Ben Nevis 1992 - 2013, 21 years, 46% alc.
Bottler: van Wees (limited to 695 bottles)
Removal: Sherry Butt no. 2312
Region: Highlands, Scotland
Nose: Perfect entry, powerful and spicy. In addition to a hint of smoke, especially dry fruits such as dates and raisins, dried figs. This is followed by a complex seasoning, accompanied by dark chocolate. Beautiful.
Palate: banana and dark fruits, with apricot. Very dry, coffee notes and milk chocolate. Winter spices.
Finish: Very long and again very dry, with a slight fruity sweetness, but especially oak.
Conclusion: An almost too perfect Ben Nevis. Unconventional, but typical and in the overall view a top whisky.
