Whisky Reviews for Ben Bracken Highland Cd

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 65.76 points

  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 62 points Connoisseur

    A very young and, at best, average whisky; the price (3,15 € (5 cl in a set of 3)) completely ok;
    • Nose
      62 62
      flowery, fruity (nectarine) and sweet, vanilla;
    • Taste
      63 63
      soft onset, fruity, slightly watery, "thin", light fruit, sweetness, malt, vanilla, clear youth, little depth;
    • Finish
      62 62
      sweet and short, in the end some wood;

  2. Syleo scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    As a polished gold with a copper engraving, the Highlander takes the nosing a little sweeter and heavier than the Ben Bracken Speyside. Forest honey, some wood and resin, the roughly sliced orange jam with a hint of citrus, before permanently warm apple compote with neat raisins, cloves and then - holla - a very intense note of cocoa powder that turns into hot chocolate with cream.
    The sweetness remains in the mouth with maple syrup and, this time, cooled cocoa, a full glass of pear juice as well as tart aromas of wood, nut and orange peel. Again, the finish remains short and light, leaving chocolate, pears and some oak.

  4. marmeladow scored this whisky 69 points Expert Senior

    Needs some air in the glass (approx. 10 minutes): then characteristic Highlander with herbal floral, fruit and sweetness and some spice, young and simple.
    For the price ok, but below average - would not be worth the money for a whole bottle.
    • Nose
      floral, fruity and sweet, vanilla, herbs
    • Taste
      Young, without any special features, hold some fruit and sweetness
    • Finish
      in short, sweetness with some oak flavor

  5. Jas0nGER scored this whisky 48 points Newbie

    Really nothing special in my opinion, very young without a concise note. Very soft in the finish, makes a warm gut feeling. But this is it.
    • Nose
      55 55
      primarily alcohol, some vanilla, orange and flowers
    • Taste
      50 50
      very thin, some fruits, nothing special
    • Finish
      40 40
      very soft, very flat without a concise note
