Whisky Reviews for Benrinnes 1975 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Smoked nose with a small meaty side and a mixture of ripe fruits. Bitter mouth, aqueous texture. Finale on a pleasant drying smoke. Good but too much bitterness seriously reduces the overall appreciation of this whisky.

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Dark amber.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Sweet vanilla notes, a defined almond/marzipan nose. A pronounced

    Sherry influence emerges - Christmas cake.

    Palate: Christmas cake influences - dried fruits (dates/raisins), hints of rich

    dark chocolate and some gentle wood.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Initial sherried edge, some dried fruit notes, sweet and very fresh.

    Palate: Warming, with Sherry influences. Some delicate spices. Exotic fruits

    emerge and linger.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long and fruity.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry butt.

    Whisky Style: After dinner malt.

    the nose is beautiful, unfortunately the taste could'nt fulfill my expectations.
    • Nose
      without water:
      old books, furniture polish, figs on caramellsauce, interesting contrast of fresh fruits to a overall more dusty impression, citrus cleaner, nectarines, dark honey, some distant smoke.

      with water:
      younger with more sherry notes, salt, hazelnuts and herbs.
    • Taste
      without water:
      burned fruitcake, some sherry, toffee, wood influence - a touch of bitterness, dried fruits in the background and again wee smoke notes.

      with water:
      adds a sweet mango.
    • Finish
      without water:
      medium with some smoke. that's it? yep, that's it.

      with water:
      way better with walnuts, a hint of smoke again, old walnuts and drier.
