Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis Batch 8 TBWC

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Coldorak scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Notes taken from my blog:

    This is one of the best drams of the Boutique-y 2019 advent calendar, and even better than the 23yo Ben Nevis tasted a few days ago. This whisky is whole, gourmand, warm and luscious, perfect for the Christmas season. Veeery good.
    • Nose
      The nose is rich, with toffee, dried fruits (sultanas, figs), and spices. Some dark chocolate gives a gourmand touch with an espresso and some wood varnish in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival with a waxy mouthfeel. Spices like cinnamon and ginger give you some warmth but without being aggressive. Dark fruits, dark chocolate, some orange, some leather notes, maybe also tobacco leaves from a cigar, and a touch of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Slightly drying, with a warmth staying long on the throat and the tongue. Loads of dark chocolate (don’t tell my kids) and oranges.

      Rum & Raisin Ice-cream, Custard, a little solvent such as wood polish, varnish or resin. Flint, chalk and something floral - honeysuckle? A little musty with glass and concrete behind it all.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Butterscotch with a buttery mouth feel. Salted caramel, dark chocolate and a little whit bier.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Slightly bitter dark chocolate and savoury steamed broccoli.
