Wonderfully long and oily "legs" stick to the glass wall, bright copper shimmers in the Premium Snifter, from a distance sour cherries and caramel make themselves felt. At the first powerful "nose" spicy oak tones, dried berries and caramel rise in the nose. Caramelized sugar plays with toffee and spicy caramel, dried grapes and berries combine with a touch of milk chocolate, salted and roasted peanuts mix with sour cherries and morello cherries.

The alcohol is wonderfully integrated harmoniously, crumbs of butter biscuits and shortbread fall on salted peanuts. A truly harmonious, multi-layered and filigree nose, let's see what the Ben Nevis has to offer in terms of taste ...
Sweet and dry, the first aromas on the tongue bounce, also here the first impression is rather restrained but very tasty and extremely stimulating. Creamy flowing the first sip sweet and buttery through the palate, from butter biscuits or biscuits and a nut mixture dissolve shadow morels and blackberries, only after a few moments a pleasant sharpness creeps over the tongue and teasing seductively on the tip of the tongue. The flavors of the taste are equally filigree, clear and absolutely not overloaded, hazelnuts play with oranges, sour cherries with milk chocolate, plums and plums end in tentative floral notes with a minimal grassy touch.

Buttery biscuits, plums, caramel, cherries and nuts are creamy and buttery on the tongue.
