  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very fresh Ben Nevis, with a lot of (tropical) fruits, sweetness and floral notes, making this a great summer whisky!

      First impression: very fresh! Sweet, fruity, lemon, tangerine, vanilla. Some honey. Clear floral notes as well. Tropical fruits, pineapple. Later on some sweet waffles.
    • Taste
      87 87
      At first very smooth, but after some ten seconds the alcohol starts off, providing a little tingling feeling on the tongue. Sweet, vanilla, waffles, but again a lot of fruits, pineapple. Floral again. Wine gums. Freshness is the keyword here. Some peach and honey, oily structure.
    • Finish
      85 85
      More smooth now, and more sweetness and less fruitiness. Vanilla, honey, some peach. A little bitter note underneath. Middle long finish. Some wood and tobacco at the end.

  6. sengaia scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    This is good whisky, but not yet. Bottled too young and too hot. They should have let it mature for longer. As it is, this is very loud and simplistic. Okay for one glass but not for a bottle.
