    Fortunately the leathery note on the nose wasn't on the palate as it is a little bit pointing to some sulphur - all in all pretty drinkable
    • Nose
      Sherry, leathery, nutty, hints of citrus fruits
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, lemony, subtle sweetness, peppery
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm

  8. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    All in all, this is quite a versatile bottling. It has a good combination of a dirty, meaty profile, along with fruit and spice. 
    • Nose
      Ahhh, a typical Ben Nevis :). Earthy, with roots, licorice, tobacco, a slight burnt caramel and sulphur note (but pleasantly), peated water (did you ever try?), fresh coriander cinnamon, flor (from the sherry) and a lot of dried fruits. It's not elegant, but very entertaining.
    • Taste
      Thick, creamy toffee and vanilla, again this peated water, sulphur, flor, and dried fruit. This time, some freshly squeezed orange juice comes into play too. The earthy side is more on the background now. After a while, the dirty profile (with camphor) gets louder again.
    • Finish
      The finish is moderate, a tad salty, earthy, with spices and dried fruits. Salty licorice, tobacco, cinnamon, clove, dates, figs, sultanas and prunes.

  9. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is a nice Ben Nevis that has a good balance between the sweet (candy store/sherry) and savory tones. At the start this whisky comes through as a bit rough and “dirty” but after some aeration time and a wee drop of water it opens up quite nicely. It has a nice layering of flavours and to be frank this one could keep me occupied and quite happy for quite some time.
    All in all a lovely and lush expression of Ben Nevis.
    • Nose
      A rich, sweet, juicy and powerful whisky with aromas of dark honey, lush sherry, slightly sour tones, dried fruits (figs, apricots, raisins), vanilla, caramel, subtle soapy tone, toffee, hint of sulphur, berries (raspberries, blueberries, elderberries), apple, pear, cinnamon, green tea, earthy tones, damp cellar, hint of leather, subtle mocha, apricot jam and creamy oak.
    • Taste
      A sweet, creamy and powerful whisky with aromas of licorice root, pepper, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg, subtle sherry tones, greengage, dried fruits (figs, apricots, golden sultanas, subtle dates), tangerines, grapefruit peels, butterscotch, floral tones, hay, caramel, cinnamon, herbal tones (rosemary, thyme, sage), sweet tobacco, hint of walnut, subtle leather and creamy oak.
    • Finish
      A long, warm and slightly drying finish with aromas of pepper, caramel, toffee, dried fruits, backing spices, slightly sour sherry tones, hazelnuts, tannins, hint of molasses and creamy oak.
