Sharp and precise. Crystalline. Lime juice, mint, and a damn good smelling lemon dishwasher liquid... weird, I know, but at the same time, I am not saying this is soapy at all. It's not.
Wow, this is great stuff... Again, very slow and precise in its attack. Like an old Rare Malt Clynelish. Clean, citrusy, with peach, nectarines, and honey in midpalate onwards. Loads of lime! None of that heavy sherry that can ruin an otherwise great distillate.
I've always thought Ben Nevis produces a great distillate. This proves it. You put the juice in a pretty naked barrel, give it some years, and the end product is absolutely terrific. Great stuff.
A few drops of water makes this rounder, but it's more intense without.
Would love to have a full bottle of this baby.
Easy, easy 92 points here.
... PS... I did ended up getting a bottle of this from auction. Not sure when I will open it, but I am looking forward to it.
