  1. BeatF scored this whisky 87 points Photo Moderator

    Really good for a 10 year old; now and then a little rarely available, so please hamster immediately if available somewhere despite Corona. Has its own special character.
    • Nose
      Walnuts, oranges, crystallized honey, elegant oak
    • Taste
      Added to this are caramel (three seconds before burning or even three seconds after the burning point?), White grape juice and the first step to tequila, namely lime peel with a little salt> really great delivery, the saliva just runs together ...
    • Finish
      dark fruits, dark caramel, very nutty;
      the sweetness, paired with the slight bitterness, the salt and the burnt on, I personally find sensational!

    A really thick board from Ben Nevis, there are definitely older barrels involved.

    For me, it's the best of core range 10-12 years old whisky.
