Whisky Reviews for Benrinnes 1998 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.82 points

  1. Joschbert scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Commutes between sweet and sour. Creates an impressive development from the palate to the finish. Great quality for a very fair price.
    The 'predecessor bottle' from 2015 (vintage but matured in refill barrels) provides a clear comparison to 1st fill. Both highly recommended.
    • Nose
      89 89
      ripe red fruits, sour berries, nutty sherry notes, oranges, mint, spicy oak, wax, peaches, indefinable spice mix and some vanilla
    • Taste
      90 90
      moderate sherry, then dreamy warming roasted notes, strong coffee, sour plums and sweet dates, sandalwood, spice cake, marzipan and tobacco
    • Finish
      91 91
      dark chocolate, cinnamon and cloves, walnuts, still tobacco, finally ash

  2. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Really beautiful complex whisky. 

    Fruit, oak, chocolate, sherry, gingerbread spice and herbs.
