  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This whisky develops in time, getting more intense, and some bitterness arrives. Besides that, it's fruitiness, ripe and red fruits.
    Overall pretty pleasant dram.

      Initially pretty some alcohol punch. Ripe fruits, red sour apples. Spicy, pepper, herbal. Plums. Later on some floral notes. Then even some baked salmon.

      More smooth now, warming in the belly though. Red fruits, plums, some honey, wood. Later on, the intensity and bitterness get more and more.
      Pretty long finish.

    I'm actually a fan of bottling wine barrels and the nose promises a lot. But then the young age becomes noticeable. For me, the label is the best thing about the bottle. Direct comparison with the 8Y Lafite bottling Caol Ila # 325820.

    A very nice balanced dram. Lots of sweet and fruity notes. A flavor bomb!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Red grape, caramel, butter babbler, brown sugar, milk chocolate, sweet and fruity.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Butter, fudge, raspberry marmalade, milk chocolate, light pepper, strawberry and that typical “filth” of Ben Nevis.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Nice long finish, dry in the throat. Taste flows beautifully.
