  5. Arquebus scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Delicate, Fruity and waxy - tried at Royal Mile Whiskies in Edinburgh against a Clynelish SV 10yr old and a more typical Ben Nevis. An intriguing whisky - well worth a punt for those looking to explore the corners of the flavour map!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Fruit, pear, light waxy finish. Like a delicate and refined Clynelish?

      Clean, mouthwatering, delicate
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium finish
