  1. DB1965 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice Benrinnes on Olorosovat. The high alcohol percentage invites you to experiment with water.

      Wonderfully complex, spicy, orange and raisins, dark chocolate, honey. The alcohol stings a little. This can be remedied by a few drops of water. The nose then becomes more fruity.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Honey, orange, toffee and raisins, nice and spicy. A few drops makes the whisky fruity, apple and pear.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long spicy finish, cloves, cinnamon.

      Dominant alcohol, a little too much for me. It opens well with water. Sweet red fruits, a little honey - still dominant alcohol - again juicy sherry notes. Becomes more pleasant.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Much more pleasant with water. Fruity again, sherry - but really fruity, oak despite the young age, maybe a hint of chocolate, not too sweet. Delicious!
    • Finish
      84 84
      Not so long, but pleasant, dried fruit, a little raisin. Definitely dry. There is still some burning alcohol on the tongue.
