  2. Ganga scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    This has that lovely matly sweetness with a bed of fresh straw. While not as sweet, this follows right along with the nose and finishes with the straw. This is very good if not the most complex.

  3. WhiskyCasual scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet with cereals, some grass, light fruits (grapes, pears, but also some apples), behind that a slight note of perfume / soap, which disappears again
      With a little time, fresh fruits become more fermented
      With water: get more acidic
    • Taste
      89 89
      sour start, tingling on the tongue, oak present, hardly sweet anymore, with grapes and pears
      Creamier with water and a little less oak flavor
    • Finish
      88 88
      Grape skins, even slightly waxy after a while
      Add some dark chocolate with water and some freshly cut wood

      No surprise: Ben Nevis distillate meets wood, nice combination!
