Words Of whisky:
The nose, to me at least, is classic Ben Nevis. Whereas for many that might be a selling point, it isn't for me. The palate however, is such a dramatic step up that it lifts to overall score to something very acceptable.
A whiff of sulphur to open things up, accompanied by a metallic/acidic aroma that I've come to associate with Ben Nevis, as well as baby puke. Soft notes of rye bread, and a whisper of orange peel, lemon juice and candlewax.
Lovely creamy stuff, and incredible step up from the nose. A wonderful citrus influence, and subtle notes of honeycomb, as well as soft herbs and spices. Light coriander notes, a hint of nutmeg.
Orange syrup and lingering spices
