Diageo announced it as part of their annual Special Releases in 2015. The coveted expression is even harder to find these days, but luckily we managed to snatch one up just for you! The whisky aged for 34 years in refill American oak casks, and is bottled at a natural cask strength of 50.9%. Dailuaine 34 Years Old Diageo Special Releases 1980, is a very rich and full-flavored dram; with aromas of ripe fruit, marzipan, citrus peel, gingerbread, smoke and chocolate on the nose. The palate has a smooth texture and well-balanced notes of chocolate orange, tropical fruit, leather, tobacco and almonds. The finish is long and fruity.
