    Verkostungsnotiz Serge:
    Ben Nevis 3 yo (56.6%, Whisky Hood, peated sherry bloodtub, 2019) Four stars and a half
    Good fun from Switzerland. 3 years, that's pretty young, but we could notice, in the past, that bloodtubs were very fast! Colour: amber. Nose: rusty, spicy, peaty, very medicinal. Embrocations, thuja wood, teak oil, retsina, loads of tar, old tarry ropes, peach leaves… With water: Grisons meat (no wonder, the honourable bottler is Swiss) and bresaola, plus touches of new tyres and alpine mud. I am not joking and am finding this lovely and very pleasantly 'different'. Mouth (neat): good fun indeed! This works, it's thick as a liqueur, mentholy and camphory, very tarry, extractive, with a good dollop of green chartreuse and probably some Bénédictine to boot. It's very good, I think. With water: perhaps a nod to butter pears, otherwise more cough medicine and tar. Finish: long and tarry, with some coastal elements as well as some heavy beer in the aftertaste. Comments: truly excellent. These little bloodtubs can be true bastards and leak more than a Jaguar, but when they work they work. Excellent, and probably pretty rare. Grüezi!

    Received as a mistery sample from Roger thus tasted blindly.
    • Nose
      Red winey, strawberry, very sweet, a wall of smoke behind the sweet notes, sweet menthol, candy cotton, cherry, tar
    • Taste
      Alcohol good integrated, no sting, sour berries, ripe peach, chimney smoke, strawberry, light peat aroma
    • Finish
      Strong black tea, bitter walnut, a hint of lemon, malty sweetness, a bit peppery
