Whisky Reviews for Banff 1966 BA

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2008]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 155 Euro in January, 2007. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  My notes state a truckload full of the darkest sherry that makes it hard to find the Banff whisky aromas buried under dozens of sherry-induced flavour layers.  But it is worthwhile to search for these as they combine very well with the heavy sherry aromas. 

    It is somewhat out of balance but who needs harmony when beauty is there anyhow... 

  2. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nice Banff with distillery character showing through the sherry at times. A bit of water helps bring the distillate to the foreground.
