    I wanted to test one of the Flora & Fauna series. That's where the Benrinnes stung my eye. I have not looked back.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Immediately come orange peels. The vanilla is dominated by the sherry scent. There are also malty notes. In the background I have some cinnamon.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Fresh and neutral, he delivers what the nose has promised. There are also hazelnuts in sherry coat.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium rather short but invites you to continue drinking. Relatively dry with oak but pleasant. Dangerous Everyday Dram.

  4. Schnappsdrossel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Good sherry whisky, which could be a bit more intense.

    Color: Burnished
    • Nose
      Reminds me of a brandy. Sweet and spicy, oak cabinet, boiled grape juice, yeasty olorosot, orange, woodruff, lime blossom. A hint of licorice. Raisins. Except for the oak, however, kept very discreet.
    • Taste
      Grape juice and oak cabinet. More sherry, oranges, cinnamon and hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      Rather short. Licorice, oak, dark chocolate.

  7. pianoman scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Dry sherry, hazelnut, tree bark. Behind it orange marmalade and some grated lemon zest. Reed.
    • Taste
      Dried fruit, a little honey, a trace of wax. Earth, rotten wood, a hint of ash.

  8. ctu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is very sherried, but on the taste oak and spices come nicely.
    • Nose
      Big sherry and malt. Vanilla, waxy fruits, orange peel and oak. Ginger and curry.
    • Taste
      Citruses, tannic oak, sherry and pepper. Lively acids.
    • Finish
      Medium, dry, spicy, oaky.
