Kininvie 17 Years Old 1996 Batch 1

Kininvie 17yo 1996 batch 1

Like Monkey Shoulder with the good bits taken out, there is something really quite disappointing about this expression and I think it is complete lack of character. Even the attempted cask maturation to create balance has just rendered this a little beige. Still nice to try an offering from a distillery we haven’t previously sampled. 61/100

BenRiach 1999 PX Sherry Finish


OK so its past maybe a little cloudy, however this is an incredibly nutty and deep sugary dram that I just loved! This hit my flavour profile completely! I found this a lot more PX sherry-influenced than the official notes suggest. Yes there were hints of the underlying bourbon cask maturation, but this was NUTS! 90/100
