Expert Senior Dr.Nose Note

Dr.Nose gave this whisky 85 points

Delicious spicy (somewhat nutmeg) in combination with earthy tones (peat), but also some wood tones in the nose. The taste has a nice subtle spiciness, nice sweetness and again wood tones (dry and some bitterness).
The finish is medium, spicy and even some menthol.

HunterRomario gave this whisky 85 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Tězká a bohatá vůně rašeliny, koření a pepře. Ze sudu po portském si whisky natáhla hutné marmeládové tony, ale bez nějaké stopy po sladkosti.

Taste

Masivní chuť rašeliny,dřeva,hořké čokolády, trocha kouře, dál hřebíček,skořice a pepř.

Finish

Dokončení opravdu dlouhé, to se od tězce nakouřenych whisek očekává a patří k nim.

Comments

Svym tězkym a opravdu hutnym charakterem je to ideální společník do pošmournych nebo mrazivych dnů.

QuarterCentury gave this whisky 87 points

Having previously released single casks of port-finished peaty single malt, Benriach have now introduced Solstice, a 15yo small batch of the same. Described as heavily peated, the whiskies used for Solstice were aged first in ex-bourbon casks before a finishing period in aged tawny port pipes. Bottled without colouring or chill-filtration.

That this whiskey is doing rather well is nearly beyond me.
Salty cider on the nose, followed by smoked kippers and an unexpected spice.
Not a great balance.
