Ben Nevis is such an under appreciated malt. The only to use exclusively brewers yeast, and who ships the majority of its product over to Japan for blending. There are so many of the 1996’s out on the independent bottler scene these days, and are generally a great buy. A good first fill hoggie is becoming a rare treat these days, so let’s see what we have..
Sun dried peaches, leather, apple skins, brown sugar, burnt butter
Another good quality sherry cask. No sulphur to be found. Chocolate, apples, white fruit, dates, walnuts.
Apple skins, under ripe oranges, tobacco, buffalo cream.
Long finish, with a slight bitterness.
