20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.11 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like the smell very well, very aromatic, the desire stimulating to try, but not very multi-faceted. What is offered is intense.
    The taste fits in very well, but emphasizes the sweet notes, while in the nose was found a light acid (the cherries).
    The finish fits into the overall picture.

    A whisky that does not invite you to explore, but simply tastes good. I like it.
    • Nose
      Raisins and cherries, rose water, kirsch, raw, dark cake dough, almond, a little vanilla
    • Taste
      light body, gentle onset, sweet, lovely sherry, sweet cherries, milk chocolate, delicate oak note, in the background a light herbal note as from a herbal liqueur
    • Finish
      soft oak, chocolate and sherry, medium long

  4. LittlePeat scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nose: medium-ripe plums, "Colafläschchen". Maybe something like strawberry jam. The alcohol does not sting at all. Very nice, but also a bit boring. Hardly oak.
    Taste: Sweet, again cola bottle and some strawberry jam. Unfortunately, a slight false sound (core soap).
    Finish: Here finally comes the oak, the notes in the taste are repeated. Medium to short.
    Conclusion: Well ... Too good and a slight false mark.

  6. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A sweet Sherrymalt. Well balanced, round, tasty, dangerous. But then too sweet to drink more than 2 glasses, fortunately. ;-) Good PLV
    • Nose
      intense sweet sherry. Raisins and brown sugar. Vanilla, cinnamon, nutty. Light oak spices
    • Taste
      sweet onset, then comes the oak flavor with raisins, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, prunes. Cinnamon. Intense and delicious. round
    • Finish
      Long. The oak remains, sweet with sour elements and sherry. In the aftertaste comes a nice sherry nut note. goes down like oil.

  8. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful ripe-dark-fruity smoky malt, not only for Benriach lovers.
    • Nose
      A slightly smoky note is received by the nose. And sherry, dark fruits.
    • Taste
      Sherry, plum compote, smoke, herbs and your own Benriach note are immediately announced.
    • Finish
      There remain the fruits and the seasoning. The combination reminds me of some bunnahabhains.

  9. RichardMayston scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    It's OK, maybe scrapes a good. It is certainly not bad. 
    • Nose
      When it comes to peated and sherried I'm always hoping for another Bowmore 15 Laimrig, whisky is unfair and just setting yourself up for failure.

      The was an off putting mouldy rubber note to the nose. 
    • Taste
      Fruity raspberry, just not what I was looking for.
