Ed's review

Colour: Natural colour, bright copper. Oily in the glass, with tears that develop slowly.

Nose: Sticky toffee pudding with dates and rich caramel. Malt loaf spread with yellow butter and dusted with cinnamon and nutmeg.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Rich and generous. Ripe plums, dates and blackberries stewed in red wine and brown sugar. Flapjack with black treacle, or a treacle tart. Alcohol is well integrated adding just a little spice.

Finish: Medium finish. Rich sherried fruit moves into warming crescendo with a touch of wood spice.

Overall: Excellent, this flavoursome dram will delight Ben Nevis fans.
