  1. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Excellent classic Nevis, the nose is open, at first a little mushy, but if you let it stand for a while, then it opens brighter in the body and finish and becomes fuller
    • Nose
      89 89
      Brazhnost is present at the start, but in moderation. Honey peaches, wax and cream, coriander, ripe mango, melon and bananas, walnuts in oil, ginger
    • Taste
      90 90
      cream with lemon, wood and some spices, apricot kernel jam, nut paste, viscous and rich
    • Finish
      89 89
      ripe citruses, spices in oil, some pine needles, long enough

    Glencairne
    Failed for the 1996 Nevis. I'm defending.
    1212'6
    Mash, malty and fruity aroma. Doesn't fit into the Nevis canvas.
    The taste is more pleasant, floral-fruity
    Medium finish
    The addition of water saves the aroma, but the taste becomes empty.

    Lots of fruits. Such a large bowl of fruit, but some on the bottom are slightly spoiled.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Peach with a rotten barrel, apricots, one of which is dented. It's the same with apples. Some floral notes and pollen, linden. Candied plum jam your old grandmother discovered.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sharply candy, with jam and fruit, which are described above, but also warm.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Candy-technical, with cotton candy, tin and oriental yellow sugar on a stick.

    this modern acidic / sour sherry style discourages me from drinking whisky, full of sadness, IMHO, well, at least not an alcoholic dram, you can drink it, but how do people praise it, also savor it? it is incomprehensible to the mind, IMHO whisky about nothing ... passed and forgot ...

  11. Yarema scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very classic nose for Ben Nevis. Honey mixed with cream and sweet foods.
    Having breathed, the nose of a washed and slightly spoiled sherry barrel comes to the fore. And then nothing new appears. This foulbrood, as for me, simplifies alcohol a little.
    The taste is good and very balanced with alcohol. Sweetish.
    The finish is average. Especially if kept in a glass for a long time. Dried fruits and some wood.

    Whether you drank red dry with steaks in front of the dego, but did not start from the word at all, it is very difficult to note something interesting, exactly, but without a spark

    Chic Nevis. Classic profile.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Gorgeous nose. Very sophisticated, as for a sherry barrel. Ripe fruits with whipped cream. Super. 23
    • Taste
      91 91
      The taste is a logical continuation of the aroma, but with the addition of berries, currants are clearly visible. Moderate sweetness, slight sourness. 23
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long enough finish. Softly with a light peppercorn, dried berries.
