  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It seems that these mid-nineties Benrinnes become fruitier and more syrupy by the year. Again an excellent Archives bottling which perfectly suits my personal preference for multi-layered (oily) fruitiness in whisky. It reminds me of the Glenburgie 1995 Arc bottled in 2020. Very similar profile IMHO.
    • Nose
      Lots of juicy fruitiness of oranges, kumquat and mango for a start. Followed by sweet notes of ripe peach, papaya and kaki fruit. Hints of green oak and mint. Aniseed and candle-wax as well. Subtle mineral notes of wet stones and chalk at the background. Lovely!
    • Taste
      Thick, creamy and full-mouth textured fruit syrup with pineapple cubes, tangerines and pink grapefruit. Touch of caramel and cake-mix. Barley sugar. Marshmallows and Turkish Delight later on. It's all very warm and sweet, with a slight liqueur-like edge.
    • Finish
      Quite long and lingering. Candied apples and a little cinnamon. Pine at the end. Well-integrated Benrinnes.

    Was a little disappointed in this one. I bought one blind because I'm a fan of these 90s Benrinnes, but unfortunately I didn't quite love it as much as I was hoping. A little too sweet and syrupy
