Whisky Reviews for Ben Nevis 2013 SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. Amaliana scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Hm, I don’t think we’ll become friends
    Lots of earth, musty and a short, flat finish is the first impression
    Out of the mouth very quickly
    And the typical Ben Nevis glue taste is completely absent

    Ben Nevis 2nd attempt, the bottle is now open for 1 week:
    Air did him good
    It still doesn't taste like Ben Nevis but it is delicious
    I would have guessed Mortlach blindly. Dark ripe plums, tobacco, leather. Nothing more musty. Some almost burnt sausage and dark chocolate.
    Quite tasty

    An extremely young hopper

      Very herbaceous, a hint of clover. No typical Ben Nevis tea notes. Daisy.
    • Taste

      The herbal portion remains. Almost like Swiss herbal sugar or block malt. Bamboo cane and shoe polish. Interesting but not extraordinary.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The leather shoe remains in the mouth for a few minutes. Nutmeg. A slight note of fennel.
