Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1991 SV
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.19 points
- how many Ben Nevis anything but ordinary and not to despise, interesting in the nose and then intense, but not as good as the darker sister barrel 2907. 86/100
nutty, bright ripe fruit, mirabelles, multivitamin juice, dry reeds, light vanilla comes through, then becomes even more floral, grassy
first hot pepper, some sherry flavor, many spices that cover a light fruitiness with peach and mango
clear oak and intense on the palate, but at most medium long, followed by a short, sweet note
- … too much sulphur for me ...
- Good drink from a (refill?) Sherry keg. The sherry tones are not as dominant as in many "sherry bombs" which I find personally more pleasant. For the price at the age a fair deal!
Clear sherry nose with fruit notes (apples, plum, pear, grape, ...) and spicy aromas (coffee, paper, leather), slightly alcoholic note
Mild and creamy, a nice "Kaufestigkeit", taste of dark chocolate, apricot jam, a little nutty - reminds me of the overall impression of really tasty Nussecken (not those funny standard things from the bakery), wood influences are there, often also caramel (creme brulee) by
rather short, the spicy aromas from the nose make a comeback and it remains licorice, leather, in between even short fruity notes (I'm back at the apricot jam or the dried apricots)
- addition to the review:
sometimes it happens that quite a lot of sulphury notes are arising ...
then for me its mainly just these notes and i cannot get the other aromas anymore.
Surprising, how it can shift from day to day, situation to situation.
- not too heavy, rich and highly recommendable.
This is real enjoyment; very drinkable and appetizing for every occasion. The Sherry is subtle but definitely present - not a bomb.
Very interesting and stunning on the palate.
Tasting with Armin Fuchs.
old leather chair, wood, apples, cherry confiture, fresh plums, very subtle smoke (?), round, a certain freshness comes through due to fruits, mud, spices from the sherry butt are arriving, mandarin peel, plum jam, musty wood, stinging nettle, whiffs of vanilla, burnt coffee beans, slightly tart mocha cream chocolate, cherry juice in the realm of the alcohol, slightly tart, punchbowl in the background, gentle hair spray, rhubarb, fresh cut chives comes with some sulphur and a little hint of spiritus, later more plums and plum jam (pure) with some caramel and some raisins, some cinnamon in the end
cherry and cherry juice (sweet at the beginning), some lemon, orange juice, plums, fruity throughout with a lot of fruit sweetness, fermented apples, pleasant wood, chocolate (also dark), some smoke comes through again, espresso, some tobacco, the wood gets spicier with tartness, nectar, hints of punchbowl, rose wine, little pepper and also chili, hints of vanilla, tingling and lively, juicy, liverwurst, hints of some vegetables
plums, plum jam, wood, little vanilla, spicy with fresh herbs, tea (black and peppermint), and again some hints of smoke, getting sweeter, pepper, pickled plum shell, some mango, chocolate, taste and feeling of liverwurst, tobacco, orange juice and some peel playing with the wood, rhubarb, rum raisin, dried dates, dried apricots later, cooked beef, some sherry, fruity and complex (later cooked cherries), many aromas at the same time, wood (treated wood) like armrests or chair legs, old newspaper, blotting paper, burnt down sparklers
- Have to change my notes:
Cannot get through the sulphur-notes.
Little complexity - some nutty vanilla notes from time to time as well es plum syrup (dark compote), plum jam and plum peels. Sherry has faded a long time ago ...
I almost can't get any roundness at all, unfortunately.
It seems that after the first tasting the Whisky fell apart ...
