    Full bottle

    These Cadenhead Benrinnes...naked, in the buff, absent of fancy sherry clothes, which is the way nature intended. Hefty spirit, oily, characterful... I don’t think I’ve found a bad one. Another great one, this is. Drinks well at such a big abv, which is a great sign to me. I keep reaching for it. Guilt free, old school, crushable.

      Oranges, polish, fat spirit, marzipan. Big and bold, but accessible.

      Easy going for the abv. Creamy, fat and oily. Full and great mouthfeel. Very good here. Dunnage, bung cloth, Clementine, mandarin...I don’t generally love orange notes, but it really works here. Almost dusty or antiquey.

      Long, fruity, oily, orange polish, varnish, I hesitate to say wax, but a fatness for sure. Spice picks up, but in perfect balance. Really great.

      Lime peel, vanilla sugar, yeast dough, musty warehouse, citrus notes, extremely lively without stinging

      Yellow fruit, slightly brittle, effervescent tablets, creamy, sweet, pleasant oak flavor

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very rich and intense whisky, fresh, with a lot of sweet and fruity notes, and everything well balanced. Very enjoyable dram.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fresh and fruity, a lot of apples, some citrus, vanilla. Also a kind of fresh paint (not disturbing at all), very full scent.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Strong and powerful, pepper, pickering, intense. Sweet and fruity, orange, something peach-like, vanilla. Very full body.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Still strong and intense, sweet and fruity. Orange again, vanilla and honey. Some wood influence (oak) now, long finish.
