- A Ben Nevis very complex (too?) That did not totally convinced me .... I remain on my hunger. It's still a good whisky all the same.
Powerful, or mix flowers and fruits (Citrus, banana with a hint of mint ...) The 2nd nose adds coconut and vanilla.
Explosion in the mouth, we feel the strong presence of alcohol (edit: even if well integrated). Very complex one can feel oak wood and mint mix in a fat and oily dance.
Dried fruits, vanilla then comes the fresh grass and the wood ....
- 2020 has passed under a galaxy of great Ben Nevis 1996 releases, but this release is hardly one of the best Nevis we have tried
lacquered fruits, wax bloom and pollen, green apricots, wormwood
bitter pith of apricot pits, some wormwood and unripe fruits
sour lemon and spices, medium

gorgeous Nevis, probably the best in Martin, IMHO ...
- Nose 22, taste 23, finish 23, balance 23
- Fresh nose mixing pastry and floral, cherry plum, a hint of white glue, straw, honey, candle. We find the straw in the mouth, with a veil of smoke that did not appear on the nose. Alcohol is well integrated and feels nice, covering. Long finish on honey and yellow fruits (peach). A very nice dram, which has things to say, fresh and complex.
