Whisky Reviews for Banff 1976 JM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.44 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Excellent, crystal clear and fresh, but at the same time sustained and qualitatively choked with a mole, perfectly balanced, bright and distinctive character, good work with the fortress - everything is very tight and saturated, but thoughts do not arise about 57% when tasting - gently and roundly, very friendly to the tasting.
    • Nose
      Open, saturated, salty, mineral, dry, wood, light notes of peat, lemon peel, light flower-honey tones, caramel, dry grain, malt, old leather, a little dried fruit, weak lacquer and carpenter motifs, pipe tobacco
    • Taste
      Saturated, citrus-fruit with oak bitterness, lemons, oranges, tangerines, apples and pears, light brackish, quite strongly choked, but at the same time surprisingly fresh and transparent.
    • Finish
      Spicy, oak, slightly astringent, sour-bitter-sweet, very clean, fresh, lemon peel, red apples, pomelo, cowberry, black currant jam, a few tropical fruits - banana, feijoa;
