Fine, pretty classy stuff.
Dew of the Ben 21 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Round and soft and very creamy. Tangerine, chocolate, toffee, some oak.
Palate: Rounded. A real wave of chocolate flavours hits you, along with nut, a hint of oak and an earthy powerful undertow. Solid stuff.
Finish: Might just be a tad short.
Comment: Fine, pretty classy stuff.
Nose: Beeswax. Tropical fruits. Raisins. Sweet, sugary.
Palate: Creamy but light. Fruity, refreshing. Orangey.
Finish: Lightly smoky. Slightly bitter. Appetising.
Comment: Somewhat lacking in complexity. For the drinker who wants an easily drinkable whisky with some maturity.
