  1. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruity, soft, sweet. Apple, peach, melon, a lot of citrus, wood, grass.
    • Taste
      Lots and intense apple, mandarin, peach, melon. Strong white wine association. Wood (ginger, dry, anise / fennel, chamomile, herbal tea). A bit sharp.
    • Finish
      Fairly long, tasty, could be a bit fuller.

    This Benrinnes is not good for me. Seems under 18 to me. Quite grainy and somehow a youthful acidity that I don't like that much. You can drink it, I don't need it again.

    Unfortunately a letdown. The nose is still quite nice, but the alcohol is extremely poorly integrated and the bitterness masks all aromas.

    Same cask as: https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/150788/benrinnes-2001-jw

    Tasted from a sample. Interesting, at first it didn't seem that exciting. When the dram sat in the glass a little longer, it opened. Too bad we only had a sample.

    Warming and tasty dram. Clean and destilate driven. Very nice!
