Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 1969 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.32 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2012]  I had this dram during an "Old CC" tasting at Bonn.

    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 90.  My notes state a nice fruity profile on apricots.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    My score is for a 50ml mini of Benriach 1969 without an age statement. Similar brown label. 40%. It was stupendous. I don't simply give any whisky a 93 pt but this one deserves it. The best 40% whisky I've ever had. Thick and extremely fruity, and without that metallic, cardboardy, flat finish that a lot of these older brown labels have. Biggest discrepancy between overall WB score and my personal score. Not sure what happened here, but somehow, magic happened in the miniature that I tasted.
