    Graeme is back. AM asks: “What do you like about Ben Nevis in general“? GM: “Erm,,… it’s stinky“.

    N: I totally agree: stinky, and pongy. The ‘warts n all’ is where Ben Nevis is at for me. With crisp-soft apple snow into nutty oaky gingery-sweet sugar icing, this is yeasty, fresh, vibrant, tastefully phenolic, young, fresh, relaxed,.. Nothing spikes, everything is just-so if formidable.

    T: Tart apples, a dribble of milky custard, “doughy” [AM]… the crips/young,….
    F: ,….. barley-faithful spirit carrying the [peppery/spirity/husky] apple-y qualities till the tail.

    C: You can see why this kind of juice might find its way [in small quantities] into Japanese-labelled blended whisky. Reminds me of the 3yo Queen Margot [WLP] in some ways, but, fresher, more forthright,… unfinished? On the flip-side, it’s a perfectly permissible unapologetic bold release.

    Fine distillate with potential that would have deserved a few more years in the barrel.
