Whisky Reviews for Ben Bracken 1987 Cd

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.96 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    with water: no, it is rather weak on the chest

    Conclusion: beautiful and well-matured malt, the pear with the subtle sherry notes is fun, but nothing outstanding, especially not 30 years of barrel aging, and the complexity is missing. Because of the caraway note, I would have blindly guessed a Littlemill.
    • Nose
      Pear juice, pear peel, a few apples and subtle notes of sherry (raisins), some honey and powdered sugar, subtle oak, everything is very soft and round, but doesn't look like 30yo, blindly more like 15yo, in between a little caraway (Littlemill?)
    • Taste
      velvety, not as oily as expected, pear, flowery, honey, subtle sherry, cookie dough and nice oak spice
    • Finish
      medium length, cookie dough, vanilla, pear, some wood, liquorice

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A beautifully matured, old single malt at a very fair price!
    Not outstanding - but very good!
    Unfortunately colored!
    • Nose
      floral-fruity (ripe apples, peaches, even raisins), sherry (?), old oak;
    • Taste
      soft, voluminous, apple compote, peaches, sherry, honey, caramel, gingerbread, woody-spicy oak, bitter;
    • Finish
      long, soft, fruity, spicy aftertaste;
