But the more I try it, the more I notice how complex such an old whisky can be!
My tip for as long as possible and you can let it prance in your mouth for a long time and keep it in your mouth. You will be rewarded with a taste intensity that is second to none. The only drawback in the finish you notice the wood ???? with its strength and flavor (becoming bitter).
Not everyone's whisky ????.
It might seem too complex and surprising to some in taste.
But for me the quality of such a drop in all of its 50 years of rest only becomes clear when I try to enjoy a younger whisky of good quality up to 20 years of barrel maturation in the mouth for as long as this 50 year old. This is impossible because the alcohol becomes too aggressive after a few seconds.
The 50 he Ben Nevis is full of strength but the alcohol does not attack your oral cavity but just soaks up the 40.6%. Like an old slab of crazy great stuff.
