43 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.55 points

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Well, he is not uncomfortable, but not pleasant. Personally, I find him not too bitter, rather too sweet to start. What I do not like so much is this medical touch. OK, I would not buy it, not even for 30, - €.
    • Nose
      Acts immediately after pouring extremely herbaceous, funny cough drops with wood fire. Only after a while, sweet notes mix under the hay. Fennel honey and Appelgriepsch, remains medically in the overall impression. The wood fire always comes after weaning of the glass and occupies the nose, peculiar effect, the malt itself seems to be smoke-free. When heated, the alcohol stings something in the nose, the apple gnaw gets a bit foul, vanilla and yeast come on. Raw cake dough.
    • Taste
      Bappig sweet first, very strong onset, a lot of white pepper, the apple is there and then again the herbs. The mouthfeel is quite full. When the burning stops, there is also a slightly bitter tannin charge in the back. You really feel reminded of Mary Poppins: When a spoonful of sugar sweetens you the medicine ...
    • Finish
      The sweetness is gone first, the tannins last a little longer, it also warms up very well. Overall, rather short to medium in length, dries off easily. But he does not seem bitter.

  2. ASWhisky did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    the whisky has a continuous line, nose, mouth reminder everything alike an always welcomed dram delicious 85 out of 100 points
    • Nose
      Vanilla, light glue, cereals, caramel on sweet apple meat, honey on date
    • Taste
      warm intense tingling sensation on the tongue, pleasant warmth on the palate, honey with chocolate, fruity, ripe quince, caramel on mashmallow, no alcoholic notes , but the alcohol slightly stuns the palate and it affects his mouth like too much light pepper,
    • Finish
      medium, chocolate with honey, amaranth with honey someone wrote, yes I can taste something in the finish, caramelized ivy leaves, the crumb apple appears again.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Hm. Benriach CS, I was looking forward to it. The description says "creamy, delicate ... orchard fruits, vanilla, coconut, sweet barley". May be in there somewhere, but I can not really find between wood and bite and bitter, without totally drowning him. It's oddly chosen and strangely described, and anyone expecting a typical young (fresh) bourbon barrel whisky is on the wrong track. And 60-70 € ... does not work.
    • Nose
      needs water, otherwise it stings and tickles too much in my nose ... dry, a lot of white pepper, tart herbs, grass, sawdust, wooden pencil ... behind it a little vanilla and cereals, but the dry-spicy-kräutrige predominates
    • Taste
      a lot of pepper, which is also present with water, there is caramel, malt sugar, but as soon as the tongue wants to find the pleasant and creamy, the pepper bites again, to Kräutrige and bitter notes, walnut, coffee, ginger ... and chew on wood
    • Finish
      long, woody, herbaceous, bitter, spicy

  4. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful nose, mouth and finish can not compete. Good drinkable, but no Nachkaufkantidat.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, caramel, for 57% low alcohol, some tropical fruits (possibly coconut), later subtle herbs
    • Taste
      Strong, spicy, now you can clearly see the alcohol, vanilla, oak, some herbs. With water: significantly milder, sweetness of honey and fruits, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium long, becomes drier. Quite bitter, espresso. Somehow unbalanced towards the end.

  5. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Yeah, the nose without water is great. In the taste then it needs water, otherwise not much comes next to the alcohol. The finish is again better without water. Overall nice, unfortunately he can not hide his youth.
    • Nose
      A nice bourbon nose comes out of the glass. Yes, is there something like that? And there's lemon, toffee, oak and eucalyptus with snow ... vanilla, caramel and apple jelly. With water goes too.
    • Taste
      The taste is vanilla sugar with a lot of oak. An oak cake, if you take it very carefully. Slightly spicy from the alcohol. With eau de crane is already too mild. But fits. Vanilla, oak and now comes the youth .... oh the youth ....
    • Finish
      Huiuiuiuiui, there comes the Borubonfass but again afterwards, yes gentlemen, is that to believe? Oak is still there with water, but the power is missing. Hmmmm ... without water he likes me better in the finish. There was this brute bourbon barrel that my throat is rolled down.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    There are a few things in there that I could actually like, I have nothing against herbs, coffee and burnt may already be, but overall I'm too vague, bitter, hot, with water, I get it not really delicious. No € 60 offense for me. Edit: Just look, I already had, there are already notes of mine down there - yes, conclusion fits, that's not mine.
    • Nose
      strong, dry, sawdust, white pepper, cereals ... then a little sweeter, first vanilla, then herbaceous-tart, not quite as sweet as herbal sweets, rather hay with many herbs, from the nose I just do not need to clean the water that's okay
    • Taste
      lots of pepper, here I want water, then on the one hand dark-sugary, on the other hand krututrig-bitter, the (black) pepper is a bit weaker, but remains quite dominant, really "cuddly" he will not, woody, bitter herbs, coffee, something walnut
    • Finish
      long, bitter, woody, spicy to very hot (depending on the addition of water), coffee, slightly burnt

  7. midnite scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Sugar bomb. Go to Bourbon, noticeably young.

  8. ricallende scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Notorious & intense dram!
    • Nose
      Sweet toasted oak spices.Black vanilla pods, coconut and floral notes.
    • Taste
      Creamy heather honey pours over a medley of apples, pears and apricots. candied peel and fresh ginger.
    • Finish
      Quite long with an ashy and velvety sensation along the aftertaste. Vanilla, toasted coconut and sweet barley.

  9. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins with a dense creamy caramel note, spicy woods, vanilla, chocolate and Toffifee. In the background nutty malty, oak and subtle notes of fruit and honey. With water: fruity, oak, floury apples, dried apricot, vanilla, cinnamon, citrus zest and musty rainy hay.
    • Taste
      Oak, cocoa, caramel, pepper, allspice, hot florality, loess and floury apples. With water: sweeter, again apples. Oak, gritty malt, coconut, pepper, orange peel and fragrant hay.
    • Finish
      Long, dried apricot, oak and orange.

  10. ctu scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, young BenRiach, but mainly because the CS. 83/84.
    • Nose
      Fruits, especially apple and banana. Vanilla. Lacquered wood. Spices.
    • Taste
      Powerful, oily. Honey, apple compote, corn flake, orange peel and ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium length, citrusy.
