  3. DerDennis! scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    He needs a lot of air and time for me. Very complex, both on the nose and on the palate. The finish is also nice and long.
    With water it becomes much fruity and tamed, almost tasty ... altogether even better.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Cereals, hair spray, malt, a lot of honey, vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper, herbs, lemon balm, roasted almonds, cocoa powder, ginger, tropical, light fruits .... white gummy bears
    • Taste
      90 90
      sweet, light spicy, typical Ben Nevis herbal note, oatmeal cookies with a lot of honey, pepper, clear tannins, but not bitter, malty, vanilla, pineapple
    • Finish
      90 90
      long, pleasant barrel, herbs, cereals and honey, very subtle fruit note
