Ben Nevis 1999/2009, 40%, Jean Boyer Best Casks, 1980 bottles
Oh nee, dit wordt een tegenvaller. Scherpe neus op rubber, havermoutpap, kruiden en heel lichte rook. Na enige tijd komt er iets zurigs bovendrijven. De smaak is iets beter en steviger dan de 40% doet vermoeden. Fruitig en kruidig zijn de kernwoorden. Citroen en pompelmoes. Kruisbessen. Middellange, bittere finish. Nope, er bestaat heel wat betere recente Ben Nevis. 71/100

Casks comes directly from Château Haut-Bergeron, the day after they were emptied of his precious liquid. Jean Boyer IB fills them immediately wink
The two are in the same Bordeaux area...
