Although the taste and finish are rather subtle, I like the overall package of this Ben Nevis very well. Luckily I have a little something in the sample in it
Tobacco and leather; dark, sweet sherry meets dried fruits; Furniture polish; a little sulfur; slightly tart notes are also there; Christmas fruit (oranges and mandarins with clove and cinnamon); very subtle herbal flavors; slight bitterness and spiciness; the nose becomes more complex over time and it will be difficult for me to name all the flavors.
very oily and very soft on the tongue; oak again together with leather and dark fruits; again full, dry sherry; the tingling builds up only very slowly and is very discreet
medium to long; the oak dominates the finish; again dark fruits and a heavy sweetness; the oak remains on the palate for a very long time; again slightly harsh;
