    Nose - Dark honey, hint of chocolate, leather, toasted nuts, dark toffee, oak Taste - Oaky, spicy fruit, chocolate mole spice/sweet, dark honey, slightly sweet bitter toasted nut skins, baked apples/pears, lightly burnt caramel Finish - Lingering tingle/heat, sweet bitter dominates, dark caramel creaminess, bitter fruit Score - 75/100 Final Thoughts - This definitely showed its age in the nose as it was nicely balanced and had this "dark" quality that took its time to open up. The palate reflected a tiny bit of this age in that it just tasted "old" in that all the flavors seemed well developed, but sadly there was this undertone of this nutty/fruity bitterness that kind of distracted from the overall experience. Some Scotches do this bitterness balance well, this was just a bit distracting. Would I drink it if offered? - Maybe Would I specifically order it? - No Would I buy a bottle? - No

    Shared by a friend. An old and discontinued version. There must be some part from Sherry Butts. A medium and smooth and comfortable aroma. Better right after a bourbon.

    Back in ChCh for work and thought it would be rude not to pop into my favourite whiskey bar. It's very dangerous being in here...I came for 1 or 2 and ended up with 5 drams I hadn't tried before. You know when you are visiting a bar to often when they start remembering what you have and haven't tried before! New stuff in all the time...starting with the newly branded 20 year Benriach. 43% but not getting much out it, dropped a couple of drops of water and it fell apart. Haven't been impressed with their standard range to be honest. Came back too it later and it opened up a bit. 3.25 I reckon.
