    Starts ok on the nose but goes downhill from there.

  2. ottos scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Not very good. I feared this would be weak at only 40% vol and evaporation from the bottle, but the ABV does not seem to be the problem. Pretty disappointing. 
    • Nose
      Apricots, vanilla, varnish. Has a slight perfumy character to it.
    • Taste
      Despite being only 40% and a my miniature having lost quite some angel's share, this has some serious bite to it.  Not a big mouthfeel but a sharp attack. It's fruity, but candy-like (winegums).
    • Finish
      Pretty long, but rather woody and very sharp/burning. Rather unpleasant.

    Nothing special going on here. This can be a good refreshing summer drink, light and perfumed. Nose is ok, but the palate doesn't develop the desirable CC series complexity. Still can be found for a great price, but i would suggest getting a different bottling instead of this one if you are looking to spend some money on a Benriach from G&M.
