  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Pastry notes. Ben Nevis's "herbaceous caramel" shines brightly. Frangipane. Juicy and mellow on the palate. Final explosive.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Whisky n ° 2172

    old, dried glue, strong vanilla, wood and fruits in bulk.
    the mouth brings macerated fruits, a little cooked, a little sweet but with intense scents, very pleasant! a little backgrass and spices that further potentiate the sensation of fruit, a little confectioner with sweet caramel
    the final on the same scents lasts long enough, sensation superb.

    Dark sherry but the distillate is still there, mineral, citrusy and a bit dirty, some sulphur (good one), great integration.

    On the nose figs and raisins mixed with musty smoke and old leather, some mushrooms covered in wet soil, some chalk along with aniseed, cinnamon and vanilla. Caramel and vanilla cream on the palate, with papaya and kiwi, with notes of leather and chalk coming in on the finish, along with herbal smoke and spiced cherry.

      Musty leather and mushrooms, also some apricots. Very interesting nose!

      More fruit on the palate - a mix of tropical fruit with guava sticking out the most.

      Finish was surprisingly not as long as I expected, nice but not exceptional.
