Whisky Reviews for Banff 1976 HSJ
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points
- For me a very nice catchy whisky. Green, Woody, flower and citrusy. At the end definnetely Lemon candy.
- The nose is a little unpleasant, but the mouth catches up well.
It's quite sweet, complex, and quite typical Banff.
Very astringent nose. Green wood, alcohol to burn.
Spices, pepper, ginger.
Green apple, white flower.
Grass in the rain.
A bit of wax.
It is unfortunately a little burned mouth.
In the mouth it is a little more fruity, on the apple, apricot and dried orange peel.
Wax always present. Fresh mint.
Finale on lemon candy, licorice and wood. Bitter dark chocolate. Camphor. Light leather.
- Nose: restrained, then sweet, bright fruits, a beautiful oak note, somehow "green", freshly mown grass.
Mouth: Sweet, very strong, floral, an interesting, slightly musty wood note, a very small amount of peat.
Finish: a little peat, astringent, the oak has that say. A few bright fruits also end, followed by peat.
Conclusion: Interesting whisky, the wood note is very special and certainly not everyone's taste. But a nice old-fashioned Speysider
