    : I have to say with the Stronachie, Benrinnes and AD Rattray have brought a wonderful malt onto the market. It is not exceptional or particularly stands out, but it is a very pleasant whisky that has a very good price.

      It starts with notes of bread rolls and toasted grain. Immediately afterwards, fruity notes of bananas and pears follow. A slightly grassy note can also be seen. A constant companion on the nose is a pleasant note of vanilla. The whisky is very pleasant and balanced.

      : A malty and sweet note like that of malt beer is the first thing you notice. Like honey in the mouth, the sweetness stays on the palate for a long time. Fruit notes of apricots come next. The whole thing is complemented by a peppery spiciness at the end. It is a nice strong drop with a very nice sweetness.

      In the finish there are citrus notes and honey that linger on the palate for a long time.

    I enjoyed the second half of this bottle more than the first. Maybe i had to get used to the pepper in the taste first, given that is was my first Benrinnes. But i got to enjoy this older style whisky quite a bit, so much that i am now looking for different versions of Benrinnes. I liked the graininess and mouthfeel a lot.
