  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This may be a BenRiach on an oloroso sherry cask, but it is all but unrecognizable. Between 100 and 130 EUR, depending on where you shop.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly green, I must say. The first thing that comes to mind is parsley. Then I get some chemical notes like ecoline (finger paint) or plasticine. Well, that was a bit of a scare. Only after some patience do I get some fruity notes in the guise of raisins and candied blood orange. Add some walnuts and a hint of gingerbread. The longer you leave it, the sweeter it becomes. Patience is a virtue.

    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, spicy and sweet with a sudden and unexpected note of milk chocolate.

    Nice maturation, the sherry is not exaggerated. Profuse fruitiness and spiciness.
    • Nose
      Sherry, toffee, raisin, vanilla, orange peel, walnut and pepper.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Rum and sour, tannic oak. Vanilla and raisin. Green apple peel.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy and fruity.
