Whisky Reviews for Ben Bracken Islay Cd

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.58 points

  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A little one dimensional, but for less than 20 quid you can't go too far wrong.
    • Nose
      80 80
    • Taste
      82 82
    • Finish
      78 78

  2. domani scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Do not think this whisky is that bad. There are a few whiskys on the market, especially in supermarkets that are structured similarly and yet more expensive. The price / performance ratio in this one is absolutely outstanding - 03.01.2019
    • Nose
      Cigarette smoke in the car on a cold winter morning, campfire, fat flavor on bacon, cheap BBQ sauce, malt
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet smoke aroma, soft and mild, malty, hot, grilled bacon fat
    • Finish
      medium

  3. Abtbernardus scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    Nice bottle but nothing special. It lacks some smoke and peat to stand in the row of the real Islay. But fair quality / price ratio.
    For your worst friends who like to drink your smoke whisky ... :) For that price, please put this bottle on the table.
    • Nose
      77 77
      Some citrus, soft smoke-tones, dough, some medicinal
    • Taste
      76 76
      Smoked ham, charcoal, spices
    • Finish
      77 77
      Short aftertaste, lacking some alcohol-strength, slight spiciness, somewhat bitter in the end.

  4. FritzeKrautman did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    No high flyer, but a really honest, satisfying Islay malt. Good value for money.
    • Nose
      Cold campfire. Malt. Iodine and rubber. Some citrus. Coffee and some pepper.
    • Taste
      Sweet starting. Maritime echoes, smoke. Alcohol sufficiently strong for only 40% Vol. Very creamy mouthfeel producing.
    • Finish
      Amazing long finish with coffee, malt and smoke.

  5. arobot scored this whisky 77 points Member Senior

    Significantly better than the price suggests.
    • Nose
      warming, clear smoke, then fruit
    • Taste
      oily, smoky aromas, malt, slightly spicy sharpness
    • Finish
      not too long, bitter

  8. Goethe scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Smoky fresh Islay whisky. Comparable to Finlaggan Original.Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Smoke. Hints of coal, citrus, salt, ashes.
    • Taste
      Smoke. Citrus, hay, ashes.
    • Finish
      Short. Smoke and citrus.

  9. Bendrachm did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    The price is an insult to the content of this bottle. Young islay full of goodness. 
    • Nose
      Sweet peat smoke. First strikes as a young Lagavulin. Remiscent of Ileach. But... that hint of fermented banana and lemon turns it into Caol Ila. 
    • Taste
      Bitter apple, pisang goreng. Burnt lemon grass. Dark chocolate. Salted toffee. Caol Ila. 
    • Finish
      Brine. With a metallic sediment. Industrial soot.
