Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 2011 vW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.20 points

  1. MH90 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Sweet and sour, lacking complexity and flavor development. However, you cannot expect that for this price .. although the 4 year old Ben Nevis 2015 from MMCK (wb id: 136661) had this ..
    • Nose
      82 82
      Sweet with sour .. not a little sour. Pineapple immediately comes to the fore, tangerine and lemon follow. Medicinal smoke. Behind this floral with vanilla and honey. The background reminds me of Dalwhinnie 15yo. But man, that jar of sour pickles that comes with it is not my thing.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Dried wood, pine, nutmeg and rosemary, medicinal smoke, hints of vanilla and flowers. It is flat in taste and lacks complexity. Relieved that the acidity in the taste is somewhat lower.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Long and gradual, pleasant. Bitters with dried wood and nutmeg.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This one, compared to Ben Nevis 2011 vW #145, has a more peaty/ashy note. Very tastfull yet not to complex. Drinking whisky for a fair price.
