Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 1975 SV
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.17 points
- Yellow fruits exotic fruits like papaya pineapple and coconut honey and toffee, a bit of varnish , a very pleasant dram
- Nose very pleasant, greedy, with beeswax, encaustic, varnish, a nice dose of vanilla, bubble gum and lots of coconut and pineapple. A pina colada that would have stayed in a bourbon cask ... Alcohol does not attack the nostrils at all.
In the mouth, it's still very powerful. 63% ... However, we find the main lines of the nose, with this coconut / pineapple mixture, these bubble gum aromas, as well as a hint of citrus acidity. The wood expresses itself on the spices. It will however require a drop of water. It is actually more pleasant, the acidulous aromas are more present. However, it remains too woody (coco / spices) for me, too marked grain / bourbon so that I appreciate it fully. The finish is long, slightly astringent, marked by spices and honey.
- A very good whisky that is drunk very well despite its degree of alcohol.
Very fruity nose. Yellow fruits and exotic fruits. A few alcohol vapors come to tickle the nostrils. We also smell a little vanilla, honey
Powerful but the alcohol is so well integrated that it looks like it collapses a bit. Gourmet Whisky, pastry, on fruit and spices.
Very long and warm. On spices and the sweet side (honey vanilla)
- An excellent product, very original, spicy, tropical (coconut, exotic wood, cinnamon ...) and bourbon (wood, vanilla), all without any aggression despite the alcohol level.
Looks like an old and very good bourbon: a lot of wood, vanilla, caramel, everything melted. A bit of cinnamon and coconut. It's not at all alcoholic for 63%
Very easy, gourmet, sweet, creamy, fat (whisky to drink with a spoon?). More vanilla, exotic wood, old oak, spices, cocoa butter, hazelnut / praline ... it's really very pleasant to taste. Alcohol is perfectly incorporated.
Long lasting, sugar, spices, vanilla. Finish very creamy.

- An original whisky, which is really old bourbon very complex, but a little too much coconut (and spices) for my taste.
a lot of vanilla and coconut, a side very Malibu coconut, a lot of spices too, banana, wood, tobacco, varnish
powerful but alcohol is very well integrated, wax, varnish, wood, plum, orange, dried fruit, coconut, chocolate. Pretty complex. It is very bourbon with coconut in addition
very long, spices, wood, vanilla, coconut.
- A great Ben Nevis that combines elements of Scotch, Irish and American whisky and creates an interesting mix.
Quite bubblegummy at first. There's also a waxy side to it, but a rather sharp one (like hair spray) but this seems to evaporate very quickly. Excellent development on coconut milk, tropical fruits and honey. Lots of vanilla. Superb raspberry jam. Gooseberries. Intense and warming.
Very powerful (duh) and spicy. Some citrus. Coconut and vanilla again. Raisins. Oranges with cloves in the aftertaste. A drop of water brings out herbal notes and something bourbonny (pine resin). Overall a tad too sharp maybe.
Long on vanilla, cloves and a touch of menthol.
