    Benriach 34y 1977/2011, 45.7%, DB for Asta Morris, refill bourbon # 9119, 175 bottles
    This is more subtle in terms of nose than the 1978. Lighter, more complex too. Like the 1978, it is sweet and fruity, on juicy apples and pears, but also mandarin and banana. Vanilla rather than the syrup. Soft milk chocolate. Then there is something light grassy and spicy: heather, hay, cinnamon and thyme. Very nice underlying oak. Creamy and firm mouthfeel, slightly tingling on white fruit, grapefruit and mandarin. Honey, dried grass, marzipan, soft oak and herbs. Something from Mandarin Napoleon. Magnificent. Very exciting whisky, elegant and complex. Pretty long, warming aftertaste. On the nose different from the 1978 (in terms of profile rather towards the 1975) but certainly as beautiful, the taste goes for me about the 1978, and so a point more. Yes, Bert knows what is tasty. And this is much more than tasty. 93/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/10/28/benriach-34y-1977-for-asta-morris/
