    Had a lovely 1968 brown label CC Benromach that was exquisite. Unfortunately not the case here. Many factors may lead to a difference of opinion on these old minis, obviously this is the case with any whisky, but especially here. How were they stored? How much evaporation? Etc...

    My fill level was right at the top of the label. Not great, but it’s been many years, I’m not too upset. This one is a little rough and youthful. What’s certain is it definitely does not feel like 40%. My friend guessed blind 48%, and I agree. It’s insane how 40% is not what it once was...

    Very spicy. Obe in the form of sweaty wool socks, a little body odor... definitely some chilis, youthful pepper attack. The palate is the best part by a mile. Some interesting honey, melons and waxes...then the finish again harsh, and oaky. Interesting to try, but not a winner for me.

    • Nose
      Pure hay and candle wax.
    • Taste
      Very little spices and almost like drinking water. I can't give any points today before I tried another Benrinnes from them years because I think the quality of this miniature was perhaps not 100% anymore after all them years.
