Ben Nevis 10 Year Old - 2021 Bottling, ABV 46%

Nose: Feels lighter compared to 2016, malty and hoppy isn't as prominent

Palate: A blow of zestiness, not as sweet as former bottling, but still sweet, light waves of sweetness

Finish: Short, bitter notes more prominent here

Score : 83, WB189581

Sample from @weihong_0220

If it wasn't a side by side, I'm not able to tell the difference, but the color does show there's a difference in them, the slightly older bottling will be like a big brother compared to the 2021 bottling in this comparison.
