peathead gave this whisky 89 points

by Serge Valentin:

Ben Nevis 10 yo 2006/2016 (51.3%, Le Gus’t, Selection VI, sherry, cask #3, 763 bottles) Four stars763 bottles? That’s a butt! Colour: amber/caramel. Nose: used gunpowder and walnut wine. You see what I mean. Then cigars and burnt bread. With water: umami, soy sauce, more walnuts. And even more walnuts. Mouth (neat): quite a bomb! Erm, so to speak. Gunpowder and rather bitter oranges this time, artichoke liqueur, more old walnuts, cream oloroso (you may still find bottles at flea markets), and spinach cooked in beef sauce. Not quite Marmite, but… With water: careful, don’t add too much water, not all sherry monsters like water anyway, that can make them lose their stride. Gets very dry, very oloroso. Finish: rather long, with oranges and cloves now. Another touch of leather in the aftertaste. Comments: this is funny, this baby reminds me of many an old official Ben Nevis. I mean, the sherry bombs. Classic and very good – if you like this style, of course. I do. Same high level as the OB. SGP:361 - 87 points.

Nose

Le nez est flatteur; Pas de doute on est sur un peaty sherry sans concession.
L alcool n agresse pas les narines, a première vue cela colle vraiment au profil oloroso type glendroach revival, cacaoté et sec.
La tourbe est bien présente mais dure a décrire a cause de l' assemblage et des relents de cuir.

Taste

L'alcool n'agresse pas la bouche, je suis agréablement surpris; Tout est fondu, rien ne dépasse.
Effectivement le profil oloroso du glendro revival se retrouve mais dans une version plus épicée. La tourbe n'est pas aussi présente qu'au nez. Pas non plus de côté viandé mais un côté salin assez prononcé qui débarque à mi chemin et reste jusqu'à la fin.

Finish

Une finale qui dure assez longtemps pour finir avec la sensation de poussière sur la langue et plus tard une fois le sel passé de bacon fumé.

Comments

Pour n'avoir gouté qu'au fameux Port Sgioba 826/2001 je ne me qualifierai pas de grand connaisseur du profil peaty/sherry, néanmoins celui là est bien fait. Son jeune age ne pose pas de problème, à croire que c'est le style qui veut cela.
Le degré est parfait.
