  1. olegborgol scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful Nevis! A wonderful fruity-tropical nose, maybe even overshadows the branded (for me) creamy. Good fruit-tannin-creamy taste (strength is close to ideal) and a fairly long finish. 23-23-22.5-22.5

  2. Espolon scored this whisky 93 points Member Senior

    Exceptional whisky imho.

    Really great nose, with ripe Kiwis, Grapefruit and some hints of misty notes. Honey as well.

    Sweet and fruity mouth, very creamy, some wood, but without any bitterness or dry notes.

    Medium finish.

    Can‘t say what this whisky needs to be better, quite near at perfection. Need to try it again.

    my winner for 2021 so far

  5. Tokyo_Zurich scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Great nose with kiwi and other tropical fruits. The highlight of the dram.
    The tropical fruits are then a little less present in the mouth and finish. It gets dry easily.
    Either way, another great 96 Ben Nevis.
