For me the best modern ex BC Nevis I've ever had in a glass - I just love these exotic fruit baskets - and it works in the way of the aromas - crystalline, noble as from one or two decades before, I'm honestly glad more than a bottle to have got hold of it - it sold out so quickly that the first coil went almost entirely to my friends
starts difficult - some lemon, some glue hardly any presence.
2 drops of water, a little time, a little hand warmth at winter temperatures and it slowly opens up - dried candied fruits pineapple, mango, white gummy bears, fresh lime - the nose has an increasingly fruity sweet and sour note - freshly cut green wood, herbal notes I remember freshly peeled branches, freshly toasted wood, fine wax, crystalline yellow fruits and dried summer flowers - it takes well over 30 minutes to be fully there - then the shy nose has become a fragrant fruit basket
If I didn't recognize blindly as a Ben Nevis, if you know it, he reminds me of the fruitiness of the 1996 ex BC Nevisse - I don't find the typical dirty herbal notes - but I don't miss it either.
sparkling crystalline fruit notes, pineapple, mango, yellow melon - very oily, with creamy, pulsating wood aromas - birch water, wax, sage, rosemary aroma, lime zest, mint, lemon balm
very fruity and delicious - very round with perfectly integrated alcohol - only minimal Nevis genes flash here
White chocolate, green branches, the fruity notes on the palate linger for a long time - chewing the finish reveals delicate Nevis herbs, with the typical dirty oil rag charm - the Nevis is easy to recognize in the finish - nevertheless a bit atypical - otherwise it starts at my nose
