Whisky Review: Ben Nevis 1996 “Aloha Whisky” 24 Year Old
Ben Nevis 1996 Aloha Whisky 24 Year Old / 50%
This is an interesting Ben Nevis, bottled for bar Aloha Whisky in Shinjuku. Featuring a lovely label in an Ukiyo-e style of Waikiki beach in Honolulu Hawaii, this Ben Nevis was distilled on 08/11/1996, laid into single hogshead #1826, and bottled on 12/01/2021 at 50% ABV.
Just 216 bottles!
- Color: old gold (0.6)
- Nose: bright cantaloupe, malty banana and pineapple, apples! and a little acetone
- Taste: oak, quite dry, tropical fruits, apple turnover pastries, and cream
- Finish: short, but pleasant and floral
Proof again that it’s really hard to find a bad Ben Nevis, this is quite lovely.
