  2. GJR scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Small smoke over the entire width and depth of the palette. Best too spicy dram (a lot of pepper available). Also somewhat tannin. Dark fruity, slightly musty (in a more positive sense of the word). Pleasant.

    Serge says:

    Benriach 1997/2014 (46%, Gordon & MacPhail, Connoisseurs Choice, refill sherry hogshead)
    This for number crunchers, this baby was bottled on March 20, 2014.
    Colour: white wine. Nose: it’s a rather lovely, all-natural malty
    Speysider, with good custard, good overripe fruits, good hay, and good
    early grey tea. In other words, malt whisky as nature intended. Well,
    not too sure about that part. Mouth: shortbread, orange juice, barley
    water, a touch of oak, with some white pepper and nutmeg, and perhaps
    cornflakes. A style that’s perhaps a little more ‘midlands’ than
    ‘Speyside’, going towards, say Aberfeldy. Finish: medium, a little more
    honeyed, but the background remains a little peppery. Malty aftertaste,
    with a creamy vanilla. Comments: I find this really good, and pretty
    average in the best sense of that word. Also reminds of some
    contemporary Glenlivets. SGP:451 - 83 points.
