Whisky Reviews for Benrinnes 2006 AD

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.83 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    So many of the heavily sherried whiskies I've tasted lately have been insanely intense and very dry. This Benrinnes is therefore a nice surprise.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, with loads of cherries and forest fruits, and even a hint of raspberry. But it also has a sweet side, mainly nougat and cotton candy. Everything is balanced by a hint of Wasa Whole Grain Crispbread and aceto balsamico.
    • Taste
      It has much more of a kick than I expected based on the nose, although nothing too extreme. Notes of leather and oak, as well as nutmeg, but also oatmeal cookies and dark chocolate. Even a touch of aniseed and bitter espresso.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering bitterness, with a touch of chocolate.

  3. jttoft did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Different sherry - same style as cask 305385.
    • Nose
      Subdued nose. Apples, mint. Slight raisin, but very little. Green herbs.
    • Taste
      Again subdued taste. Herbs, coffee, and sweet liquorice. Sweet chocolate.
    • Finish
      Same notes. Dry.
      Overall lacking fruit, depth, and intensity in my opinion.
      Brown sugar.
