11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.44 points

  1. Kumachan scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    ● The dress.
    Gray gold, slow and wide tears.

    ● The nose.
    Very root, gentian and grapefruit skin, Asian pomelos, grapefruit seed, yuzu and new wood on a sweet vanilla. Beyond is revealed the lilac and the honeysuckle.
    Anise and verbena.
    That it's fresh.

    ● The mouth.
    New wood and pink pepper, again the Asian pomelos, seed and peel of pink grapefruit, lemon confit and anise, verbena and sage, violet, lilac and honey of flowers.
    From the minerality: Crystalline.

    ● The final.
    Long on grapefruit and its glitch.

    Great. Fresh, tangy and medical.
    I love it, flanked by citrus fruits for my greatest pleasure.

    If it had to be given a subjective rating, it would be a 90.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    For its young age this one's already pretty mature. Fruity and sweet, nice fresh whisky, very pleasant.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruits, pear, tropical fruit, fresch. Some peach, later on sweetness comes in, a lot of vanilla then.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Slightly tingling with some pepper, sweet honey. Peach. Pretty full taste.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Stronger now, tingling, more pepper. Again some peach and honey. Pretty long finish.

    Despite it's age and low ABV this Ben Nevis is a very nice bourbon maturing.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Floral. Waxy fruits, citrus, vanilla, honey and Verbena candies.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Oily, powerful and creamy. Pepper, citruses, fruits and dry oak.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length, fruity, spicy.

    Punches above it's weight for a 7 year old. Very fruity on the nose. Light on the mouth. Strong finish of apricot
    • Nose
      Fruit, honey and flowers.
    • Taste
      Sweet, very slightly dry, dried fruit and new wood
    • Finish
      Dried fruit

  9. beefislife scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Nose: sweet grapes, exotic fruits, some citrus, jelly, very sweet

    Mouth: first the sweet exotic fruits, second some peppery notes (that's where you see the young age) smoothly transitioning into the fruits again

    Finish: the fruits stay in the mouth

    Very interesing and fresh. Certainly worth trying. Better than many distillery bottlings in the 12 - 15 yo range.

  10. Roger_Caroni scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Color: light gold, this young whisky aged in bourbon cask is limpid and fat.

    Nose: fruity and fresh, to say the least.
    Beautiful apples, pears and other fruit from the orchard come tickling nostrils all coated with honey.
    A tip of melon is also to my surprise and some more exotic fruits such as pineapple and mango.
    Malt is of course not far, at least for my nose of “rhummer”
    A creamy, gourmet and pastry look emerges from this nose. Very sweet and elegant, I am quite surprised for such a young whisky

    Palate: Sweet wish that gives pride to these beautiful fruits and malt. It’s very creamy, melted, fat and sweet.
    The yellow fruits, honey, and a nice dose of flowers come to mind. Do not ask me which flowers but it’s floral .
    Grapefruit and grapes come to finish the job with a peppery touch.
