    Color: pale straw

    The nose is a wet dream for Nevis fans, from the rest I get the racial wood notes even with an hour of breathing out, all in all not what I expect from Ben Nevis, 22 years and 200 € +. 87 points (For the nose and because the rest clearly tastes like Nevis.)
    • Nose
      First of all tropical tutti, especially papaya, pineapple, but the nose is stuck deeper into the glass is not, then comes a barrage of dry wood and alcohol. With water: old and waxy, the fruits are mostly gone, luckily including alcohol. Freshly cut grass, yeast dough, rapeseed. Acidic, musty undergrowth. Tobacco and old sweat.
    • Taste
      Is not mine without water, so then ... With water: he still has barrel flavor, well with the papaya from the nose, maracuja (I had not yet in Ben Nevis in the crowd), marijuana. Tobacco.
    • Finish
      Medium long, halfway between wax and fruit. Slightly dry.

    Really great Ben Nevis. Can tolerate some water. High aroma density, but still nice and tasty. Like it a lot.

      beautiful, fragrant floral malt with oranges, cherries, ripe bananas, a few exotic fruits such as peach and melon are there, as well as many spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper. Beautiful interaction between a honey sweetness, all the fruits and a slightly spicy ginger. He can do something.
    • Taste
      89 89
      slightly prickly, slightly gingery, some white pepper, in the mouth a little creamy, nuts come through accompanied by sweet fruity aromas.
      The addition of a few drops of water makes it even more accessible and softer.
      The aromas of the nose are getting better now. Great Ben Nevis!

      medium length, dry and slightly bitter, slightly sweetish, but fades quickly

  4. DerDennis! scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Neat Ben Nevis. However, something disturbs me this flowery-soapy. Less on the nose than on the palate.
    • Nose

      Oranges, sweet honey, raisins, pine needles, nutmeg, mint, lemongrass, pepper, floral, lavender, furniture polish, cinnamon, ginger, sour, fermented grapes
    • Taste

      Sparkling, light spicy, white pepper, sweet mint tea, sugared plums, tannins, creamy, nutty, soap, teen, rose petals, lemon balm
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, dry and bitter, but not unpleasant. Woody and slightly sweet, flower tea
