    09/12/2018:
    Indistinct, "green" (young) in aroma, with much more interesting and meaningful taste and aftertaste.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Surprisingly fuselage beginning, then fruit, floral, apricot, raisins, tropical notes (mango, kiwi ...), the aroma is noticeably young ("green"), sauerkraut, a little dust, honey notes, cherries, vanilla, pulp orange, candles / paraffin. Looks much younger than the stated age, lacks expressiveness, density.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Caramel, fruit, pepper, juicy, apples, oranges, delicious.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Pepper, growing, long, juicy fruit, knits, wax.

    You would not guess it is Ben Nevis in the glass in case of blind tasting.
    It is very disappointing that official single cask with proper age tastes like this(
