    Notes taken from my blog:
    https://moredramslessdram.com/2019/12/24/quick-review-ben-nevis-21yo-batch-8-tbwc/

    This is one of the best drams of the Boutique-y 2019 advent calendar, and even better than the 23yo Ben Nevis tasted a few days ago. This whisky is whole, gourmand, warm and luscious, perfect for the Christmas season. Veeery good.
    • Nose
      The nose is rich, with toffee, dried fruits (sultanas, figs), and spices. Some dark chocolate gives a gourmand touch with an espresso and some wood varnish in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival with a waxy mouthfeel. Spices like cinnamon and ginger give you some warmth but without being aggressive. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, some orange, some leather notes, maybe also tobacco leaves from a cigar, and a touch of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Slightly drying, with a warmth staying long on the throat and the tongue. Loads of dark chocolate (don’t tell my kids) and oranges.
