    Ben Nevis 1999/2009, 40%, Jean Boyer Best Casks, 1980 bottles
    Oh no, this is a setback. Sharp nose on rubber, porridge, herbs and very light smoke. After some time something sour will surfaced. The taste is slightly better and firmer than the 40% suggests. Fruity and spicy are the key words. Lemon and grapefruit. Gooseberries. Medium, bitter finish. Nope, there is a lot of better recent Ben Nevis. 71/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/04/09/ben-nevis-1999-jean-boyer/

  2. PierreDH did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

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