Leo Tolstoy was born into the Russian Aristocracy in 1828, Leo Tolstoy is regarded as the father of realist fiction. After achieving initial notoriety with his transparently honest, semi-autobiographical novels recounting the Crimean War, he later found fame with his world renowned epics War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Also a keen playwright and philosophical essayist, Tolstoy was a trailblazer of non-violent resistance, with his moral views later influencing the likes of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandi.
Nose - A lovely fresh bouquet lots of fruit, apricot, peaches and cream some sponge cake and fresh almonds. Typical Ben Nevis character is unleashed with a bit of water as grassy and herbal notes join in. Taste- rich with grassy and cereal flavours from the outset, becoming earthy and mossy, (more Ben Nevis traits). Citrus fruits and some nutty toffee lead us on to a pleasant okay finish with a touch of pistachio nut salt tang.
