    Whisky ultra nice. A nice dry sherry with hints of choco, coffee, dried fruit and nuts. Too bad for this final.
    • Nose
      Roasted hazelnut notes really nice. Chocolate, coffee, dried fruit (grape, apricot, date)
    • Taste
      Powerful and rich. Mainly marked by a coffee-chocolate sherry. Some fruits and especially plums. It's pretty dry but I like it a lot.
    • Finish
      Very long but very hot, limit burning on cherries with brandy and mirabelle liquor. Pity

  4. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This Ben Nevis was distilled in December 1984 in Cask No. 98/35/1 for 25 years
    and vatted in sherry casks in October 1998 then bottled in January 2010.
    Only 628 individually numbered bottles were produced at cask strength 56.0% Vol. A Ben Nevis of
    this age tends to be a very robust, muscular, western highland style
    whisky. This one is typically full of spice, chocolate, coal, earth and
    rich fruits. A brilliant Ben Nevis, one of the best in recent years.
