Mein erster Ben Nevis, der gefällt mir sehr gut!

Nachtrag: und die offiziellen Tasting Notes kann ich gut nachvollziehen, auch wenn ich nicht alles gefunden habe, so geht das schon in dieselbe Richtung.

Nose

My recommendation is that you give this dram some minutes in your glass. Cacao powder, raisins, almonds, herbs, caramel and nuts.

Taste

A lot of sweetness then fermented grapes, plums, raisins and a bit of chocolate. Very different from the nose but very good. I like it!

Finish

You have a lot of nuts in the finish and it is very long. Love it!

Comments

Wow a very excellent Ben Nevis which is the best I had from this distillery so far. It is complex and has so many different facets between nose and finish. And what is funny is that the tasting notes of Alambic do match mine quite well.

Pxrider gave this whisky 89 points

Notes by Alambic Aroma - Feine und kräftige Frucht und Kräuternoten. Karamell, Rosinen, kräftiges Kakaopulver, feuchtes Holz, zuletzt feiner, alter trockener Sherry und gebrannte Mandeln.

Geschmack - Fein und sehr fruchtbetont, mit süßen in Rum eingelegten Rosinen, dazu saftige Pflaumen, etwas trockener Sherry, Kirsch-Pralinen. Dunkle leicht bittere Schokolade.

Im Abgang lang anhaltende, herbe Noten von feinem Mocca und Walnuss, dazu fruchtige Nuancen, Hauch von altem Cognac, Nougat, und leichtem Holzrauch.
