Whisky Reviews for Benrinnes 1995 SV

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.07 points

  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The nose is great, the taste is good but in the finish lies the weakness in this whisky. Except for the nose it’s Not your typical Benrinnes if you ask me. It’s a cask driven spirit.
    • Nose
      A citrussy and woody nose initially. It’s fresh and light. This eases down a little after some time. Full course woody lemonjuice becomes a more decent and subtle aroma of lemonpeel. After this some crème bruleé and a hint of cacao appear. It becomes more grassy after a while. The nose evolves for quite some time. All together it’s a very nice nose!
    • Taste
      Full bodied and well rounded with a hint of clove on arrival. Loaded with dried herbs. Quite spicy stuff! Not much fruitiness inhere.
    • Finish
      Dried herbs with some vanilla. There is quite an big amount of dry bitterness in the finish. This makes it a little hard to enjoy. At the very end the grassy note comes back which is more pleasant.

    Decent drinkable Benrinnes. Classic Benrinnes in some ways, but a little more to the citric side.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A light and delicate signature Benrinnes nose. Quite some citrus and particularly lemon, but in a nice and sweet way. There is also an chalk note in here, which is more hidden.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet and citrus. Quite some of it. There are also some candied orange peel notes. But overall it is sweet and citrus. The chalk note of the nose is marginal prevalent.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long length. More vanilla and caramel, but overall pretty similar with both nose and taste.

    • Nose
      vegetal and fruity, a smell of old books / cartons from old attic. I find something waxy there. It's fresh with lots of fruit, vegetal moss, hints of fresh cut herbs. Chlorophyll. It is quite fleshy too with a touch of vegetable surcers / celleri
    • Taste
      the mouth is supple and ample. It's complex and consistent with the nose. The development remains in the plant / honey / vanilla theme. The texture is covering and fat leaving a velvety impression persistent.
    • Finish
      Long, without losing complexity. The perfect malted / vanilla fade-out
