    The cough syrup texture and taste was surprising and I liked the sweet and dirty mouth. Not an easy dram for sure but definitely an interesting one.
    • Nose
      Dried fruits, prunes, orange, lime, coffee.
    • Taste
      Punchy and very syrupy. It sticks to the tip of the tongue. Spices, fruits, chocolate. Warming and slightly dirty.
    • Finish
      Long. Mouth coating. Slightly bitter.

    This Ben Nevis is a "Limited Edition" from La Maison du Whisky. It is distilled in 1990 and matured in Sherry Butt, Cask # No. 1506 for "over 20 years", until 2011, where it is bottled by "Cask Strength" of 60.8%. The motif on the label is a copy of the painting "# 003 Deliberate Shapes in Blue, Red, Black and White" from 2010 made â€
    • Nose
      Complex and fine with malted barley, lots of coffee, raisins, dried prunes, candied orange, honey, lime, ginger, apricots, gingerbread, pine, broom, hay and cilantro.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, thick and soft with egenoter, chocolate, Christmas pudding, syrup, dark cocoa, cinnamon, clove, mint, raisins, ginger, dried tomatoes, cardamom and Sherry.
    • Finish
      Long and rustic with fresh walnuts, fresh grapes, mint, bitter chocolate, ginger, plums, mushrooms, rose water, flowers and green notes.
