  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      91 91
      Fresh cut oranges, vibrant and bright orange. Lemon zest, canned peaches. Sweet, soft and very mellow. A very odd ben nevis from the usual.

      Caramel in the mix, floral with subtle earthy notes. Hazelnut milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet peaches, the orange from the nose comes by at a lesser acidity. Banana cream puff pastry, raspberry jam and apple strudel.

      White pepper splashed all over *cough*.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Warm and lengthy. Just goes on and on.

      The feeling after eating food with msg. Dry and needing for water.

  9. OJK scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Milky peach and pineapple on nose, warm and coating on the palate, with a mineral bite on the finish balancing with the tropical fruit
