    Actually an atypical Ben Nevis for me, a lot of sweetness, accompanied by some sour elements in the nose, transforming to something moldy in the taste. After some while thing definately get some better, but still it's not the quality of Ben Nevis I'm used to. Still okay though.

      Fruity, apples, citrus, a hint of overripe fruits as well. Also some perfume-like scent, floral. After a while, the sour edge is gone.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pickering, pepper, a bit moldy, wet cardboard. Later on more sweetness comes in and things improve, caramel, peach.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Still a little pepper, but much smoother than the body. Sweet, vanilla, peach, middle long finish.

    Gentle, soft but a real Ben Nevis.
