Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Tightly combined, and balanced, fragrant smoke, oak and hard toffee maltiness.
Palate: Chewy. Malty honeycomb in dark chocolate. As though the Belgians had upgraded the Brit ish Crunchie bar. Tropical fruits.
Finish: Clinging. Bittersweet. Firm. Intense black chocolate, but avoids astringency.
Comment: The best Ben Nevis I have tasted.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Woody and earthy (dunnage warehouses) with notes of stewed tea. Water brings out a muscular, toffeed note.
Palate: Big, very dry and tannic with some mushroomy, rancio notes but no great complexity.
Finish: Dry and tannic with some lively spiciness.
Comment: Of interest certainly, but is it a pleasurable experience? Not really.
