Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 1997 GM
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.56 points
- 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.
