- A whisky rarely surpassed in complexity and balance.
Strong nose. Multi-layered fragrance that covers the 56.5 Vol% sustainably.
Aroma is reminiscent of dry Lake Constance algae and a sidewalk, just before a summer rain.
Red wine notes come through, peppermint reminiscent of speculoos.
On top of the glass Brunello or another heavy Italian red. Gooseberry at the bottom of the glass exit.
Sweet. Mon Cheri. Oily, creamy mouthfeel. Not spicy, edible without water.
Surprising on the finish, because it opens again for new flavors and no oak spicy developed. Long, warm, not dry, still creamy.
- Ben Nevis can have two distinct faces. This one combines the two in one dram.
Dirty toffee, peach, butter candy, hazelnut, papaya and apple. Later chocolate paste.
Peach, butter candy, blood orange, peanut, almond and walnut.
Walnut, peach, caramel and blood orange.
