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 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.
