|Title||Daftmill 2007 15 Year Old Fife Strength|
|Age||15 Years Old|
|Cask Type||1st fill ex-Bourbon|
|Number of Bottles|
The malt used to make this whisky is from the barley variety Optic. A variety that went on to become the mainstay for the Scotch whisky industry for several years..
The thirteen casks in this bottling are all first fill ex bourbon barrels distilled in January or August 2007. They were matured in the upper level of the warehouse before being bottled in July 2023 at the traditional Fife strength.
Nose: the richness of a slightly more mature age is apparent, with more biscuity sweetness, tiny waxy notes and a more complex herbal profile that involves bay leaf, lemon thyme and verbena. There’s also further richer notes such as chamois leather and grassy olive oil. Water reveals more notes of lemon oils, slightly medicinal influences and pine sap.
Palate: grassy and waxy with many impressions of old school shilling ales, barley extract and mineral oils. A good deal fatter in texture than younger Daftmills and showing more rich and spicy wood influence. With water it is once again more herbal, more oily in texture and still on sweet beers, toffee apple and wood spices.
Finish: good length, nicely sappy, spicy, herbal and oily.
