  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Very good Benriach, more focused on the barrel than on the distillate. The exotic comes in the final and really does honor to the dram.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very nicely fruity nose. Here we are more on the sherry cask than on the "usual" tropical fruits.
      Plum, prune, overripe cherry, milk chocolate, cinnamon. Leather, raisin. Brazil nut.
      Rather dry wood.
      In the end rather classic, but well balanced and flawless.
    • Taste
      90 90
      In the mouth we continue in the same vein, with a little more tertiary aromas.
      The fruit is there but has turned black.
      Leather, shoe polish, grease. Old engine and old oil.
      Light metallic and dusty side.
      Toasted wood, liquid caramel, milk chocolate.
      A small layer of earth and undergrowth.
      Always dried fruits, hazelnuts, walnuts.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long finish on wood, molasses, cane sugar, liquorice and anise. Blackberry and cherry ...
      ... and a touch of exoticism, on mango and pineapple.

    As expected the tropicality is a bit taken over by the sherry but that works really well for me, really good

    BenRiach 1976-10 / 2012 36yo OB for TWA 70cl 49.6% Sherry Hogshead # 963 Bottle No. 88/132 This is no longer too many releases, I think we want you to change the label design for each work BenRiach 1976! After all, I noticed which work was in the label design, so I'll drink it if I have you! Color: It is a tea bag tea bag, tea bag, tea bag, tea bag, barley tea, roasted tea.This devastated gloss is unbearable Nose: The fragrance preeminent of the old rubber band's snug feel.The old corridor Dirty nuance that springs up the tree Attack: Smoke after drinking after school Smokey of grilled beaks. "Furano Wagyu Beef Bento" that you get in the unique flavor of the last train of express Okhotsk, while having the gloss and refreshingness of asparagus and wakasagi. Of course, now that tunnel construction and road construction was done, now to the lost people That's a salutation! The odor of the car with the old annual ring of rubber connecting the express Okhotsk car Odor with the age above the tire Body: Bandamweight, but the weight and destructive power of the punch as if the stone was in the glove ... As if as the masterpiece In boxing manga's "Ashita no Joe", I feel a strange weight, like when Joe hid a stone in the globe, before the stone comes from Toko Kokusai Higher Juvenile training school Taste: Juwatu It is a smoky feeling.Sawananish sour nuance.An interesting feeling of the adhesive system dancing on fluffy sweetness which made Aron Alpha on a cream puff.The alcoholic feeling is exactly as if meat, fish, pickles in Zippo lighter As BenRiach seemed to have grown, as for BenRiach, the taste of the fingers got a sense of taste. After having eaten a crispy cutlet on the bushes of Nakasu, let's remind us of this unfamiliar tea after eating Hawashan It will Fiinish:. Flour rice cake such as lie! Sugar to play! It is better to say sugar, sweet taste of Japanese, honey squall will splendfully splendidly! Hot milk with honey! Well, drinking fatigue phenomenon can happen, but what is it, BenRiach is irresistible? ! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsyxuwaj7

    Tasting Notes by WN.be (scored 91/100) :

    Nose: Very fruity, although indeed it shows dried fruits rather than the legendary tropical fruitiness. Juicy raisins, damson plums, and mixed berry jams (blueberry, redcurrant, raspberry). Beautiful sherry elements like leather and nuts as well. Cinnamon. Elegant oak polish to round it off.

    Mouth: Very fruity again (oranges, cherries, hints of pink grapefruit). If you pay attention, the tropical fruitiness is still there, but it is behind a more upfront layer of sherry. Some toasted oak, within limits. A little coffee and herbs. Christmas cake. Dark chocolate.

    Finish: Maybe not the longest finish, but nicely balanced between dried fruits and oak spices.
