3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Successful, fruity and not too sour ex-Bourbon Benrinnes that doesn't get boring. 46% fit exactly here.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Immediately opens up as a spicy, concentrated fruit with delicious honey notes.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Honeydew melons, shortcrust biscuits filled with lemon curd, ripe red apples and sweetened grapefruit are revealed in the mouth.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is long, quite elegant and fruity-refreshing.

  2. Abadon05 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Joa not bad at all. The ginger notes surprise something, but otherwise a typical Benrinnes the sweet variant.
    • Nose
      Wine gum (that of Haribo), minimal sulfur smell, honey, lemon, banana
    • Taste
      Ginger and sulfur
    • Finish
      Medium. Honey, wax and mint

  3. Mischi did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    From the Speyside, this Benrinnes comes after 19 years in the Bourbon barrel full of elegance and complexity occurs. A really round malt with lots of honey, sweet malt, apricot and heather.
