Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1990 LMDW
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.60 points
- The cough syrup texture and taste was surprising and I liked the sweet and dirty mouth. Not an easy dram for sure but definitely an interesting one.
Dried fruits, prunes, orange, lime, coffee.
Punchy and very syrupy. It sticks to the tip of the tongue. Spices, fruits, chocolate. Warming and slightly dirty.
Long. Mouth coating. Slightly bitter.
- This Whisky was sold for 255 € at Whiskyauction in Jan. 2016
- This Ben Nevis is a "Limited Edition" from La Maison du Whisky. It is distilled in 1990 and matured in Sherry Butt, Cask # No. 1506 for "over 20 years", until 2011, where it is bottled by "Cask Strength" of 60.8%. The motif on the label is a copy of the painting "# 003 Deliberate Shapes in Blue, Red, Black and White" from 2010 made â€
Complex and fine with malted barley, lots of coffee, raisins, dried prunes, candied orange, honey, lime, ginger, apricots, gingerbread, pine, broom, hay and cilantro.
