    Nose- that Ben Nevis signature yeasty character. white pepper, salted fruit, lemon sweets, and a unique sort of floral or vegetal/herbal note.

    Taste- much like the nose. bready, yeasty, initially. then comes the mix of tart green apple and citrus elements. There is a bit of funkiness that is def the Ben nevis character.

    Finish- light, refreshing? much more thin than the OB 10.

    Very surprising drum, really unexpected quality for its price and reviews. It's been aged in refill butt, but I'm not sure it was a sherry butt at all, so don't expect any sherry influence. I really like it, so I bought a couple of bottles for myself before they were sold out.
    • Nose

      Rather gentle nose, a bit flowery, a bit grassy, a touch of lemon and very light touch or smoke. No sherry influence is felt at all.
      After 10 min in a glass, some fruity notes appear, like a touch of red apple and plum.
    • Taste
      90 90
      More intense than the nose, but very harmonic, feels older that 10 years. A touch of smoke, lemon peel, a bit waxy, with a touch of baked apple.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite long, lemon, lemon peel, a bit of dark chocolate, a touch of smoke and baked apple.

    There is no trace of the sherry, even if it is only supposed to have been refill, except for a little smoke and lemon there is not much. What a shame....
    • Nose
      74 74
      Slightly smoky, lemon, somewhat pungent, mineral, rubbery
    • Taste
      77 77
      Again slightly smoky, a little sweet, aniseed, green, grassy, lemon-apple-like
    • Finish
      72 72
      Very short and soft tapering, again a bit smoky, little else
