Kintra Whisky Dailuaine 21 yo

20 January 2014 745 views Written by: Gal Granov

It has been a while since I’ve tasted the last batch of Kintra. However, I was lucky enough to have met Erik Molenaar, the man behind the Kintra range at Maltstock last September where he had a wee stand pouring Kintra as well as other brands. I managed to sample a few Kintras I never got to try before, but took no real notes, as I was drinking quite a few drams that day (read : shitloads of whisky). This one I sampled at the comfort of my own home, giving it the attention it well deserves.

Kintra Whisky Dailuaine 21 yo , cask No. 3131, 48.9%,€ 92kintra_dal

Nose:  Fresh cut grass. Mint. Malt. Marzipan and wood. Very interesting nose. Even some cumin, and hints of melon .

Palate: Spicy. Earthy. Ripe orange. Coconut and spicy oak. Melon. Dried fruit and lots of pepper.

Finish: Pepper. Dried fruit. Earth. Melon.

What a lovely combination with the exotic spices, Melon and fruit, sugars and grassy nose. Just like a summer day cooking session. Brilliant. Lovely stuff, and although not cheap, it’s not too expensive.

Score: 89/100

Available from the Whisky Base web shop.

    Sounds lovely. And however you put it, € 92 for a 21 year old single cask is not expensive nowadays. I should keep better track of Kintra…

      Indeed. with today’s prices, it’s ok…
      one would think it should be popular in NL being bottled for a NL company… isn’t it?

        Kintra is popular/well known by the more experienced whisky lovers in NL (Eric is at almost every whiksy event…), but how many people buy bottles of whisky every week? Not that many…

        And for some reason, I buy almost all my whisky abroad. For some reason.
