    me brother wouldn´t like it, as the Irish sometimes say:-)
    78/100
    • Nose
      the wine influence is rather loud. wine gums and fruit drops, tropical fruit cocktail, scented tea.
      rather simple, lacking any complexity. the fruitiness is not integrated but sits on top of the spirit, if you know what I mean.
    • Taste
      again, lots of vulgar wine gum notes in the very foreground. the maltiness and spiciness in that
      whisky is really totally covered and gets smothered.
    • Finish
      medium, dull

    Finish:

    O:
    Another fantastic Wood Finish by Benriach, that takes Oxygen very well.
    I compared this directly with the Glenmorangie Bacalta and the Benriach was the clear Winner.
    Let's hope Benriach continues these Wood Finishes in the Future under Brown-Forman.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Tasty nutty, could be fruity.
    • Nose
      Apricot, vanilla, melon, light spices of nutmeg and Mediterranean herbs, oak very gentle
    • Taste
      Significant Nussigkeit, peach and pear, butterbread and nutmeg, a little ginger and medium oak, on the one hand it already reminiscent of Madeira, but has something very own from Benriach itself
    • Finish
      Dry, Madeira, medium long, butter stays in the mouth
