  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Always great to know that there are distilleries with their own distinct style.
    • Nose
      Without a doubt there's a hit of struck matches to start things, as well as burnt caramel, but also orange peel. A hint of blackberries too, with a thin malty veneer. Pretty classic stuff.
    • Taste
      Slightly burnt and spicy (nutmeg, pepper), with roasted peanut skins and oranges as well. The sulphur makes an encore as well. A touch of cappuccino as well.
    • Finish
      Lingering pickled oranges and a whisper of smoke.

    I wanted to test one of the Flora & Fauna series. That's where the Benrinnes stung my eye. I have not looked back.
    • Nose

      Immediately come orange peels. The vanilla is dominated by the sherry scent. There are also malty notes. In the background I have some cinnamon.

      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.

  3. Joschbert scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An idiosyncratic and powerful malt. Maybe a bit inharmonious, but with a lot of character.
    • Nose
      86 86
      nice dirty flavors, slightly burnt gum, oranges, wild berries, spice mixture with cloves, leather
    • Taste
      86 86
      again slightly gummy, sweet and sour, fermented fruit, grapefruit, strong roasted nuts, caramel
    • Finish
      86 86
      slightly bitter oak, orange peel, in the background tobacco and roasted notes - medium long

  4. Murxus scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    notes of vegetable broth, but not unpleasant. Hint of smokiness. 85/86.

  5. Master Quill scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    L2 = 2002.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

      Orange, dark chocolate, almond, raisin, leather and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Orange, roasted almond, chocolate, marzipan, pepper, clove and mocha.
    • Finish
      Orange, marzipan, dark chocolate, coffee, baked potato and a whiff of smoke.
