Ben Nevis / Berry Bros and Rudd

Ben Nevis 1996 24 Year Old Berry Brothers RMW Exclusive #1196 Review

Ben Nevis 1996 24 Year Old Berry Brothers RMW Exclusive #1196 i picked up the Berry Bros and Rudd tasting pack with Royal Mile Whiskies as there were so many interesting drams included, such as this single cask Ben Nevis.

I haven't had too much Ben Nevis over the years and a quick look at my notes put them all pretty much as indie bottlings so yet another indie bottling here has made me want to search out more from this distillery, especially of this vintage and age.

this was an unexpected pleasure for me, filled with tropical fruit salad that is just a note i love along with some of that old whisky dirtyness that just makes you fall in love with it.

This was a cask that was part bottled then accidentaly finished in sherry, which you would think i would hate, but it has enough of that refill boourbon juicyness left in it to make it utterly interesting and delicious.

If you got a bottle of this, well done, it%apos;s delicious.

This bottle sold out at Royal Mile Whiskies so quickly but the flavours make that no surprise.
