Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 2008

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.33 points

  1. Numwierum scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Pleasantly sweet with strong smoke. The smoke tends to go into medical, damp wood. Honey, glucose, caramel, malt and some cinnamon. The alcohol is very well integrated, here tweaks nothing.

    Mouth: He starts very sweet and gentle in the mouth. Then his power becomes noticeable, smoke spreads. Again, caramel, vanilla and a hint of ginger. Something kräutrig and slightly dry.

    Finish: Nice and strong, long with light oak. Some herbs and smoke are left behind.

    What a cute smoker! Great how well the alcohol is involved here, which is 59.4% so it was not. Only 93 bottles gave this bottling, I would be interested in the reason why only so few bottles have become? Do you pick up the rest for the BenRiach Christmas party? A round about successful bottling!
