    Lovely dram, I fortunately got 3cl from a friend. There is a lot to discover in this dram. Too bad I do not have a bottle myself.

  14. Theflyingmaltman scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Nose: The smell of a damp cellar and caramel fudge. That is what I should think about when I sniff this wonderful whisky. Incidentally, that smell is not at all disturbing. on the contrary .. It is something I have never experienced in this way.
    Taste: really an explosion of taste. droppy, spicy, beeswax .. Finish: earthy taste that stays pleasantly long. Comments: very nice whisky with a strong bourbon influence. himself not yet very familiar with Ben Nevis, but this will not last long. Topper!

    Sjmaerig lekker, duudelik wie Ben Nevis huert te sjmake. En dan waor dit nog mer 'n bourbon vaat, op sherry waor 't mesjien waal get te väöl van 't goeie gewaes. 88/89.

    (With so many people posting their notes in their own languages, I felt that this was the appropriate occasion to do so for once as well. Sorry, Google Translate won't help you very much)
