    On the nose when you walk into a dunnage warehouse you have musty earthy tones with leather, tobacco, mocca, and beautiful spiciness.
    In terms of taste, it is a bomb of flavors. Red fruits, dark chocolate, expresso, bay leaf in the background. Nicely layered also with a ,,whiff of smoke,,.
    The finish is medium to long and lingers nicely in the mouth.

    The best Ben Nevis I've ever had by the glass and one of the best whiskys I've ever had by the glass. Very nice nutty sherry influence (comparable to some older PX Glendronachs); wonderful mineral Ben Nevis notes that stand out very much; Overall, the whisky looks a few years older. Freshly opened still a bit peppery on the palate, but now almost perfect.

    Fine whisky, but I miss the fruity character of a real Ben Nevis a bit.
    As far as I'm concerned, the sherry influence could have been a little less.
    Doesn't take away from the fact that it is a fine whisky despite that.
