    Very nice fresh and fruity whiksy, especially the nose is very rich. The PX cask adds just a little more fruitiness, very pleasant.

      Full scent, very fruity, winegums. Cherries, citrus. Also very floral. Vanilla, and tropical fruits. Very fresh and attractive.

      Smooth, later on more pickering mouthfeel comes in. A lot of sweet and fruity notes, tropical fruits, some pineapple, orange, raspberry. And vanilla. Full taste.

      Now a little more pickering, peach and orange, also some raspberry and vanilla, middle long finish. Later on stronger. Finish gets on a bit longer then too.

    Where is the PX hiding?
    But dusty and waxy as I expect a Ben Nevis.

    Edit: one or two drops of water make it even more pleasing.
    • Nose
      Lemon, oranges, sherry, caramel, nut, dusty, old wood
    • Taste
      Oily, pepper, lemon, grapefruit, salted caramel, fresh, edgy, spicy
    • Finish
      Spicy, grapefruit, light wood, frankincense? Dusty, waxy.
