Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 15-year-old Sauternes

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.79 points

  1. Svjatogor scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    n: lot of vanilla, fruit, vanilla ice cream, caramel, hint of cereal and pepper
    t: sweet, vanilla, fruit
    a: nuts, vanilla, oily

  2. Highlander65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Scent of sweet wine, raisins, butter, a little wax and dried fruit. On the palate it is dense and sweet, tastes of vanilla, butter and chocolate, with a slightly acidic note of sour fruit. Long, creamy, butter, chocolate finish.

  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    So very cask-forward it's hard to score. I couldn't tell there was Benriach distillate in the glass, because everything's drowned in sauternes. May appeal to friends of port finishings, but not my cup of tea at all.
