  1. Gaija scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    [Quick festival note] It's similar to the 2008 (#3085) though the 2008 is better. I'd say it doesn't have any huge interest for people that are not 100% into dry oloroso. But for those who like these notes, why not. I'm not a fan of it, especially when it's so high in alcohol and when there's no big distillate character behind to support it.
    • Nose
      Young, light, evanescent, already with a bit of alcohol muting it, but besides that it's full on dry walnuts and dry oloroso in general. A bit of dry wood.
    • Taste
      Alcohol could be better integrated. Thin texture. Dry oloroso profile again with a lot of dry walnuts, dry wood, dry earth and cloves. Not an ounce of sugar or fruitiness, this is for those who like them dry.
    • Finish
      Gets a little rounder here.

    Second bottle of Benriach single cask bottling series.
    Surprised that there were light note on nosing but had quite heavy body note.
    Sweet and bitter note is dominant.
    Adding few water makes sweet note much better.
    One thing that's unfortunate is that the fruit note is weak.

    nose:
    walnuts and raisins soaked in alcohol on a slightly sweet liqueur, mold, caramel, it smells good of Oloroso
    stuffy:
    straight alcohol, peppery spices, the tannin of dried wet wood, the caramel cooked here
    it's a little oily, the nuts again, the fruit on the strawberry, raspberry, candied cherry
    dry wood
    final:
    on the wood chips, on the shell of the nut with its dried green envelope, cocoa arrives there, the bitter nut, quite long, but requires a starter or a few drops of water.

    Nose: A lot of sherry with a very creamy aroma and noticeable toffee. Some wood

    Taste: At the first attempt (without water) quite closed. However, after adding water, the aroma is very intense and strong. In addition, there is sweetness, quite creamy. In the background wood accents.

    Rating : 88 | 100 finish Quite long. A very good bottle for 11 years old whisky. Contrary to appearances, a lot of taste is going on in it.

  10. Apikalov scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    alcohol is very well integrated, with its strength, alcoholism quickly goes away. He definitely needs aeration, but moderate, 10 minutes and the drink breathes deeply. Whisky with a very dry profile in taste and finish, fully consistent with oloros barrel. Without water, it seemed more complex.
    • Nose
      young and slightly alcoholic. Dry, closed, dominant red berries, clearly raspberries.
      After a rest, distinct caramel, fudge, sweets with liquor. Virtuosity disappears completely in 10 minutes.
    • Taste
      buttery, medium sweet. Dry tree, walnuts, raspberries, chocolate, liquor notes.
    • Finish
      medium dry. Wood, liquor notes. Distinctly partitioned walnuts.
