Whisky Reviews for Ben Bracken 1993 Cd

23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.95 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    40 € for a 22-smoke Islay single malt are ridiculously little, especially in the showpiece. Tasty not outstanding, but with quite interesting notes and good tasty - 40 € and more I would probably treat him too blind.
    • Nose
      medium smoke (for 22J. very tidy), rather dry, ashy, a touch of new / hot plastic (plasticizer?), some freshness (salt, lemon, peppermint?), in the background caramel, honey, slightly sweet and fruity (watermelon? )
    • Taste
      Ash, salt, pepper ... then bittersweet - coffee, burned sugar, cough drops, camomile, herbal bitters; by 40% but pleasant, more could be too bitter.
    • Finish
      medium long, warm and dry, ash and cough drops

  2. checkpointuk scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Old gold / amber
    Nose:
    Sweet malt with honey and light peat swaths with suppressed smoke. Dry leather, subtle aromas of wild berries, tart orange and little spice. Overall quite thin.
    Taste:
    Very thin! Barely perceptible and heavily diluted peat-smoke combination with low seasoning. In the second part he develops a little better - pepper, herbs, dried fruits and orange peel with a slightly sweet liqueur and hints of wood. Everything again more than thin.
    Finish:
    Short! Milder and sweeter. Emerging caramel notes push the fruit components into the background. Slightly smoky with some white chocolate and cocoa powder.
    Comment:
    Altogether too thin! The little bit of this malt is not that bad. We would have liked to try it in cask strength.

  3. Punktar scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    For the price a really useful whisky. He would definitely win if he had been filled with a little more alcohol. Tastes good to me Bowmore (but of course only my personal opinion, but if you look at the picture in the inner lid of the beautifully made box, there is a point at the end of Loch Indal circled.) Then there are not so many distilleries left. ..)
    So again briefly: pleasant in the nose, pleasing in the taste (after 22 years there is not really much smoke left, but that does not matter) and a little bit of alcohol. For the price really ok and there are some more expensive whiskys on the market, which would be glad if you reached the level.

  4. Albaron scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    A delicious whisky that just lacks strength. A touch of alcohol would bring him even further. Still nice flavors and especially the nose is very good.
    • Nose
      Smoke, slightly oily, some barley sugar, malty, dried fruit, raisins, plum jam, sawdust
    • Taste
      some phenolic smoke, also raisins, then barrel wort, dried fruit, a bit musty and malty
    • Finish
      the barrel wort and the smoke fade slowly, the raisins come from time to time again. A few tannins also appear now and then.

  5. Numwierum scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    He lacks volume, but all in all, a very pleasant whisky.

  6. The Macallan scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very nice in flavor, a good price quality, but not as round as in the round church.
    • Nose
      Smoky, sherry, slightly fruity and very familiar on the nose
    • Taste
      Sweet, smoky, warm, less intens fruit as the distillery versions
    • Finish
      Dry, fruity and some smoked wood in the back

  7. malthead-sven scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    He can really please me for a "cheap whisky". The nose knows how to please, but then it falls off a bit. Apart from a lot of dye, he certainly got one or the other refill sherry keg.
    • Nose
      fruity and smoky at the same time, ripe strawberries, sweet currants, a slightly maritime note, sal ammoniac, bicycle tube, after the first sip it gets sweeter, more does not change over time
    • Taste
      Grain, brown bread, very little smoke only, brings a certain spiciness, cloves, nutmeg, but everything is rather mild
    • Finish
      the smoke gets stronger again, generally not so intense, just medium

  8. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    For a whisky with age rather flat, for me he has an Ardbeg note but it will probably have been a 4-fill barrel ;-(
    Not profound, so no real notes. ...

  9. Tobs1991 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    To me it smells and tastes absolutely like a Bowmore.
