  1. Othorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Let the guy breathe a little bit, now the lid is lifted and zack attack me exotic fruits with forest honey, caramel and herbs. At first difficult to distinguish, but gradually I find oranges, mangoes, pineapple and limes. Add spicy forest honey, peppermint tea, rosemary and wild garlic!?! But overall, the fruity sweetness prevails. No trace of alcohol despite> 53 turns.
    in the mouth confirms itself, barrel that needs no water, oily, a little beeswax, very sweet and again fruits! Strong comes the Ben Nevis therefore, with a nice ginger sharpness, in addition to rosemary and other herbs that I can not define exactly in the background. Superficial but again honey sweet with orange and pineapple. HM delicious!
    The finish is quite long, nice and warm, the spicy forest honey and the slightly spicy ginger assert themselves long after the fruits have already faded.
    Very cool stuff! Almost at the 90 points, provisionally I give 89/100

    The nose is promising sweet and malty. On the palate it starts with a wave of spices, some sweet pepper, oak, some saw dust, and then the sweetness kicks in massively. Yellow fruits, some apricots, sugar, bubble gum, just wonderful. The finish is incredible long lasting and really sweet. Found a stockist for this one with reasonable prices. Just a really nice dram!

    I like it very much - great barrel very exotic
    • Nose
      sweetened lemon, oak, chalk, Nevis herbs, slightly warmed honey sweet, tangerine, mango, pineapple, vanilla, mint, fresh wood, green tea
    • Taste
      sour fruity, delicately sweet, oak, pineapple, menthol, tart herbs, nice oily, thick, the Brennereicharacter is still noticeable but the malt is even fruity
    • Finish
      spicy, fruity, peppery oak, herbs - quite long
