Nose

Nez très exotique, poivré et sur les fleurs blanches.

Taste

Vineux en bouche. On décèle un peu de camphre.

Les fruits exotiques sont toujours présents et délicieux: principalement du fruit de la passion et l'ananas.
Finish

La finale est longue et douche, vineuse et un peu épicée.

Comments

Très doux et bien intégré : très réussi.

Colour: Old gold.

Nose: Very smooth and fruity, fresh, quite light, on pollen, with discreet peaty notes.

Taste: Oaky, very fruity, slightly smoky, on guava, passion fruits, melon, canned pineapples and some wet tobacco leaves, with some pink grapefruit. The finish is long, fruity, slightly citric and peaty, on pineapples, with some coconut and grapefruit.

General Impression: Simply an excellent BenrRiach, more smoky and balanced than cask 3558.

Single dram note. Coepenicker Whisky Herbst 2012

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
