Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 2011 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.75 points

  1. KeesD scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    We tasted this one (vat 157/158) alongside the ultimate vat 159. same strength, this one has matured a little longer, but they were next to each other in the barrel. The differences were bigger than expected, in favor of The Ultimate
    • Nose
      88 88
      Compared to the cask number 159 bottle bottled by The Ultimate, the scent of this one is slightly less fresh, slightly more doughy...
    • Taste
      86 86
      A slightly less sharp edge than the Ultimate variant, slightly less fresh, which makes it less special. But still a great whisky
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is slightly shorter, not bad, but not special either.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Clearly still young, but the strong bourbon cask profile makes it work. Very similar to The Ultimate cask 145.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A sweet bourbon influence. Apple, vanilla sugar, peach, shortbread and banana.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Apple, vanilla pudding, bread and almond.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Vanilla sugar, apple, almond and banana.
