  3. Glen Valley scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    A whisky rarely surpassed in complexity and balance.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Strong nose. Multi-layered fragrance that covers the 56.5 Vol% sustainably.
      Aroma is reminiscent of dry Lake Constance algae and a sidewalk, just before a summer rain.
      Red wine notes come through, peppermint reminiscent of speculoos.
      On top of the glass Brunello or another heavy Italian red. Gooseberry at the bottom of the glass exit.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Sweet. Mon Cheri. Oily, creamy mouthfeel. Not spicy, edible without water.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Surprising on the finish, because it opens again for new flavors and no oak spicy developed. Long, warm, not dry, still creamy.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Ben Nevis can have two distinct faces. This one combines the two in one dram.
    • Nose
      Dirty toffee, peach, butter candy, hazelnut, papaya and apple. Later chocolate paste.
    • Taste
      Peach, butter candy, blood orange, peanut, almond and walnut.
    • Finish
      Walnut, peach, caramel and blood orange.
