Dailuaine is often sought but rarely found, so this 18 year old cask is something special. Dailuaine is more commonly found in sherry casks, so this maturation in a refill hogshead is already a bit unusual. The Dailuaine whisky inside is flexible – if kept in this hogshead, it will show off a lighter side to this traditionally rich whisky. It is also a perfect choice for re-racking into its natural partner of a sherry cask, or even something more experimental like port or red wine. Dailuaine is robust enough to take it.
Auction estimate: £17,000 – £19,000
