    Ben Nevis 17 yo 1995/2013 (51.8%, Càrn Mor for Whisky Circle Pinzgau, sherry hogshead, cask #965) Sherry + Ben Nevis is often a funny game. Colour: gold. Nose: very dry and leathery! A leather shop somewhere in Turkey, with hundreds of jackets, coats, shoes, even trousers (I think we got it, S.) Some gunflints too, a feeling of smoke, then soot and saltpetre, moss, cellar, fern, engine oil, chocolate, matches, more rocks... And before you ask, no cabbage/eggs. More raisins, chocolate and oranges after a while, it`s becoming much less dry. With water: yesss! More fresh herbs, mint, lime and oranges. Doesn`t go off the tracks - as some may do. Mouth (neat): as I often say, Ben Nevis is never boring. This time it`s a combination of malt and oranges that take the lead, with something slightly burnt in the background (bacon??) and a growing chocolaty side. Big cinchona and chlorophyll too, a little biting. With water: chocolate, pepper and oranges. Remains just a notch prickly/fizzy. Finish: good length. Orangeade, touches of leather again in the aftertaste. Comments: fun and very good, as a middle-aged Ben Nevis should be. Not `dirty` at all! SGP:652 - 87 points.
