A rare Ben Nevis 1970 bottled by the Italian company Moon Imports for their much sought-after 'The Sea' series.
Please note only these pictures is only for illustration.
Colour: amber. Nose: most amazingly, this is something very unusual once again. Starts on a combination of orange squash and motor oil (not kidding), shoe polish, grenadine, pomegranates and something like rhubarb juice. Goes on with whiffs of wet rocks and clay/chalk and gets finally very liquoricy and fruity at the same time. Right, a huge pack of liquorice allsorts. Also a lot of ‘resinous’ honey (honeydew) and old wax polish. What a strange, but charming old whisky! Mouth: nah, this doesn’t work as beautifully as on the nose, its inherent wackiness make it a bit hard to enjoy this time. Notes of dirty honey (whatever that means), Campari, stale Guinness and English brown sauce (or sweetened gravy). Wait, even sweet onions! Finish: rather long, on the same kind of honeyed and resinous notes as on the nose but also something metallic and papery. And some coffee and raisins, from the sherry I guess. Comments: once again, a very unusual old whisky. It’s a thrill to taste these kinds of old whiskies but frankly, sipping a full bottle may well take decades. SGP:541 - 81 points.
