5 Notes

Specialist KayMeertens Tasting note

KayMeertens gave this whisky 86 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Vanilla pudding, peach, caramel, red apple, almond and minerals.

Taste

Peach, caramel, vanilla, smoke, apple and a meaty touch.

Finish

Burnt caramel, roasted chestnut, peach, apple and vanilla. Sticks around nicely, even though that burnt nutty side may be an acquired taste. A taste that every Ben Nevis fan will like though.

Comments

Less and completely different sherry influence compared to its predecessor (52941). Less of that dark, 'roasted' PX style, even though that seems to shine through slightly in the end. More fruity, more vibrant instead.

Color
Amber
Nose

malté, céréalier.

Une belle touche de levures/yaourt aux fruits.

Une touche de fumée.

Pas mal de vanille. Un aspect végétal/mousse/herbes aromatiques suaves.

Herbe coupée/ mentol/eucalyptol/

cire/polish. Légumes cuits.


Taste

Tout y est. Malté/biscuité/beurré

Céréales/ gruau d'avoine

Un petit quick mentholé en milieu de bouche.

Quelques épices

C'est complexe et dense, mais super équilibré.



Finish

Le finish est relativement long si on prend en considération son âge annoncé et est ponctué par un retour vraiment très malté.



Comments

vraiment très agréable.

Il me semble qu'il est monté de quelques crans par rapport à mes souvenirs .

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Bittere fruittonen, perzik, appel, op de achtergrond wat vanille.

Taste

Het fruit valt wat weg tegen wat aardse tonen, hout. Bitter zoet.

Finish

Ietwat droge bittere finish, maar niet onaangenaam. Medium.

Comments

Voor een jonge OB zeker geen slechte dram.

Time for me to taste more Ben Nevis expressions! This OB really appeals to me. Great value for money.
