‘One can never have enough Ben Nevis in his cabinet’, indie bottler The Whisky Jury rightly thought when they bottled their third single cask Ben Nevis in two years. Ben Nevis 23 Years Old The Whisky Jury 1996 Cask #1372 was distilled in October 1996 and aged for 23 years in refill hogshead #1372. 242 bottles were filled in June 2020 at 50.4%. Ben Nevis 23 Years Old The Whisky Jury 1996 Cask #1372 has a waxy nose with a cornucopia of tropical fruits including apricot, banana, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, peach and citrus. This is joined by notes of almonds, vanilla, mint and ginger. The palate is sweet and fruity with tropical fruits, lemon zest, sweet orange, buttercream, caramel, fruitcake and wood spices, leading to a warming finish with lingering tropical fruit, vanilla, honey and some bittersweet grapefruit.
