Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1966

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly fresh for a 49 year old ben nevis. It probably comes from a Fino cask. The only drawback is the rocketing price.
    • Nose
      Amazingly fresh, baked apple, I used to think that this would be a sherry monster but clearly not.  Violet flowers, perfumy, fresh grape fruits.
    • Taste
      Sweet and intense, again neither woody or bitter. Just like most old whiskies, can't describe some of the flavours, like drinking a sweet perfume. Dynamic on your tongue.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying, grapes, no bitterness.

    Had the opportunity to sample this at Whiskybase Gathering 2018. Absolutely beautiful whisky! Sampled between the Whiskybase glassware and the 1920's Blenders glass. Thanks to Michiel for introducing me to the Blenders glass and for having this beautiful dram available!
