Ben Nevis 23 Year Old (TBWC)

That Boutique-y Whisky Company released an excellent Ben Nevis 21 Years before the summer (Batch #8) and now there’s a new Ben Nevis 23 Year Old (Batch #10).



Ben Nevis 23 Years - That Boutiquey Whisky CoBen Nevis 23 yo (48%, That Boutique-y Whisky Co 2019, Batch #10, 558 btl.)

Nose: this typical waxy / fatty profile but surprisingly un-fruity this time. Frosties, lemon balm, pollen. Some bready notes. Almonds. Coppery touches. Perhaps a hint of green banana and marshmallows.

Mouth: fruitier now. Pineapple, triple-sec, banana ice cream. Vanilla biscuits and almond milk, a few grainy ale notes. Then moving towards green, herbal notes with ginger and liquorice. Dried grasses.

Finish: quite long, with hints of grapefruit, ginger and lemon zest.

Good whisky, but in my opinion the other batch was better quality and less expensive. Available from Master of Malt as well as The Whisky Exchange by the way.

Score: 87/100
