  4. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    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.

  6. Whisky_Wolf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      very voluminoes, short pungent alcohol but otherwise well integrated, Bacon smoke, subtle dark fruit after a long breath, a hint of port, wood
    • Taste
      Start: tingling, powerfully pleasant, sweetness

      Body: dark port white, vigorous camp fire smoke, raisins
    • Finish
      Smoke becomes weaker, woody notes, creamy, soft, warm, light bitterness

  7. Sonett scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Nose of Sherry, peat and smoke
    • Taste
      Long warm taste of sherry fruits like Raisins dates and figs
    • Finish
      Medium long to long with growing influence of smoke

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    With a gentle and very dense character, it's the perfect companion for muddy or frosty days.
    • Nose
      Tender and rich scent of peat, spice and pepper. From the barrel of the port of whisky, he reached out a dense jam of marmalade, but without any trace of sweets.
    • Taste
      Massive taste of peat, wood, bitter chocolate, a little smoke, cloves, cinnamon and pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is really long, it is expected to be one of the smoky whiskys and belongs to them.

  9. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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.
     

  10. Lapsang Leaf scored this whisky 72 points Member Junior

    That this whisky 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.
