Nose
Lots of fruit. Pear drops. Summer fruit pudding. Apples cooked in the oven.
Palate
Quite smooth. Light-bodied. Lots of fruit again. Blackcurrant.
Finish
Crisp and dry. Warm all the way through.
Comment
Hard to guess at the high alcohol strength from the nose. Not the usual big, oily Ben Nevis character. A pleasant fruitiness keeps the sweet notes dominant.

Dave Broom

Nose
Slightly indistinct but in time a rich sweetness.
Palate
Incredibly sweet: demerara sugar and malt. Has good weight, vanilla, almond. Well-rounded and silky.
Finish
Nutty and long.
Comment
Builds from a slightly disappointing nose to a solid sweet palate.
