Whisky Reviews for BenRiach 1978

- Topper for me. Very soft Port taste with a very complex aftertaste.
Very shy nose here, some sherry/port wood (Christmas cake, raisins and berries). Kind of simple, a touch of tropical fruits. Some walnut liqueur, a good old Speysider nose. Still some Hawthrone paste, very close to https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/85896/1977
Very dry, rich herb medicine, a lot of tannins, wood extracts. The body is medium, very very mellow and soft. More camphor brings freshness. But overall kinds of simple.
Long, a lot of raisins, dried dates, dark chocolate, Christmas cake, chocolate brownies.
