Dailuaine 7yr Provenance (Douglas Laing)
This Dailuaine 7 year old Provenance was part of the Sippin Speyside Facebook tasting by the guys at Douglas Laing
I've had a few Dailuaine bottlings in the past, it's generally such a lovely dram with light fresh fruit, I'm really quite excited to try it.
This is lovely, I really wasn't expecting the mocha/coffee and chocolate notes, this is seriously drinkable stuff, tasty fruity, chocolatey and slightly drying, very tasty stuff.

Thanks to www.douglaslaing.com for including me on the tasting.
Quite rich and fruity and really in your face for such a light coloured dram, it's got that spiced tinned fruit salad note that I like from many speysiders, spices and hints of balsamic vinegar, quite tangy and it's smells like it could be quite drying.
There's almost a light coffee / mocha note to it at first which goes creamy milk chocolate and then some sweet juicy fruit, tinned pears especially, in a whipped chocolate mousse.
Sweet juicy, bitter dark chocolate, light cappuccino, slightly drying
