Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 2013 PST

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. olegborgol scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Brutal powerful aroma, but the taste is mild, slightly sharp. Dark fruit and cream, sweet cake, wet horse. I liked this young Nevis. 22.5-22.5-22-22

  2. yorkieterror scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    The level of wood influence here is extreme. It has very strong wine-casked markers such as the jammy blackcurrant and acidity in the finish which with the rubbery notes makes me think it could be an STR wine cask with a high char.

      At first there is baked spiced apple strudel, golden syrup and sticky toffee pudding which covers rich dark fruit compote, blackcurrant ham, grapefruit and a touch of orange. If you nose the glass for too long the fruit moves to plimsolls, plastic rubber (basketballs from school), a touch of gas and porridge. A note of wet flint ties it all together.

      Big & Jammy. Lots of blackcurrant jam, more clove spiced apples.
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, drying slightly vegetal and tannic with more blackcurrants, a winey acidity and rubber.

    This is a very divided dram.
    It's - you love it or not.
    We didn't.
    Seasoned sherry casks, soap and very dry finish
