  1. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Successful PLV miracle.
    • Nose

      Caramel, honey, cream, initially not very complex, takes some time. Sweet, but the sweet does not kill, but comes in small stages.
    • Taste
      89 89
      In the mouth then supple with the elderflower, which I have loved so much in the standard 10s of 2017. Here even more intense and of course with more wood tones.
      Intense, concentrated grapes, and ripe ripe fruits like apricots and sugared pineapple.
    • Finish

      Long and slightly tart and sweet. Here you can notice the careful maturation.

  2. DerDennis! scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    In the nose, I would not have recognized the Nevis, in taste already. However, the alcohol inhibits significantly for me. The whisky needs water.

    Without water, I would give 84 points. With water two to three points more, I still have to experiment.

      fresh, light honey sweetness, cereals, hair spray ... clear alcohol ... that covers almost everything. Citrus fruits, vanilla and malt.
      With water it becomes much fruity. The Nevis herbs also come out.
    • Taste
      85 85
      light sweetness, Ben Nevis herbs, peppery pungency, tannins, sawdust, malt, dry and slightly bitter, a light fruity note.
      Again, he wins significantly with water. It gets creamy, nutty, with oranges and mint
    • Finish
      83 83
      Unsweetened peppermint tea, clear pepper, tannins, getting a bit scrawny .... a bit tart chocolate

      With water the peppermint tea comes out clearer and sweeter and it stays fresher.
