Whisky Reviews for Benrinnes 1998 SS

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.62 points

  1. Malinois scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Added from the beginning some water, because of the style of the sherry. 

    On the nose it's just that adorable old school sherry, soft light sweet. The spirit comes trough but it's not to complex. The same on the pallet, which is a bit creamy and full with sweetness after a while. The spirit is there. The finish is short on the sherry, the spirits works it way trough and afterward the sherry is back there.

    Not very complex, nothing special but just well build whisky! Great the sherry cask isn't as strong as nowadays.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant and invigorating fresh mole with a raisin dominant, a good balance and a touch; depth and saturation are consistent with age.
    • Nose
      Open, raw, raisin water, window putty, wood, stain, sweet creamy notes, dried fruits - raisins, dried apricots; a little burnt biscuits and leavened wort.
    • Taste
      Oak in raisin water, lemon zest, red orange, kvass notes, light beer, creamy sweetness - creamy cream, toffee;
    • Finish
      Raisins, ginger candied fruits, sweet-spiced oak, orange, a little kvass.
