Ben Nevis 1992 16 Year Old, Signatory Single Cask Bottling

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Purchased at The Park Avenue Liquor Shop in NYC the Ben Nevis 1992 16 Year Old Sherry Butt 54.6%ABV is another fantastic Signatory single cask bottling.

Nose: Dark cherry is prominent with brown sugar and molasses, supported with hints of salted butter and bakery spice. A consistent focal point throughout this dram is pink grapefruit suggesting a summer treat despite its savoury depth.

Palette: As expected, Sherry is a main theme. Salt is prominent. There is a heavy mouthfeel which coats the tongue with buttery sweetness. Further pink grapefruit adds a fresh dimension.

Finish: Coffee and cocoa roll through the finish with lingering heat. Still more grapefruit has a drying effect. A hint of dark chocolate that will put a smile on your face.

Overall: An experience well worth its price and certainly a sherry highlight of any Scotch collection. Guaranteed good times at cask strength or with a few drops of water to soften and define its commanding flavour and texture.
