  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Smoky, grassy, oaky, nutty, and on vanilla.
    Taste:
    Rough, oaky, fruity, on toffee, fudge, vanilla and with some cardboard. The
    finish is medium, grassy, on toffee and fudge.
    General Impression: A correct
    Benriach, sweet and on toffee, but with the fruitiness not fully developed.

    I rated it in direct comparison with Glenfarclas. BenRiach is definitely more distinctive, but also sharper, Glenfarclas is more sweet, but they have a lot to do with it. BenRiach has something of the Glanfarclas compared to the Chieftains, as well as the sharp Dalmore 1994. If you like this style, you'll be happy. I admit that after the first tasting I was slightly embarrassed, but I gradually came to taste and it is finally a beautiful score.
    • Nose
      Without water very dense, chocolate, unpeeled almonds, all with a sharp veil of alcohol.
      With water, it opens up, it is softer, it is easy to make it, so sweetly the varnish style I love.
      Overall very pronounced.
    • Taste
      The flavor has a very sharp impression, and I would guess it more than 54.7% of alcohol, she reminded me of Dalmore 1994 from Chieftains.
      Strong bitter chocolate, dry sherry style, wood.
