...and it is worth a try but it is rather a (sub) standard Ben Nevis according to my taste buds. In the end it is not a Ben Nevis release I will remember after the bottle is finished, finally...
The nose shows some strange sulphurous-cheesy off-notes (like sweaty feet, that usually come from a distillation that did not meet the exact cut-off points, so some feints or foreshots are incidentally included). This is not to my liking, sorry.
The taste is better but still a little bit of the sour-cheesy notes shine through, unfortunately. Too bad, as the overall profile (without these flaws) is quite good actually with nuts, honeys, fruits and marzipan - and whoever likes such cheesy notes will adore this bottling too...
The initial mouthfeel as well as the finish owns some minor drying-astringent moments (tannins) that are not really distracting. The finish is long and chewable with more sour-winey flavours (that are better than the sweaty feet in the nose) and sweet sugars. I like it a notch better than the taste itself. Some water helps to reduce the cheesy aromas in the nose and turns the taste more approachable - I like this dram best when reduced to about 43% abv.
