Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 2013 GtDr

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.33 points

  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 74 points Member Senior

    Benriach 5 year old (Great Drams) 46.2%. Single cask 2013. 213 bottles produced. Aroma is mega banana toffee. Banana bread with toffee sauce. Quite sweet. Slight coffee notes. Taste is light, oily, paraffin, super unique, midway between new make and a solid whisky with intriguing aspects of both. Hard to rate. Tastes unfinished yet rounded. Tastes like it's not yet a proper whisky but is instead a good example of whatever intermediate product it is. Plasticky banana notes. I find this interesting. I am conflicted about how much I like it but I still think it probably has enough for a score of (3.1/74).

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A very clean tasting spirit where the complexity builds - a decent, rather than a great dram.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Quite dry on the nose with some herbal notes starting to come through.
    • Taste
      82 82
      A very clean tasting spirit - very light in taste with some dry sweetness at first, followed by a hint of spice.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish carries on long after swallowing - the taste becomes more complex the longer it lingers.
