Benriach 1982/1993 (60.6%, Gordon & MacPhail Cask, casks #5211, 12, 13)
Colour: gold. Nose: hotter and more spirity than the 36 yo but most amazingly, it doesnt seem to be much younger (well, its rather that the other one didnt seem to be much older, actually). We do have quite some flinty, gunpowder-like notes again, as well as apricots, tobacco, hints of cedar wood and mint leaves, but with probably more sourness and yeastiness (quite some muesli, oatmeal, true yoghurt
) and hints of fresh parsley. Notes of buttered caramel nice and not overpowering! Mouth: again, its surprisingly drinkable and I dont feel the need to add any water to it. Very sweet and grainy attack, with lots of cider, apple juice, cereals, getting almost as spicy as the 36 yo (pepper, cinnamon and clove etc.) We do have a certain sourness again that make me think of some Greek or Turkish dishes that are cooked with yoghurt. Something bourbonny as well, quite some vanilla and lactones
The finish is rather long but not immensely so, despite the 60%. Anyway, a good one again, lacking perhaps a little delicacy. But then again, maybe I should have added a few drops of water. 82 points.
