Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1990 Gs

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.64 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I like it very much, tasted 3 Sherry-Ben-Nevis is my winner of the evening, the most interesting, has character. The Nasenfasching makes joy, needs a lot of space in the mouth (you can then also play something with water) and the finish has also good to tell, this is no boring. 95 € for 24 years, SC and Fasstärke - check, runs!
    • Nose
      Immediately intense, fresh hay and meadow herbs, wonderful, after a little breathing then pineapple and a sprinkling of grapefruit added, nice sparkling-fruity, and then a strong breeze anise and white pepper
      (Water is not so good - cozy kräutrig with a splash of lemon, the fascination is lost)
    • Taste
      spicy-kräutrig-sweet, crème brûlée with hay, white pepper, banana chips, some burnt cookies, slightly resinous, after a few sips, I also find some grapefruit and bitter lemon (but not nearly as clear as the fruitiness in the nose)
    • Finish
      long and spicy-bitter, here move again ordenlich pepper and resin, rather warm and dry, then cereals and finally a reminder of bitter lemon

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Blindtasting: Initially a bit closed - he makes after a while really nice - very tasty exotic fruits without junk notes
    • Nose
      grapefruit-citrus-fruity sweet oak - oily, spicy, pine needles, herbs, rosemary, cloves, cumin, broth, mineral, honey, resin, sawdust, a distant smoky note, eucalyptus and mint, with more time in the glass extreme vanilla, pineapple
    • Taste
      exotic fruits - pineapple, lime, carambola, mango, banana and cucumber with a good dose of mint and pine needles, in the background dry oak and barrel wort
    • Finish
      mild spicy, cooling and warming with wonderful exotic fruits and fresh herbs

  3. Joschbert scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    great integrated alcohol at barrel strength, very round, just fun
    90/100
    • Nose
      Floral, caramel, organic / fleshy note, trochen, mineral, apple, herbs
    • Taste
      Bouillon, banana, heather, grapefruit, sweet-sour, caramel, wax, slightly salty, barbecue sauce, oranges, cream brulée, sage
    • Finish
      Bourbon note, orange, oak, coconut, slightly peppery, medium to long

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very special Bourbon Cask and also special Ben Nevis, but if you are on Bourboncasks, this is dream material, intense, dry, exotic.
    • Nose
      First closed, do at least a few drops just fine, lots of hay, peach, honey, vanilla, pear, lychee, chalk, grass and eucalyptus, white chocolate, butter biscuits, wood chips, hints of pineapple and herbs
    • Taste
      Papaya, pear, vanilla, chalk, eucalyptus, lemon and camphor, pineapple, lime, mango and banana, some pine nuts and dry oak chips behind everything, some dry herbs as well, hearty, to chew on it
    • Finish
      Slightly milder, dried pineapple and mango, thyme, mint and lavender, dry oak, long

  8. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    No complexity monster but everything beautiful intense, water is necessary
    Blind tasting - my tip: Ben Nevis, ~ 18yo, Bourbon Hogshead
    • Nose
      Discreetly fruity with no water, even a load of oak announces itself in the nose, with water - fresh as the morning air in late summer: rolleyes: much fruity, rapeseed, orange peel, fully ripe pineapple, vanilla
    • Taste
      With water: Soft, ripe pineapple, rapeseed, rape field, soft and fresh, removes salt, gooseberries, honeysuckle, subtle oak spice
    • Finish
      A touch of dry wood, then vanilla, rape-honey, drier, coffee, long, woody
