Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 1981 GM

  1. tebond968 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Benriach 23y 1981/2004, 43%, G & M Connoisseurs Choice, refill sherry - Speyside - 78/100
    Nice fruit in the nose. It is true that it is not as tasty and much as we find Benriachs in the seventies, but still. Vanilla. Butter milk. Nuts. Light smoke. In the taste we have flowers, infusion tea (not immediately an idea which), kiwi and light peat. Sloeber whisky. Previously short, disappointing finish. Unfortunately the end, so he misses the cape of the 80 points. http://onversneden.com/2009/03/15/een-troep-speysiders/

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Nose: The sherry influences combined with the floral influences, makes it very perfumy, but nice!

    Palate: the sweetnes, with some dried fruit and vanilins gave this dram sweetness, however de floral spicyness was there.

    Finish: fresh and yet warming with an oaky floral aftertaste.
