Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 1985

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.56 points

  1. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A whisky with a journey, many layers and plenty of flavour.
    • Nose
      BBQ burning in the distance, a touch of chalk and dust. Sweet dessert note behind the smoke in the way of apple strudel and danish pastries.
      Dried bananas and cream.
    • Taste
      Big peaty and smoky arrival. Very earthy and grassy, a bonfire in the middle of the woods. Burning heather in the distance. A slight savoury note, again with the BBQ. Some honey sweetness, honey glazed char-siu.
      With time it develops apple juice, an unsweetened apple with a smoky edge.
    • Finish
      Long smoky, burnt wood chips and a long lasting dried banana note.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    On label: "Stewed pear and apple qualities line the palate, before a powerful peat infusion builds this into a gusty, yet elegant offering. Stunning weight and length."
