  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Definitely not the most dirty Ben Nevis around. Even fruitier than last year's release of casks 72 and 744. Not as oily and none of the darker (caramel, coffee, smoke) notes which I find in those. And compared to the Whiskybase release 6000 it's really a world of difference. All four are very good and have their own distinct qualities, but I think this one has my overall preference.

      Dried apricot, yellow raisin, honey, vanilla, blood orange, almond and banana.
    • Taste

      Even more dried fruits. Dried apricot, fig, blood orange, kiwi, and yellow raisin. Also a grassy touch. And honey, which becomes very prominent when adding a splash of water. Later coconut liquor (a lot!) and mocha.

      More nuts, with slightly burnt caramel. The fruits and honey in the background.
