  3. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A special double-matured caskstrength 25yo single cask Ben Nevis, this

    whisky was matured for 14 years in bourbon casks before being re-racked

    into a sherry butt in 1998 for a second maturation of over a decade

    before bottling in 2010.

  5. hsmithjr scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    An absolute delight. Stunning!
    • Nose
      Strong sherry at first. Dark chocolate. Raisins and figs. Cherries? Old wood floors. Hints of smoke.
    • Taste
      Full and round. Dark fruits....dates and figs. Smoked sherry. Liquorice and anis. Plaster.
    • Finish
      Long into next week. Drying with a woody flavor. Cocoa, and more liquorice.

  6. Lafroy scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry, glue and oak
    • Taste
      It starts with great sweetness, chocolate, then sweetness goes away to let pepper and chili in plus some dry wine. At the end a little bit of honey and raisins, Very sweet red orange.
    • Finish
      Relatively long, it starts with sweetness, spiciness and some dryness.
