  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Finally a malt that presents itself flawlessly from start to finish. Covers a beautiful and uncomplicated spectrum of aromas and for me it is simply well done. At the issue price at the time, it was probably a snapper and for me one in the collection that would "always work".

    With this "Marshmallow Biscuit" I treat myself to a Walkers Shortbread Cookie - Food Pairing on Fleek.

      At the beginning a very light, dry-sour note. Something between fresh wooden boards and squeezed lemon zest. After a few moments, the whole thing is accompanied by a creamy sweetness - the advertised marshmallows? Even though we're in deep winter right now, I feel like I've been transported to a warm summer evening on the terrace. The spicy wood then decreases greatly and the lemon predominates. Homemade lemonade, plus fluffy meringues and Werther's Original - that's what I call nice mental cinema at temperatures close to 0 degrees Celsius.

      This Benrinnes rolls over the tongue beautifully spicy with tangy lemon zest. Wonderfully balanced, nothing is too dominant and the alcohol is barely noticeable, even though this is the first malt in a long time. Some tart chocolate plays in the background, the second sip is a bit more sparkling with edgy herbal notes.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Fresh cocoa powder is combined with a beautiful light wood note and again - what a surprise - great fresh lemon. Full-bodied, long-lasting and anything but flat. Typical Speyside character as it appears in the picture book. Reminds of candidates from Longmorn and co.
