  3. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Excellent old Benrinnes, the base is fairly flattened and polished over decades of aging, but clearly tangible, whisky is whole, perfectly balanced, deep, with a wide palette of derivatives, 30 years have passed for a good reason, ideal for long leisurely tasting.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, spicy wood - a box for cigars, old furniture; roasted nuts, carpentry workshop, thinner, wood glue, wood stain, dried herbs, dusty dried fruits, burnt caramel, burnt jam, cotton candy, mineral and sulfur notes break through in development, radishes, Bengal lights, gunpowder, very deep, semi-tone .
    • Taste
      Rich, calm, sweet, dried fruits, prunes, kvass wort, spicy oak, red oranges, caramel, cola, a little ginger candied fruits, oriental sweets, sharp sulfur and mineral-metal notes in the background, burnt matches.
    • Finish
      Soft, slightly spicy, cinnamon, cardamom, sweet pastry notes, baklava, prunes, metallic sourness, black coffee, cola, exploding candies, light sulfur-mineral shades, velvet beer, licorice candies.
