Dailuaine, one of Diageos core drams, is one that i tend to find myself going to fairly regularly when i see it by independant bottlers but i kept missing the 16 year old flora and fauna bottlings for some reason.

I like it when whisky companies have the balls (sorry I know that’s not entirely PC but it’s the best term for it) to put the age of a young whisky. Not many do it, mainly independents when they are or bottles like Kilchoman who did this for some time.
