Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 2001 BA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.06 points

  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Aroma: saturated, sweet fruit pulp (peach, apricot), wax, varnish notes, milk caramel, cappuccino, fragrant hay. Over time, more confectionery tones appear, biscuit with cream, honey cake; old lacquered grandmother's furniture. Not difficult, but very nice and not at all annoying.

    Taste: chili pepper, boiled condensed milk, caramel, slightly astringent as from unripe apricots, sweet coffee with milk.

    Finish: creamy coffee, milk chocolate, fading chili pepper, citrus peel, lacquered wood, some chemical shades, highly mineralized water.

    Rating: 88

    The bottom line: it’s not very difficult for a barrel 16 year old, even a bit boring, but pleasant, tight, and the main thing turned out to be delicious, it’s hard to make a low mark. A creamy pastry jam with which to have a good time.
