  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Creamy and sweet PX flavors, which for the typical "dirty" basic tone of Ben Nevis, even this young Nevis, this time with a 1st Fill PX Sherry Octave Finish, is certainly not a high-flyer but is fun and really tasty ...
    • Nose
      Dark and heavy fruit sweetness stands out from the glass, dried grapes and berries combine with a hint of hazelnut and dark chocolate to create a sweet and fruity nose. Once again the "dirty" character of Ben Nevis, which is typical for me, is evident, while the dark and sweet PX aromas already dominate and stimulate the saliva with a hint of sour cherries and blackberries.
    • Taste
      Creamy, nutty, sweet, voluminous PX flavors, in the background there are slightly smoky hazelnuts in combination with liquid caramel and creamy milk chocolate. Dried fruits, caramelized sugar, spicy wood tones, minimally smoky and dirty ... compared to the Oloroso Octave, I find the alcohol stronger and more dominant.
    • Finish
      Sweet, creamy, nutty, raisins and cherries, blackberries in caramel, roasted hazelnuts with slightly tart oak. Sweet and creamy, the aftertaste with a pinch of salt stimulates the flow of saliva again ...

    A nice sherry note with candied fair fruit and mint slowly works its way to the front on the nose (83). On the palate there are first oak spices, then dark fruits with some lager aromas and well-integrated alcohol (82). The finish is medium-long and characterized by malty sweetness and some dark fruits (81).
