Ben Nevis 1992 20 year old Cadenhead


Very light gold in colour, white wine like, the thick swirl line beads up immediately and drops swift medium thick legs. #thewhiskeychaps


Sweeter than the previous two initially, much sweeter. Sweet lemon jellies, greengages, lychees, it’s quite a bright nose, @whiskeychap says sherbet, definitely, and now a foresty feel is coming through. #thewhiskeychaps

Dry cut grass, some floral perfume like one of the others, juniper, and heather, cereals, then some dunnage, it really thickens up on the glass too over time. #thewhiskeychaps

Decent mouthfeel, and this has to be an ex bourbon cask, possibly 1st fill, loads of ex bourbon spices for me. Bitter lemon, vanilla pods, white pepper, cinnamon, grapefruit pith, pomelo’s, cereals again, lemon and apricot pasties. #thewhiskeychaps

Becoming fruitier with red berries, cherryade, leading towards liquorice now, Eccles cakes and chocolate coated raisins. #thewhiskeychaps


Long side of medium, and it’s citrus zesty alright, which I like, the spices do linger longer, definitely not as rounded as the sherry cask Dram Mòr, but I like it. #thewhiskeychaps

My thoughts

This is another rather good Ben Nevis, again showing just how robust the spirit is. It isn’t one i’d purchase, only for the fact that i tasted slightly better independently bottled Ben Nevis’s on this tasting, but again in my humble opinion it is still pretty good.
